During a recently organized conference, Capcom shared a lot of interesting updates about Resident Evil.
While fans were expecting next-gen upgrades for Resident Evil 2, 3 and 7 to be launched this year, their unannounced arrival has left them surprised.
The new RE Engine is what the remakes of Resident Evil 2 and 3 will be operating on. The same RE Engine will be used by Resident Evil 7. Now that Xbox Series X | S and PlayStation 5 come armed with next-gen technology, gamers can make good use of many of the advanced mechanisms in the game.
The remakes of Resident Evil 2 and 3 as well as the original Resident Evil 7 can now be played on PS5 and Xbox Series X | S. When you play these games on the consoles, you will see improved frame rates along with the ray-tracing feature. PlayStation 5 has also enabled DualSense support and 3D audio for the games. You can avail of this upgrade at zero cost if you have the original versions of these games on the last-generation systems.
For those who haven’t played these games in the past, it’s a good time to try them out. Though the remake of Resident Evil 4 isn’t expected to come out before 2023, fans can expect a good amount of Resident Evil to be launched at regular intervals in the months to come.
Capcom has officially announced that new content for Resident Evil Village will be released very soon. The gaming publisher has plans to release a Winters Expansion Pack that will feature a brand new story. Players can also look forward to Mercenaries: Additional Orders that will enable them to get into the shoes of Chris Redfield, one of the most famous protagonists in the series.
