Game developer Capcom is back with a gloomy remake of one of the most celebrated survival horror games ever made, Resident Evil 4.
Announcing new details and gameplay at a showcase event in October 2022, the latest reimagining of RE4 has never looked better – or more horrifying.
Six years after the Racoon City outbreak, Leon Kennedy has graduated from rookie cop to special agent, tasked with rescuing the POTUS’s daughter, Ashley, from a small rural village now infected by a virus known as “Las Plagas”.
The original 2005 release was a drastic change to the resident Evil formula that took the series into a more action-oriented genre, with explosive fights and deadly bosses. Now the remake is upping the ante through the RE engine that made it’s Resident Evil 2 and 3 remakes so popular.
