Resident Evil has been back on track since the release of Resident Evil 7 in 2017, with the subsequent releases of Resident Evil 2 Remake and Resident Evil 3 Remake. Well now, you can replay them all over again on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S with enhanced upgrades launching later this year.
Announced by the official Resident Evil Twitter account, Capcom will be releasing enhanced versions of all three games in 2022, which appear to be more than just upping the frame rate and resolution. Although exact features and improvements weren’t mentioned, the tweet does state that they will include “visual enhancements”, which we presume includes better lighting and shadows, and possibly even ray-tracing.
On top of that, if you already own any of the games on PS4 or Xbox One, you will get a free upgrade to the current-gen versions as these upgrades will be entirely new versions of the game, rather than just a simple patch deployed later in the year.
More details will likely come in a few months time, but we can’t help but hope that additional features like DualSense support on PS5 and 3D Audio will also be added as they were implemented so well in Resident Evil Village.
