Resident Evil 4 remake just received a gameplay trailer, ahead of its launch in March 2023. At Capcom’s Resident Evil Showcase, held early Friday, fans were treated to six-minute-long footage for the hotly-anticipated reimagining of secret agent Leon Kennedy’s tale, as he journeys onto a plague-ridden European village. The publisher 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 launches October 28, across PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X.
Resident Evil 4 remake gameplay trailer
As Capcom’s hightest-rated game, it was only a matter of time before Resident Evil 4 got rebuilt, from the ground up. Cutting-edge graphics have been used to create a more realistic version of the dreadful village, whilst keeping the essence of the original game intact. The gameplay trailer opens with Leon realistically pushing away tree branches as he wanders deep into the forest, tracking a blood trail that eventually leads to a ghoulish village. Just like in the original game, the secret agent is on the hunt for the President’s daughter, Ashley Graham, who is seemingly held hostage by the denizens of the quaint town.
It then cuts to a brief glimpse at combat, with the camera maintaining an over-the-shoulder perspective — akin to the Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 remakes, bringing some added shakiness during tense chase sequences. Mechanics remain intact, as evidenced by a brief encounter against the pitchfork-wielding Los Iluminados, where gunshots can be followed up with a spinning roundhouse kick and the occasional cheesy one-liners. In terms of melee, Capcom has added a parry move and a myriad of quick-time-events, that aim to deliver a “deeper combat experience.”
Resident Evil 4 remake launches March 24, 2023, across PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series S/X. Pre-orders are now live across all platforms.
