Capcom Shows Resident Evil 4 Remake Gameplay Footage

As you can see, Resident Evil 4 will utilise a third-person over the shoulder perspective and looks to be more survival horror-oriented than the original. 

The remake of Resident Evil 4 was rumoured to be in the making for a long time, but it was officially revealed last week during the Sony State of Play. In it, we were treated to a short trailer that showed off some familiar sights to anyone who’s played the original.

Resident Evil 4 utilises the RE Engine, Capcom’s proprietary game engine that has been used for a large amount of its titles since 2017.

It will be the fourth remake in the series now, after 2002’s Resident Evil, 2019’s Resident Evil 2, and 2020’s Resident Evil 3. Now if someone could convince Capcom to remake Code Vernonica, I’d be all set.
