Capcom gets it, Resident Evil fans. They know that you aren't big fans of the direction of the franchise in recent years. That's not a problem, because Capcom knows what you do love: the original Resident Evil. Since that's just about all that Capcom is 100% on right now, they've gone ahead and announced a new remake of the classic Resident Evil. This time it'll be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Expect it in early 2015.
Some may recall the year 2002, when the original 1996 Resident Evil title was first remade. Think about this before saying, "Oh no, not another remake." It has been twelve years since Resident Evil was last updated. Twelve years! Unlike, say, Tomb Raider or The Last of Us, a Resident Evil HD remaster would practically be an entirely new game. It's this 2002 remake that Capcom is technically remastering, including a toggle that will switch back to those 2002 graphics.
Of course, the original PlayStation version of the game is still the best.
Building on the 2002 edition of Resident Evil, Capcom will upgrade it to 1080p graphics for PC and the latest generation of consoles. 3D models, textures and the whole visual shebang has been upgraded, as well as sound effects with 5.1 surround sound. Gameplay hasn't been altered in any dramatic way, though players can choose to play with the classic tank control scheme or a full analog stick movement scheme.
Note that this is Capcom and not, say Naughty Dog. Even with the upgrades the screenshots for Resident Evil seem to be a tad dated. Still, Chris isn't a steroid freak and zombies are dead and move slowly, so there's not much to complain about overall. Expect Resident Evil to hit PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation in early 2015 for North America and Europe.
