Re-experience the world of Racoon City in Capcom’s recreation of their original Resident Evil due to release next year.
Some fans believe that the third person shooter has lost its horror essence over the last two decades of the franchise’s existence, but for those fans who want to experience the game that had originally defined the horror genre for video games, you’ll now have the opportunity.
Play as Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine and take on the terror of the zombie-invested world brought to players at a 60 fps, 1080p display.
Along with new 3D model tech, and options to opt for either the classic 4:3 aspect ratio or the widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, the remastered third person thriller looks to create an even more immersive experience this time around.
Resident Evil will be releasing on PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 4, and Playstation 3 next year.
Capcom hasn’t officially announced anything — nor has Microsoft — but a listing on Xbox.com revealed that Resident Evil Revelations 2 is at least in the works for Capcom.
Resident Evil Revelations began on the Nintendo 3DS, and after gaining popularity on the mobile-gaming platform, it moved to the likes of the Xbox 360, WiiU and Playstation 3. Now, two years after the initial release, we see a glimpse of a sequel coming to at least the Xbox 360 with the game’s box art and a single screenshot being leaked on Xbox.com.
The single screenshot certainly gives off the typical Resident Evil vibes with the dark and bleak setting which should be enough to get fans of the franchise excited. While it isn’t known exactly which consoles it will be coming to (other than the Xbox 360), it’s not too far-reached to say that it will be coming to the new-generation platforms.
Now, given the game is being developed with home-consoles in mind from the start, the quality of the game is sure to take a huge jump over its predecessor with a much greater amount of development resources waiting to be taken advantage of this time around.
No details were able to be grabbed regarding a release date or any of the game’s features/details, but Capcom will certainly formally address the new Resident Evil soon.
The leak comes only a few weeks after Capcom’s official announcement of a remake for the original Resident Evil.
Capcom is returning to the roots of the Resident Evil series with a new remastered version of the original Resident Evil.
It’s been nearly two decades since the release of Resident Evil and twelve years since the release of the remake back in 2002. The incredible presence it gave to the survival-horror genre is certainly not forgotten, and Capcom will be looking to give former fans and newcomers alike an exciting and delightfully creepy experience to follow through.
With incredible resolution improvements, new 3D model tech, and options to opt for either the classic 4:3 aspect ratio or the widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, the remastered third person thriller looks to create an even more immersive experience. For fans that want to keep in touch with the classic roots, the original control scheme will be available to select as well as a new updated control scheme that fits with more contemporary styles.
Get ready to revisit Raccoon City as Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine and take on the terror uncovered within the city.
Coming 2015, the remastered Resident Evil will be available on PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 4, and Playstation 3.
