Capcom gave perhaps the best look yet at its highly anticipated Resident Evil 4 remake – and shared a bit more about its various other Resident Evil projects – in its latest video showcase, with the remake getting both new gameplay footage and a new trailer.
On the gameplay front, Capcom shared a few action-packed minutes from its RE4 remake, starting with a sequence from the start of the game that sees protagonist Leon sneaking through the woods before stumbling upon a seemingly abandoned barn. It’s a suitably atmospheric sequence, showing off the remake’s various visual upgrades, and which devolves into a chaotic open-air battle as Leon is overrun by Ganado. Inevitably, things end with our old chainsaw friend – but Leon manages to keep a cool head this time around.
Following its latest gameplay reveal, Capcom discussed the remake in a bit more detail, explaining that its goal is to “[pay] compared to the original game world while implementing new ideas and cutting-edge graphics to reinforce the core concepts of the title”. This, he says, “will provide a new experience with a sense of familiarity if you’ve played to the original, which both newcomers and veterans of Resident Evil 4 will enjoy”.
Some of these newly implemented ideas include a wider range of attacks for the Ganado, as well as a newly added and extremely bloody knife parry maneuver for Leon. There is also a new trade mechanic for the merchant giving players the ability to trade gems they find on their travels for special items.
As previously announced, Resident Evil 4 Remake will launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam on March 24 next year. Capcom has now confirmed that players with the PS4 game will be able to upgrade to the PS5 version for free.
He also revealed the different retail editions he releases, including a deluxe edition – which includes additional costumes, deluxe weapons, a treasure map, a sunglasses accessory, and a character function. Soundtrack Exchange – plus a physical-only Collector’s Edition, which contains all of the above plus a Leon figure, digital soundtrack, artbook, poster, steelbook, and more.
Those who pre-order the Standard Edition will receive a Gold Briefcase variant and a Handgun Ammo Charm for use in-game, while Deluxe and Collectors Edition pre-orders will also receive the Classic Briefcase and Green Grass Charm. Anyone who pre-orders the digital Playstation version gets a mini soundtrack.
Capcom ended its Resident Evil 4 remake segment with a new trailer, but there was also a lot of talk about its other projects. His Resident Evil Village Gold Edition and Winters’ Expansion have aired again, for example, with a bit more sharing on the latter’s “realm of consciousness” setting. It also featured the fun treat that – in keeping with the fact that Ethan Winters’ face was never seen in the game – will remain hidden in the expansion’s new third-person mode, with Ethan turning his face away each time. as players try to adjust the camera.
Anyone who wants to experience the new third-person mode can do so via a new Resident Evil Village demo which is launching today on all platforms, offering 60 minutes of play time – which can also be experienced from the original point of view at The first person.
We also got more details on the long-delayed Re:Verse multiplayer – now confirmed to support cross-play between different platforms – which is enjoying a brief early access period for all Resident Evil Village owners. from 7 p.m. PDT on October 23/3 a.m. BST on October 24. Early Access ends October 25 at 11pm PDT/7am BST October 26. Capcom also shared its post-launch plans for Re:Verse, promising at least three updates after release.
And finally! Release dates for the various cloud versions of Resident Evil coming to Switch. Resident Evil Village arrives on October 28, with the Winters expansion scheduled for December 2, and these are followed by the Resident Evil 2 Remake on November 11.
