Capcom announced the next-gen upgrades for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Resident Evil 2 Remake, and Resident Evil 3 Remake are now available.
News that had been announced months ago, however they are all available now on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. Owners of PS4 will be able to get free upgrades to the next gen versions, the same goes for those who owned the Xbox One editions of the games.
The next-gen upgrades for these games will add many features such as 4K resolution, Ray Tracing, and 3D audio for additional immersion to the horror. The PC versions will be getting these upgrades as well.
It’s worth noting Capcom have posted on Steam that the minimum system requirements will increase for RE 2 Remake. Which may cause some players issues should they update their game to the latest patches.
These changes should be quite welcome for most fans though. Given recent reports, RE 7 has sold over 10 million copies. Both remakes have also seen major success in sales with 2 getting over 9 million and 3 getting over 5 million.
Here’s a rundown of all three games:
