At at the moment’s PlayStation State of Play occasion, Sony began off with a bang: the Resident Evil 4 Remake, coming March 24, 2023 to PlayStation 5, Xbox, and Steam.
The debut trailer for RE Remake affords a mighty acquainted, although way more detailed, snapshot of the beloved game. We’ve acquired Leon Kennedy in his trademark jacket and the village from the opening space. But it additionally seems to be to depict some scenes we do not truly see within the authentic game (no less than so far as I recollect), like Ashley fleeing by means of the woods and arriving on the village. Perhaps the Remake is planning on increasing RE4’s story a bit?
The vibe is certainly leaning into the horror aspect of survival horror; I believe RE4’s goofy moments are nonetheless in there, however they’re positively not a part of this trailer. Here’s what Capcom needed to say on the PlayStation weblog:
“This time, the game is being developed to achieve state-of-the-art quality for a survival horror suitable for 2023, while preserving the essence of the original game. We aim to make the game feel familiar to fans of the series, while also providing a fresh feeling to it. This is being done by reimagining the storyline of the game while keeping the essence of its direction, modernizing the graphics and updating the controls to a modern standard.”
The trailer additionally mentions assist for PSVR2 is being labored on, although it is unclear if will probably be obtainable within the game at launch. RE4 Remake will land on PC, however the VR assist is much less of a positive factor. RE7’s PSVR assist was by no means ported to PC VR platforms.
