Resident Evil 4 Remake Release Date

Capcom's long-rumored, much-anticipated remake of Resident Evil 4 is officially a thing, and it'll be available on March 24th, 2023 for PS5, Xbox Series X and S, and PC via Steam.

During Sony's State of Play, they debuted the first official look at the horror game's gameplay.

In addition to the old-school remakes, Capcom is working on a PSVR2 version of Resident Evil: Village, the latest Resident Evil game. The first trailer for this piece of content shows scenes from the game's early stages, focusing on everyone's favourite tall vampire lady.

Along with Resident Evil 2, it is widely regarded as the best game in the series. Furthermore, it is frequently referred to as not just one of the best horror games of all time, but one of the best games of all time in general.

We're back in the shoes of Leon S. Kennedy, this time as a much more experienced survivor since we last saw him in Resident Evil 2.

Resident Evil 4 will be a "reimagining" of the 2005 game's storyline, with the goal of "achieving state-of-the-art quality for a survival horror suitable for 2023, while preserving the essence of the original game," according to a PlayStation Blog post shared following the event.

There appear to be many more nighttime scenes than in the original, implying a greater emphasis on horror.

Shinji Mikami, the original director, appears to be fine with any potential plot changes, joking in a recent interview that he hoped Capcom could "improve the story," given that he wrote the original in just three weeks.

With Resident Evil Village winning Game of the Year in 2021, let's take a look at when we'll see the original spooky village in a Resident Evil 4 remake.
