Considered to be among the greatest video games of all time, Capcom is finally set to bring us a Resident Evil 4 remake.

The original game, released in 2004, is credited with not only modernising the franchise but completely redefining the third-person shooter genre.

With the franchise being on a remake kick in recent years, it makes sense that a Resident Evil 4 remake would be next in line.

New Story & Gameplay Trailers

The Resident Evil Showcase just gave us our best look at the Resident Evil 4 Remake so far, with a brand new story trailer and an extended look at the game in action which has left many fans excited for the title.

The remake appears to be taking a similar approach to the Resident Evil 2 Remake with large changes made to the game while still capturing the feel of what made the classic so special.

This is best seen in the gameplay trailer, which shows us a completely different opening to the game up until the village section which resembles the original title a lot more closely but with some twists thrown in to make things more interesting for returning players.

Resident Evil 4 Remake and Resident Evil Village Coming to PSVR2

Another announcement from the latest State of Play Event comes in the form of PSVR ports for both Resident Evil Village and the Resident Evil 4 Remake getting PSVR2 ports. The Resident Evil 4 remake is not the current version of RE4VR currently exclusive to Oculus Quest 2 but a different game entirely version. It's unsure whether or not that version of RE4VR will ever be released on other headsets but given the remake is also getting the VR treatment. It's unlikely.
