Resident Evil 4 is considered by many to be one of the best games of all time, especially in the survival horror genre. It was released in 2005 but still has a passionate fanbase who continue to create mods despite the game’s age. After the success of Capcom’s Resident Evil 2 remake, some fans wondered if or when Resident Evil 4 would get the same treatment. A remake of the game has been rumored for some time, and now details about it have leaked.
Big Changes are on the way for this Survival Horror Classic
According to a report from Fanbyte’s Imran Khan, this remake will not try to recreate every scene from the original game. The setting will be slightly altered. Instead of the opening section in the village taking place during the day, it will instead occur at night. This is a part of Capcom’s attempt at making the game more serious and scary rather than the goofy, campy tone of the original.
The new direction is being compared to the original gameplay demos, which showed the game having a darker, creepier atmosphere that saw Leon navigating a castle filled with horror elements. Capcom will also be expanding upon the bonus campaigns featured in the original releases of Resident Evil 4.
Assignment: Ada and Separate Ways were bonus campaigns that didn’t really connect to one another, but Capcom wants to change that by combining the two with this remake. This will create one bonus campaign that ties in appropriately with the game’s main campaign. The game is still being developed at the moment, but the company wants to reveal it this year. Just remember to take this all with a grain of salt, as Capcom themselves has not officially confirmed the remake and any details about it.
