Capcom hosted the Resident Evil Showcase today and revealed new information, footage, and a release date for Resident Evil 4 remake.

Resident Evil 4 remake will launch on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, and PC on March 24, 2023 and pre-orders are open now. The standard edition is priced at $59.99 and a digital deluxe edition is $69.99. Those who buy the PlayStation 4 version will be able to upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version for free.

There will also be a collector’s edition that contains things like a steelbook and a Leon Kennedy statue but a price wasn’t announced. We also got to see a new trailer and new gameplay footage from the game and it is shaping up really nicely. You can digest all that content below.

Resident Evil 4 joins Leon S. Kennedy six years after his hellish experiences in the biological disaster of Raccoon City. His unmatched resolve caused him to be recruited as an agent reporting directly to the president of the United States. With the experience of multiple missions on his back, Leon is dispatched to rescue the president’s recently kidnapped daughter. Leon tracks her to a secluded European village, however after making first contact he discovers a fervor beyond reason grips the local populace. Resident Evil 4 preserves the essence of the original while using Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine to deliver modernized gameplay, a reimagined storyline, and vividly detailed graphics.

Now, this reimagined tale of survival in the face of overwhelming terror returns to deliver a visually stunning modern gaming experience that is true to the promise of the original release. Many team members from the production of 2019’s top-selling and critically acclaimed Resident Evil 2 also make their return to delve deeper into the essence of Resident Evil 4. Fans and newcomers alike can revel in both the new and familiar, as RE Engine heightens the design and creative direction of the original game.
