PlayStation began its latest State of Play showcase with a big announcement that has been expected for a little while. Resident Evil 4 has been confirmed and the showcase also gave us a release date for the remake. We haven’t been given much information about what to expect but, it looks like the new Resident Evil 4 will be slightly different to the original.
From the trailer we can see that there are some new things and the blog post from PlayStation (https://blog.playstation.com/2022/06/02/resident-evil-4-comes-to-ps5-next-year-first-gameplay-and-story-details/) confirms the story has been re-imagined to give it a “fresh feeling”. It’s set in a secluded European village which shares similarities with Resident Evil 8: Village but there was never any major connection between the two games.
PlayStation has announced that Resident Evil 4 will release March 24th 2023. We can expect to hear a lot more news about the upcoming remake later this year and gameplay is expected to follow soon.
