During Capcom’s showcase, fans were given a treat of a brief and visually spectacular teaser of the new Resident Evil remake, Resident Evil 4. The brief showcase revealed a more dark and horrific RE4 setting, which seems to be taking inspiration from its original concept. The gameplay footage revealed a much darker tone for the village and forest area in the familiar Spaniard setting running on Next-gen hardware. Leon is shown traveling through the level and takes out his gun, aiming it around a corner with caution. Not much is revealed but seeing the game in motion was a treat for hardcore horror fans.
Not many other details have been revealed so far for this remake. No mention of game modes or specific changes to gameplay, but one can probably assume that the RE2 and RE3 remakes will have a heavy influence on this new title. I personally hope for an expanded mercenary mode with this release and it would be the ideal chance to bring back a co-op mode, even if it’s specifically for mercenaries.
Resident Evil 4 is coming out on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam.
