Immediately after the presentation of Silent Hill Capcom also held its own online broadcast dedicated to the Resident Evil series. The main announcement was the remake of Resident Evil 4.
The developer showed several gameplay scenes from the beginning of the game, and western journalists were also given the opportunity to play the demo version. According to their impressions, the remake is very similar to the original, but has become scarier and more realistic. It also features new mechanics — for example, Leon can sneak up and quietly kill enemies from behind in stealth mode, and parry attacks with a knife.
Resident Evil 4 is scheduled for release on March 24, 2023 on PC, PS4, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, the game already has a page on Steam, where it can already be pre-ordered (the basic version costs UAH 1,999). The publisher promises that the purchased PS4 version can later be upgraded to PS5 for free if desired.
The online shooter Resident Evil Re:Verse, which was announced at the beginning of 2021 and has been postponed several times, should still be released in a few days, on October 28. Capcom said it will be free for all Resident Evil Village owners, will have crossplay, and will be supported by the developer after release with new content.
Resident Evil Village will receive an expanded version of the Gold Edition – with the new DLC The Winters’ Expansion, a third-person mode in the main campaign, and new content for the Mercenaries mode (in particular, you can now play as Lady Dimitrescu). Resident Evil Village Gold Edition is also scheduled for release on October 28.
Capcom also announced several games coming to Nintendo Switch, namely Resident Evil Village, RE7, RE2 Remake, and RE3 Remake. All of them will be “cloud” and will appear on this platform gradually – the first game will be released on November 11, and the last – on December 16.
