Capcom announced Resident Evil 4 for PlayStation 5 during Sony’s State of Play. The often rumored remake is going to use the core blueprint with some small tweaks here and there.
Capcom Promotion Producer, Edvin Edsö, describes the upcoming remake as follows:
This time, the game is being developed to achieve state-of-the-art quality for a survival horror suitable for 2023, while preserving the essence of the original game. We aim to make the game feel familiar to fans of the series, while also providing a fresh feeling to it. This is being done by reimagining the storyline of the game while keeping the essence of its direction, modernizing the graphics and updating the controls to a modern standard.
The story thus far
Six years have passed since the biological disaster in Racoon City.
Leon S. Kennedy, one of the survivors of the incident, has been recruited as an agent reporting directly to the president.
With the experience of multiple missions on his back, Leon is sent to rescue the kidnapped daughter of the president of the United States.
He tracks her to a secluded European village, where there is something terribly wrong with the villagers.
And the curtain rises on this story of grueling survival horror and rescue.PlayStation Blog
