Resident Evil 4 comes to PS4, Xbox One next month

Resident Evil 4 will launch on PS4 and Xbox One on August 30, Capcom has announced.

A Capcom Unity blog post has revealed more details about the latest port.

“This current release of Resident Evil 4 on PS4 and Xbox One includes all the bonus content from the original game, as well as additional features that were added in later versions. The mysterious and elusive Ada Wong stars in her own side story, which fills in intriguing story gaps from Leon’s mission. Mercenaries Mode – the addicting evolution of RE3’s bonus mode – is awarded to players who complete the campaign, providing hours of replayability and lets fans play as Wesker, Hunk, and more iconic characters.

“RE4 also boasts some of the most satisfying New Game Plus action ever, allowing players to bring their powerful arsenal, unlocked costumes, and other secret weapons into a fresh playthrough. Want to focus on yourself instead of protecting Ashley? Equip her with the knight armor costume and laugh as enemy’s attempt to attack her or carry her off with futility. Leon’s Chicago Typewriter – an insanely powerful Tommy Gun – also provides a fun power trip if you have enough cash to give the infamous Merchant.”

No price for the game was revealed. Also, nothing within the blog post referred to any sort of graphical improvements for the new-gen entry. Resident Evil 5 and 6’s ports to PS4 and Xbox One didn’t offer much in terms of visual overhauls, so we don’t expect Resi 4 to get much of a makeover, either.

Capcom is currently hard at work on Resident Evil 7, which looks to take the series back to its true survival horror roots as well as offering terrifying virtual reality thanks to PSVR. Having played The Beginning Hour in VR at E3, I can tell you it’s equal parts incredible and also horrifying.
