Resident Evil 4 is releasing in a month's time and it's safe to say that expectations are very high.
The remakes of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 are a tough act to follow and as a result, fans are simultaneously eager and apprehensive over what will and won't be changed in the beloved game. For one, the game is going to emphasise the horror over the action, which is a significant shift from the original. However, there will be no quick time events in cutscenes, and those in the world have been shaved down to the point where there are "barely any". If you're wanting to pass judgement over the game yourself, then there is an ideal opportunity waiting in the wings.
Check out the latest trailer for the remake here:
Resident Evil 4 will be available for download in a short demo though it's not known when it will go live. Additionally, this will be the case for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, as it was with Resident Evil Village, and we would definitely recommend writing a reminder to yourself if you're curious about what the remake will offer.
Hirofumi Nakaoka, the art director, recently revealed there will be a lot to look forward to here for familiar players and for new fans to the survival horror series. A new enemy is in fact inspired by scrapped concepts from the original Resident Evil 4, namely a brute with a sledgehammer wearing the skin of a bull as a mask. Gross.
This enemy was necessary to balance out the overall experience of exploring the village and offer a challenge above the shambling masses of infected. And, in combat encounters, Ashley is no longer able to hide from Los Illuminados, with commands to either stay close or stay behind.
