Resident Evil 2 Remake, Resident Evil 3 Remake, and Resident Evil 7: Biohazard got new-gen updates; Resident Evil: Village receives new content, Resident Evil Re:Verse is finally coming soon, and we’ve also seen some new elements from the Resident Evil 4 Remake. We couldn’t have squeezed all that into the title!
Resident Evil Village Gold Edition is coming on October 28. It will include The Winters’ Expansion DLC and the unwanted and un-anticipated Resident Evil Re:Verse, which could be called Resident Evil Resistance 2. With The Winters’ Expansion, you can also play through the story in a third-person view. The Mercenaries: Additional Orders brings new maps and playable characters (Chris Redfield, Karl Heisenberg, Lady Dimitrescu), and the game’s story continues in Shadows of Rose. It takes place sixteen years after the end of the Village and stars Rose, Ethan Winters’ daughter, who continues to struggle with her supernatural powers.
In the Megamycete (the Japanese name is better, Fungus Root…), the main element behind RE7 and 8, a twisted, mysterious world awaits us, and it is here that we must find the antidote. Resident Evil Re:Verse will be available for free to all Resident Evil: Village owners (so there’s a tie-in here, too); Resident Evil: Village Gold Edition will also be available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam and Google Stadia (consoles will also have a disc edition). Resident Evil Village producer Tsuyoshi Kanda confirmed that the game’s story mode is already in development for Mac and PlayStation VR2.
Capcom has also revealed a new video for the Resident Evil 4 Remake. During the Capcom Showcase 2022, Capcom wrote, “Fans with the newly announced Resident Evil 4 on their bingo cards are also in luck, as director Yasuhiro Ampo and producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi discussed the modern reimagining of the 2005 classic. The development team aims to dial up the original release’s key feelings of loneliness and the fear of enemies blinded by zealotry; when the action-packed survival horror title reawakens on March 24, 2023” on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series and PC (Steam, almost a sure thing with Denuvo).
Finally, Capcom has announced that Resident Evil 2 Remake, Resident Evil 3 Remake and Resident Evil 7: Biohazard are now available for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series. Those who already own the game on PlayStation 4 and/or Xbox One can upgrade for free, and an update has also been released on PC. Ray tracing, 3D audio, and high frame rate have been added, and the DualSense controller is supported on PlayStation 5.
