The Resident Evil 4 remake has just received a gameplay trailer ahead of its March 2023 release. At Capcom’s Resident Evil Showcase on Friday, fans were treated to six-minute-long footage for the long-awaited reimagining of the tale of secret agent Leon Kennedy as he travels to a plague-ridden European village. The publisher has also confirmed a playable demo for its upcoming Resident Evil Village: Gold Edition, allowing players to test out the third-person mode. The full version will be released on October 28th for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X.
Resident Evil 4 remake gameplay trailer
As Capcom’s highest rated game, it was only a matter of time before Resident Evil 4 was rebuilt from the ground up. Cutting-edge graphics have been used to create a more realistic version of the terrifying village, while keeping the essence of the original game intact. The gameplay trailer begins with Leon realistically brushing aside tree branches as he wanders through the depths of the forest, tracking a trail of blood that eventually leads to a ghoulish village. Just like in the original game, the secret agent is in search of the President’s daughter, Ashley Graham, who is apparently being held hostage by the inhabitants of the picturesque town.
It then cuts to a brief glimpse of combat, with the camera maintaining an over-the-shoulder perspective – similar to the Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 remakes, bringing a bit of added jitter during the tense chase sequences. The mechanics remain intact, as evidenced by a brief encounter against the pitchfork-wielding Los Iluminados, where shots can be followed by a spinning spin kick and the occasional cheesy one-liners. In terms of melee, Capcom has added a defense move and a myriad of quick events, which aim to provide a “deeper combat experience”.
The Resident Evil 4 remake will be released on March 24, 2023 for PC, PS4, PS5 and Xbox Series S/X. Pre-orders are available now on all platforms.
