After years of rumors, Capcom has announced a remake of the iconic survival-action game.
Capcom has officially announced the long-rumored remake of Resident Evil 4, via Sony’s State of Play today.
What’s more, we got a pretty solid look at the remake via a detailed cinematic trailer captured on PS5, and a release date of March 24, 2023. We also learned that there’s PSVR2 content in development, though no further details on that component were shared. And per the official trailer, it’ll be headed to Xbox Series S and X and PC as well as PS5.
According to a PlayStation Blog post shared following the event, Resident Evil 4 will be a “reimagining” of the 2005 game’s storyline, with an aim to “achieve state-of-the-art quality for a survival horror suitable for 2023, while preserving the essence of the original game.” It looks like there may be changes to the original’s controls in addition to graphical updates.
