Resident Evil HD Remastered Announced by Capcom for Xbox One, 360, PS4, PS3 and PC

By   /   Aug 5, 2014

Capcom has announced today that it is currently developing an HD version of the Resident Evil remake that was released back in 2002 for the GameCube and then in 2009 for the Wii.

The developer took on the original 1996 title and vastly improved it by adding better environments, more story details, a variety of new gameplay elements and improved overall visuals. Capcom is now looking to re-release that game as an HD overhauled version.

According to the announcement, you can expect the digital release to happen in early 2015 for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. It will support 5.1 surround sound audio and importantly 1080p visuals. That said, players will still have the option of switching between either the original 4:1 ratio or the new 16:9 one.

As for the control schemes, Resident Evil HD Remastered will feature a classic control style, as well as a special modern one to cater for the new-age gamers.

The Resident Evil remake is considered by many to be the best title in the franchise. Critics who have targeted Capcom for ruining the Resident Evil franchise with the recent releases should be pretty happy with this news.

The last main entry in the franchise was Resident Evil 6 which was released in October 2012. A sequel is rumored to be in development but Capcom has not hinted towards any such thing.
