Re Remake
The original game, released in 2005, was well accepted by fans and audiences with many of the opinion that it is one of the best games in the series.

Apart from the specifications, Capcom also gave fans a new look at the upcoming title. If the trailer is anything to go by, the game will be incredible and deserving of all the hype it is getting.

The trailer revealed that the game’s story is faithful to the original version but with improved visuals and mechanics. The enhanced graphics, smooth movement, deeper crafting system, new enemy behaviors, and stealth features, among others, make the game feel more refined and much better than the original.

Resident Evil 4 Remake is Capcom’s new take on the 2005 original, which was well-received by audiences and critics. In fact, it is regarded as one of the franchise’s best entries. Resident Evil 4 Remake follows similar remakes of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3, both of which performed well with audiences. Given the trailer, it is expected that the game will perform just as well, if not better, than those titles.

Finally, if you are a fan of Resident Evil Village, watch out for the Gold Edition which is slated to release on October 28, 2022.

Resident Evil 4 Remake will debut on March 24, 2023, for the Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. While Capcom hasn’t confirmed it, there are indications that the game will also feature a version for the Xbox One console.

Resident Evil 4 Remake is currently available for pre-order on Steam.
