We've only just been treated to the delights of the Resident Evil HD Remaster, but Capcom already has begun readying Resident Evil Revelations 2 for launch next month. I say next month, but RE: Revelations 2 will be arriving in weekly instalments from February 24th, through into March.
The first all-new Resident Evil title since the controversially crud Resident Evil 6, RE: Revelations 2 looks to continue the gameplay from its spin-off predecessor, mixing classic survival horror with all-out action sequences. Claire Redfield returns, alongside series favourite Barry Burton and a few surprises, as the player explores a remote prison island infested with horrors. Before you start getting your brain munched on though, you might want to check out the official system requirements for Resident Evil Revelations 2 to see if your rig's up to the task.

If you played the original Resi Revelations, which you really should've, then these requirements should be pretty familiar to you. They're almost identical except for increased hard drive demands, so if you could run then then it's safe to assume you can run this.
If you've not, the system requirements for Resident Evil: Revelations 2 are mercifully low, pretty similar to the HD Remaster in fact. Processor demands look to be the most challenging, but any semi-decent graphics card bought during the lifetime of the previous generation of consoles should be good to with RE:R2. Resident Evil Revelations 2 has been created with the capabilities of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in mind, which is reflected in these modest requirements.
As with most Resident Evil titles a gamepad is recommended, but not vital. It's a third-person action game that's still pretty slow-paced, which makes it ideal fodder for both control setups.
