Resident Evil 4 Ultimate HD Edition Rises on PC
Capcom announced today that the highly acclaimed (and one of my favorite games) Resident Evil 4 would hit PC in the near future.
The new version will feature every bit of content the game has ever had, including the Mercenaries (Score Attack), Assignment Ada, and Separate Ways, the last of which was additional story content included with the PS2 version after the original GameCube release.
The title will release via Steam internationally, with Europe getting a physical release as well. The update will feature cleaned up textures and text, the highest resolution the game has ever run at, and, as a first for any version of the game, itâ€™ll run at 60 frames per second, up from its original 30 fps. Hopefully that doesnâ€™t affect the atmosphere, though itâ€™ll definitely improve the gameplay.
Preordering the game via Steam will yield a digital 60 track soundtrack and art book. Itâ€™ll feature every Steam platform perk, such as Cloud, Leaderboards, Trading Cards, Achievements, and full controller support.
Originally released in 2005, RE4 hit the GameCube to incredible praise. It dropped the series static backgrounds and camera angles for fully rendered scenes and an over the shoulder perspective thatâ€™s been imitated in almost every third-person-shooter since. For better or worse, the Resident Evil series changed forever after RE4.
