Resident Evil 4 Remake Release Date Announced
The highly anticipated remake of Capcom’s classic horror game Resident Evil 4 has finally received an official release date. The remake of the game has been highly anticipated by both veteran gamers and newcomers alike since first being announced. The remake is set to launch on March 23rd, 2021 and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms.
What to Expect From the Resident Evil 4 Remake
Fans of the classic Resident Evil 4 title should expect to see some major changes to the game’s mechanics. One major change to the game is the new FOV (field of view) as well as a new aiming system that makes for more dynamic combat choices throughout the game. The developers have also implemented improved graphics and other enhanced visuals to bring the game into modern era standards. On top of these changes, the game will also feature new sections and completely updated areas. The game’s overall story is also said to remain unchanged when comparing it to the original as well.
In terms of the game’s cost, the Resident Evil 4 Remake is estimated to cost around $60 when it first releases. It is also likely that the game will have some additional downloadable content (DLC) such as additional parts of the story, extra characters and costumes, and of course extra items that can be found in the game. Despite fans having plenty to look forward to in the new game, it is also important to remember that this is still a remake of an older title. Hardcore fans of the original title should know what to expect from the remake, yet be aware of the potential changes that may have been made to the formula.
The Return of Leon S. Kennedy
Along with all the hype for the remake of Resident Evil 4 comes a lot of hype for Leon S. Kennedy’s return as the game’s central character. Leon S. Kennedy’s return to the Resident Evil franchise will be welcomed with open arms, as many fans have been curious to see how Capcom’s iconic character will look after 15 years away from the spotlight. Along with Leon, other characters such as Ada Wong, Ashley Graham, and more are set to make their return as well.
What the Future Holds
Although the Resident Evil 4 Remake is set to release soon, Capcom still has plenty more in store for the franchise and its fans. Part of Capcom’s strategy for their upcoming Resident Evil 8 game is to streamline the storytelling from Resident Evil 4 Remake into Resident Evil 8. This makes sense, as Resident Evil 8 will be the first full-fledged sequel to the popular survival horror game since its 2005 release. The topic of the Resident Evil 8 game’s release date is still up-in-the-air, as Capcom simply confirms that the game is still in development for 2022.
Capcom’s remake of Resident Evil 4 is set to be released on March 23rd and will bring a breath of fresh air to the classic title. Whether you’re a die-hard fan of the game or simply a newcomer looking for a horror experience, the game will be sure to deliver all the nostalgia and thrills you crave. With the success of the game, Capcom is looking to streamline the storytelling of Resident Evil 4 into the upcoming Resident Evil 8, setting up what could end up being the biggest Resident Evil title yet. For now, excited fans of the series should simply prepare to take on the original story of Resident Evil 4 as Capcom continues to work on the newest game in the beloved series.
