Resident Evil HD Pegged for January Release

By   /   Dec 4, 2014

Resident Evil HD, the remake of the original title, will be officially launched next month, Capcom has announced.

The overhauled version will run in native 1080p on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while on last-gen consoles – PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 – it will run in 720p.

According to Capcom, the game comes with a slew of improvements, including fully remastered sound effects with 5.1 surround support. Players can switch between 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios on the fly.

All difficulty levels will be present, as well as the new “Very Easy Mode,” for those incapable of surviving the zombie apocalypse.

Capcom has also stated that Resident Evil HD will feature the classic controls scheme, but players can choose for a revamped version as well where the character moves in the direction of the analogue stick.

Resident Evil was first released in 1996 on the PlayStation One and has been widely accepted as the best in the franchise. Since its release, Capcom may have taken a bit too much liberty and have steered the franchise in numerous directions.

For veterans who have gone through the original title, being able to play it again with overhauled visuals will be definitely a treat.

Resident Evil HD will release on January 20 and cost $19.99/€19.99/£15.99.
