Capcom has revealed a full remake of Resident Evil 4, one of the most popular games in the series. It has significantly improved the graphics and appearance of the characters, the gameplay and the scenario have also received some changes. Also presented is an add-on to Resident Evil Village: Winters’ Expansion, which will reveal the story of a grown-up Rose, bring a third-person view and an expanded Mercenaries mode to the game.
The extended story of Resident Evil 4 suggests more coverage of the relationship between the characters. Scenes involving Ashley and Leon will be expanded and deepened in terms of conveying emotions. The remake also puts even more emphasis on conveying horror in relevant scenes.
Of the changes in the game, small changes in trade should be noted – treasures can now be used to buy improvements, weapons and other items. The knife in the character’s hands will be more important – it will help in the parry and release from the capture, as well as allow you to finish off the enemy. But it will break down. There will be QTE scenes in the game, but it will be a maximum of one click, depending on the situation, without combinations.

The game has changed a lot visually – in fact, this is a new level of graphics, much more in line with modern ideas and technical capabilities. Although some reviewers noted minor controversial decisions regarding the character’s hair and other details, they generally do not affect the overall experience of the game. GameSpot made a video comparing the old and new graphics.
Resident Evil 4 will release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC and Xbox Series X on March 24, 2023.
In addition to the story addition and the ability to play in a third person (view over the shoulder), Resident Evil Village will receive RE:Verse – a multiplayer mode in which four heroes will be able to fight villains using all their abilities.
Interestingly, if you want to look at Ethan’s face in third person mode, he will turn away. But the adult Rose from the supplement will not do this. In the story, she returns to the village to learn more about the past and get rid of magical powers. According to the developers, a significant part of the story will take place in Rose’s head, so you need to prepare for a significant amount of surrealism.
Mercenaries mode updates include playable versions of Chris Redfield, Lady Alsina Dimitrescu, and Karl Heisenberg.
Resident Evil Village Gold Edition with Winters’ Expansion will release on October 28 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X. All Resident Evil Village owners will have access to RE:Verse. Resident Evil Village will also release on Mac and Nintendo Switch on the same day.
