Capcom has announced Resident Evil 2 and 3 Remakes and Resident Evil 7 are all coming to Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5.
While Resident Evil 2 and 3 Remakes and Resident Evil 7 are all coming to Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, a release is set for sometime “later this year.” Fans who own the games on Xbox One or PlayStation 4 can upgrade at no extra cost via Xbox Smart Delivery or PS4 to PS5 upgrading, and PC users will get a free performance upgrade.
Capcom notes the next-generation release for all three games will include ray tracing, high frame rate and 3D audio, as well as DualSense support for Haptic Feedback and Adaptive Triggers on PlayStation 5.
Here’s a rundown on all three games:
Resident Evil 2
Based on the original genre-defining masterpiece, Resident Evil 2 has been completely rebuilt from the ground up for a deeper narrative experience. Using Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine, this reimagining of Resident Evil 2 offers a fresh take on the classic survival horror saga with breathtakingly realistic visuals, heart-pounding immersive audio, a new over-the-shoulder camera, and modernized controls on top of gameplay modes from the original game.
Resident Evil 3
Resident Evil 3 tells the story of S.T.A.R.S. member Jill Valentine as she escapes from a crumbling Raccoon City and the relentless Nemesis. Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine combines photorealistic visuals and a modernized control scheme with the series’ intense combat and puzzle solving to deliver the action-packed final chapter of Raccoon City’s collapse.
Resident Evil 7 biohazard
Resident Evil 7 biohazard set a new course for the Resident Evil series when it released, leveraging its roots while opening the door to a truly terrifying horror experience. A dramatic new shift for the series to first-person view in a photorealistic style powered by Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine, Resident Evil 7 biohazard delivers an unprecedented level of immersion that brings the thrilling horror up close and personal.
