Resident Evil Remaster Officially Announced, Coming In 2015, First Details & Screenshots

Capcom today officially announced the rumored remake for Resident Evil on PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and X360. Resident Evil will be available to purchase digitally across North America and Europe in Early 2015, and you can view below its first screenshots.

Using the latest resolution enhancement and 3D model technology, game resolutions and textures have been significantly upgraded, including 1080p support on next-gen consoles, resulting in characters and backgrounds coming to life in greater detail.

Not only will the graphics impress but the tense sound effects have been fully remastered with 5.1 surround support for a greater gaming atmosphere. Players are now able to choose not only between experiencing the terror at the classic 4:3 ratio or a stunning 16:9 widescreen mode but also the type of control scheme they play with.

The classic control scheme remains for fans of the original play style or there’s an alternative scheme where the character moves directly in the direction of the analogue stick, utilizing the standards of the current generation of gaming. Both the control scheme and the display options can be toggled between at any time during gameplay.

Enjoy the screenshots and the video announcement in which Tatsuya Kitabayashi, producer at Capcom Japan, and Yoshiaki  Hirabyashi, also producer at Capcom Japan, officially reveal Resident Evil Remaster!
