Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
Capcom have announced that the ultimate HD edition of Resident Evil 4 will soon be available for both download on Steam globally and available at retail in Europe. PC gamers will be able to play the groundbreaking survival horror masterpiece in the highest visual fidelity ever with stunning HD running at a smooth 60 frames per second for the first time. Resident Evil 4 will be available on February 28, 2014 for $19.99/€19.99.
Alongside the announcement, the Steam pre-order campaign is already live, which includes a digital soundtrack with more than 60 tracks and a digital artbook for those that purchase early, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Steam Achievements, Steam Cloud, Steam Trading Cards, global leaderboards, and full game controller support and previously released bonus content such as the Separate Ways epilogue are all in place, but the best thing of all is the visual improvements. A complete visual overhaul has been performed to bring this revered title to the highest graphical quality ever. Fully optimized for wide screen, text has been sharpened and textures have been upgraded on characters, backgrounds and in-game objects as well as a big improvement in bringing the engine up to 60fps.
“In Resident Evil 4, special agent Leon S. Kennedy is sent on a mission to rescue the U.S. President’s daughter who has been kidnapped. Finding his way to a rural village in Europe, he faces new threats that are a departure from the traditional lumbering zombie enemies of the earlier installments in the series. Leon battles horrific new creatures infested by a new threat called Las Plagas and faces off against an aggressive group of enemies including mind-controlled villagers that are tied to Los Illuminados, the mysterious cult which is behind the abduction.” – Capcom
To complement the exciting new direction, the game introduced a modernized control scheme, rear third person view and gameplay mechanics which have blazed the trail for subsequent action titles. In short, this really is what a HD re-release should be like, let’s just hope it is as awesome as it sounds!
Thank you Capcom for providing us with this information.
