Classic Resident Evil Coming to Modern Day Consoles
Capcom has announced that Resident Evil is coming to the current generation. Fans can digitally download a remastered version of the original game for Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, or PC in early 2015. If you're counting, I believe this is the third time that the game has been released. It originally debuted in 1996 before being “remade” in 2002 with some new visuals, gameplay elements, and story details. This upcoming release is a tweak on the 2002 release.
The game takes place in the now infamous Raccoon City where players choose to take on the role of either S.T.A.R.S. (Special Tactics and Rescue Service) team member Chris Redfield or Jill Valentine. They've been sent into the city to find the missing Bravo team when they're suddenly attacked by a group of mutated dogs. After finding shelter in the Mansion, the team members must survive an onslaught of zombies, giant snakes, and much more while making their way through traps and puzzles scattered throughout the building.
This version of Resident Evil has been upgraded significantly using the latest resolution enhancement and 3D model technology including 1080p support on next-gen consoles. The characters and backgrounds can now be seen in greater detail than ever before. The audio has also been fully remastered with 5.1 surround support and you can choose between fullscreen (classic) or widescreen mode.
No specific release date has been set for Resident Evil but you can expect it in early 2015.
