Resident Evil 4 remake announced for PS4

The company earlier announced a remake for the latest generation consoles but did not provide any indication it will be developing a version for any older console until now.

Capcom announced during its TGS 2022 Online Program that it will release the upcoming Resident Evil remake for PS4.

Some fans are actually against the Resident Evil 4 remake but we'll just have to wait and see if Capcom did a great job at bringing the classic survival horror game to modern life.

Earlier in the year, the publisher revealed it's working on a remake of the popular game for the PS5 and Xbox Series S/X. The revelation came during the PlayStation State of Play back in June and was accompanied by a trailer that showcased the game’s modernized graphics. However, apart from an evident change to the game’s aesthetics, the trailer did not provide insight into any other aspect of the game, especially the mechanics.

Here is the story of the Resident Evil 4 remake, as per the official website:

6 years have passed since the biological disaster in Raccoon City.

Leon S. Kennedy, one of the survivors of the incident, has been recruited as an agent reporting directly to the president of the United States.

With the experience of multiple missions on his back, Leon is sent to rescue the president's kidnapped daughter.

He tracks her to a secluded European village, where there is something terribly wrong with the villagers.

And the curtain rises on this story of daring rescue and grueling horror.

Hopefully, Capcom's next mainline Resident Evil game comes out in 2024.

Capcom published the original Resident Evil 4 in 2005 and it quickly captured the hearts of both critics and fans alike. While the publisher initially announced the game as a GameCube exclusive, it was eventually ported to other platforms, including PlayStation 2, PC, and Wii. It's widely considered the best Resident Evil game of all time and one of the most influential games in history.

While there is a dearth of information on the game at the moment, Capcom revealed it will provide more details during the Resident Evil Showcase live stream in October.

In other news, the company confirmed that a cloud version of Resident Evil Village, among others, is coming to the Nintendo Switch before the year ends. Furthermore, it will also release a DLC titled Winters Expansion for Resident Evil Village next month.
