Resident Evil being remastered for PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360


Capcom has announced that the original Resident Evil is being remastered for a digital release in 2015 on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.


The game will be based on the Gamecube version, will run at 1080p/30fps on PS4 and Xbox One and 720p/30fps on PS3 and Xbox 360. You'll be able to choose between playing the game in its classic 4:3 ratio or in 16:9 widescreen, and have a choice of control styles.

Here's some of the official blurb from Capcom

"Using the latest resolution enhancement and 3D model technology, game resolutions and textures have been significantly upgraded, including 1080p support on next-gen consoles, resulting in characters and backgrounds coming to life in greater detail than ever seen before in Resident Evil. Not only will the graphics impress but the tense sound effects have been fully remastered with 5.1 surround support for a greater gaming atmosphere. Players are now able to choose not only between experiencing the terror at the classic 4:3 ratio or a stunning 16:9 widescreen mode but also the type of control scheme they play with. The classic control scheme remains for fans of the original play style or there’s an alternative scheme where the character moves directly in the direction of the analogue stick, utilizing the standards of the current generation of gaming. Both the control scheme and the display options can be toggled between at any time during gameplay. "

I'm glad that I'll finally be able to change the control scheme. That has always been my biggest gripe with the series. I just couldn't get used to the controls.

Cool, shame there's no Wii U release considering it's a Gamecube game getting polished up.

Wii U being the only console left out of this release is pretty ironic.

Yawn! yet another old game being brung to newer consoles! seems like this is what gaming has become and it isn't good enough. Fuck these big companies i will no longer be supporting them that's for sure.

I'm all for remastering classic games so the younger generation can play them (I played the Gamecube version first) but it seems like this is becoming the main focus lately

I would have bought that since I have yet to play it cos I refuse to but the DLC for the true ending

So Joe are you saying that there is no game you would buy a remastered version of?

He would buy a Gears Trilogy

"but it seems like this is becoming the main focus lately" - A quick look at release schedules shows only a handful of remastered titles vs a very large number of new releases, so... not really?
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

That we know about. It isn't a long short to expect Uncharted Trilogy, Gears Trilogy, Borderlands Trilogy (Pre-sequel), Bioshock Trilogy, Mass Effect Trilogy, Killzone Trilogy, & Resistance Trilogy to be in the planning stages (Kay, last one is a long shot)

It not just even for the new generation there were tons of HD releases for the 360 and PS3 so I dont see why it would be any different now. People will always want to play their favourite games looking better
PrometheusFan's avatar
PrometheusFan 2 years ago
Presumption then? Thing is, even if all of those end up being real (Which is unlikely) these releases would still very much be in the minority when stacked against newer titles that will also be releasing. That's not a 'main focus' by any stretch of the imagination.

Maybe I shouldn't have used that exact wording but I really don't see the need for the "Remasters" Just release the damn game in its original form (In the case of REmake, in its post-original form)

& Uncharted Trilogy, Gears Trilogy, Bioshock Trilogy, & Mass Effect Trilogy aren't unlikely at all

There were HD remasters for Xbox 360, but not until it was flooded with new games after years and years. The remasters are sticking out like a sore thumb for PS4/Xbox ONE as they are fresh starts. This month on PS4 being released at ShopTo is Diablo 3 Evil edition, Metro Redux, Last of Us, Madden and Plants vs Zombies, so that is 2.5 old games (diablo 3 is half remaster and half new with the expansion) remastered vs 2 new games. Xbox 360 has more new games with Risen 3, Sacred 3 and Tropico 5

im loving this news, love the first res evils, would have preferred a collection of remasters, especially 2 and nemesis, would love an entirely new res evil story with the old style controls, just tweaked a bit for responsiveness
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

You make a good point Tony, but then again no one want to play Risen 3, Sacred 3 and Tropico 5
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 2 years ago
I am getting all those though, although Sacred 3 will be gotten after a price drop, maybe the same for Risen 3 if it is not a Risen game, and I may get Tropico 5 on PS4 if it is as good or better than PC or wait for a steam sale. Anyway, there are plenty games on PS3/360 if no one wants them, unlike PS4/Xbox ONE. It is showing a sad state of affairs - new games are crap, and people rather replay old games remastered.

Risen is a good series but not at full price

@zomb gears of war trilogy and i'd be reluctant at that! i'd rather devs put time into making new games instead of 'remastering' old games. That's why from now on i'm not spending more than £10 for a new game. that includes all the games ive been looking forward to.. fifa.. shadows of mordor.. sick of the way the gaming industry is going.

"This month on PS4 being released at ShopTo is Diablo 3 Evil edition, Metro Redux, Last of Us, Madden and Plants vs Zombies, so that is 2.5 old games" - Madden isn't an "old game" and neither is Plants vs Zombies, as the PS4 version of that is only releasing now because Microsoft paid EA for six months "exclusivity" on it, as you well know. Pickings are even slimmer on Xbox One this month as well I notice.

Kevin you knob jockey try comparing the first full years of the xbox 360 console being out and the first full year of the xbox one. Already the xbox one has released more rehashed games than the xbox 360 did in the first year. Seriously shut the fuck up and get back to gaf where you belong with all the other knob jockeys living in a fantasy world.

"Uncharted Trilogy, Gears Trilogy, Bioshock Trilogy, & Mass Effect Trilogy aren't unlikely at all" - Uncharted and Gears maybe, but Bioshock? With Irrational dead it's far from a sure thing and I can't see EA giving people 3 games for one price on new consoles anytime soon, not when they can barely put together a trailer for new games these days.

Doesn't matter that Irrational is gone. If there is money to be made 2K will be there (Ala: Bioshock 2)

I must say that you truly are a vile little man who is seemingly incapable of anything other than regurgitating other people's opinions. Get a grip and stop to consider for 5 seconds that you're seriously hurling abuse at someone for having a different opinion from yours on video games you insufferable manchild.

You're so arrogant and pessimistic it's untrue. I'm actually suprised that no one has cracked like this at you before in the past.

You're right, I disagreed with someone on how abundant the number of re-released video games is... I'm clearly asking for every homophobic slur that comes my way.

Kevins not said anything wrong here. A few remakes so far this year. Nobody was complaining when Resi Evil was remade on DS or DMC on PS3 etc. I would understand if TLOU remastered was stopping Naughty Dog from creating other games but they aren't. Metro Redux, Diablo may be remakes coming out this month but considering July and August are usually quiet, then how many remakes to full releases are out in the next 6 months? Very little.

I was complaining when Deadly Silence was released since they cut a lot of content
