Capcom’s Resident Evil 4 is getting a remake and it is coming to the PS5, Xbox Series X /S, and PC via Steam on March 24th, 2023. Capcom showcased a trailer during Sony’s PlayStation State of Play live stream on Thursday.

The remake brings back the 2005 classic, a franchise-defining Resident Evil 4 with its new gameplay elements. The game revives the gruelling survival horror and rescue starring Leon S. Kennedy, and the kidnapped president’s daughter, Ashley Graham.

This time, the game is being developed to achieve state-of-the-art quality for a survival horror suitable for 2023, while preserving the essence of the original game,” Capcom’s Edvin Edso wrote in a PlayStation blog post. “We aim to make the game feel familiar to fans of the series, while also providing a fresh feeling to it. This is being done by reimagining the storyline of the game while keeping the essence of its direction, modernizing the graphics and updating the controls to a modern standard.”

Capcom says Resident Evil 4 will also have some content for Sony’s PlayStation VR2. The studio confirmed it is also working on bringing Resident Evil Village’s story campaign to Sony’s next-gen VR system, and showcased a trailer featuring the intimidating Lady Dimitrescu.

You’ll use the PlayStation VR2 Sense controllers to represent each hand in-world,” Capcom revealed. “Try guarding using both of your arms and Ethan will guard in the same way; hold up a gun and Ethan will hold up his. You are also now able to execute dynamic actions such as firing your gun while holding a knife with the other hand, or holding a handgun with one hand and a shotgun with the other. These advanced controllers increase the player’s immersion with the game.”

Sony is yet to announce a release date for its PSVR2, and there is no date and pricing yet for Resident Evil Village’s VR version.
