Finally after several long years, PC players will get the definitive Resident Evil 4 experience they’ve been waiting for.
Whether it was on the GameCube, PS2, 360, PS3 or Wii, at some point most gamers will experience what many say is the pinnacle of the Resident Evil franchise- Resident Evil 4. Originally a GameCube-exclusive title, RE4 was successful enough to receive a PS2 port along with additional content; the title has since shown up on the Wii, and HD versions have been released on XBLA and PSN. In 2007, Capcom released Resident Evil 4 for the PC, however it was widely viewed as a shoddy product, featuring no keyboard-and-mouse support.
Earlier today, Capcom revealed a trailer for a remastered PC version set to release this February. Resident Evil 4: Ultimate HD Edition features updated high-definition textures, the extra content from the PS2 version, Steam Workshop support, and will run at 60fps:
Resident Evil 4: Ultimate HD Edition releases on 2/28 for $19.99; those who pre-order through Steam or various other online digital distributors will receive a downloadable soundtrack, and “RE4: Digital Archives”.
