Gaming News Resident Evil 4: Remake, release date, news – all the info on the return of the cult horror game

It was one of the nice surprises of the State of Play on Thursday: the announcement of the remake of Resident Evil 4, a cult survival horror originally released in 2005. After the second and third episodes, therefore, Capcom continues to deliver the famous license by date. And while the information has just dropped, there are already plenty of details for them to mouth. We take stock for you.

Above in autoplay is the trailer announcing the Resident Evil 4 remake.


We start with the most important information, the release date: the remake of Resident Evil 4 will land March 24, 2023 on PS5, Xbox Series and PC. Yes, it’s not because the title was revealed on PlayStation that it’s not cross-platform! So there’s still a good year left for the Capcom teams to polish their baby looking great in this first trailer. Note that the survival horror revamp will eventually feature content for PSVR 2, Sony’s new virtual reality headset. For this point, however, no earlier date. It must be said that the accessory does not even have an exit window.


As with the remakes of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3, Capcom will take up the basics of the fourth installment and interpret many things in a new way. The goal is to find a good balance Modernity and respect for the base gamepublished in 2005. “We are developing (Resident Evil 4, ed.) with the aim of offering an exceptional level of quality, consistent with what can be expected from a survival horror in 2023, while maintaining the to preserve ‘essence of the original game’. tells us Capcom about the PlayStation Blog. “We want fans of the series to rediscover what made the game so successful, while adding new and refreshing elements.” As a result, the story will be rewritten while preserving the main plot, the controls will be updated to the current standard (we think in particular remembering to be able to shoot while moving), without forgetting “an impressive visual rendering of detail”. The Resident Evil 4 remake will therefore naturally exploit the potential of the RE Engine, Capcom’s game engine. Finally, note that we don’t currently know if the adventure will take place in third or first person, like on RE7 and RE8.

Even if it is known that the scenario will be the subject of notable changes, Capcom remains mysterious regarding them at the moment. In comparison, the Resident Evil 2 remake had welcomed additional phases compared to the original work. We can therefore imagine a similar treatment in this case. What is certain, however, is that the cult scenes will be there. Indeed, the trailer foreshadows the moment when the hero, Léon S. Kennedy, begins his macabre adventure, very thoughtful, with his head resting against the window of a vehicle. Just like the moment he encounters his first zombie in a shack while looking for help. As a reminder, the events of Resident Evil 4 take place six years after those of the second installment. Using his reputation and experience, Léon must find the recently kidnapped daughter of the President of the United States, Ashley, who stars in the trailer. A track that will lead him to a remote European village with not really comfortable residents and run by a sect.


Aside from the return of the cult-horror franchise – especially after the very good Resident Evil Village – Resident Evil 4 marked the series’ entry into the modern era. Fixed camera angles in the closet: space in a third-person view, with a special focus on the action without neglecting the atmosphere. The recipe for success! With its many new editions, Resident Evil 4 has more than sold 125 million copies worldwide. You will therefore understand that this remake is expected at the turn after Resident Evil 3’s redesign has not convinced more than that. After the seventh and eighth episodes, Capcom knew restore the image of his franchise, with a horror immersion more immersive than ever, supported by a solid technique and an excellent artistic direction. This new title seems to have been the subject of the same care. In short, we can’t wait. Response on March 24, 2023 on PC and Consoles.
