Three Resident Evil Games Receive New-Gen Updates
Capcom announced as part of its recent showcase that Resident Evil 7 and the remakes for Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 would be receiving new-gen updates. Those updates are available now on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S, and they're free for those who already own any of the games. Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 retail for $39.99, while Resident Evil 7 is $19.99.
All versions now support 4K resolution, increased framerates, and ray tracing. Each game takes advantage of the faster loading times provided by the PS5 and Series X|S, and the PlayStation 5 versions support 3D audio, as well as haptic feedback and adaptive triggers via the DualSense.
The news comes alongside the announcement of Resident Evil Village Gold Edition and the Winters' Expansion coming in October 2022, adding a new story arc, third-person mode, and new content to Mercenaries. Capcom also showed off new footage for the Resident Evil 4 remake, coming in 2023, and provided an update on RE:Verse.
