To mark Tokyo Game Show 2022, Capcom has confirmed a new platform for the upcoming Resident Evil 4 Remake, and a special showcase has been announced for next month.
Resident Evil 4 Remake is officially coming to PlayStation 4, and more information about the game will be revealed at a special showcase Capcom will host in October. Following the announcement, Capcom also confirmed a release date of March 24, 2023, and that the game will be released for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Capcom had previously made no mention of older consoles, leading many to assume that the Resident Evil 4 remake would be a proper next-gen-only release.
On the one hand, this would mean that the limitations of older consoles would not hamper the RE 4 remake, but on the other hand, it would also mean that some gamers would be left out if they still couldn’t get their hands on a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X console.
However, Capcom has now confirmed that the Resident Evil 4 remake will be available for PlayStation 4 at launch. The company confirmed this during its Tokyo Game Show 2022 presentation but stopped short of showing the PS4 version of the game in action. Those wanting to see more of the RE 4 remake should tune in for a special Resident Evil presentation in October, though no specific date or time has been announced for the event. No dedicated Xbox One and Nintendo Switch game versions have been announced either.
In addition to confirming the upcoming remake of Resident Evil 4 for PS4 at the Tokyo Game Show, Capcom also informed fans about some other new content for the survival-horror franchise.
The most important of the upcoming expansions is the Resident Evil Village DLC, which will be released on October 28. The Village Winter Expansion adds the Shadows of Rose storyline, an optional third-person mode to the base game, and new characters for the Mercenaries mode.
Capcom also revealed what new modes Resident Evil fans will be able to play in the near future with Village. These include a cloud version of Village coming to Nintendo Switch and a VR version of the game for Sony’s PlayStation VR2 headset. It will be interesting to see what else Capcom has in store for Resident Evil fans when it launches in October.
