It’s clearly the spookiest time of the year, as notable horror franchises make their way out of the woodwork to pass their time in the dim moonlight.
Resident Evil 4 is the headliner, with the long-rumored remake having been confirmed by Capcom earlier this year, and with a release date set for March 24, 2023. Capcom will give the defining action horror game a redesign in the vein of Resident Evil 2 and 3 remakes, revamping the game with modern graphics and updating gameplay to current standards. Sure, Resi 4 pioneered over-the-shoulder horror gaming, but we’re still a long way from the feel of mid-2000s games in how current games feel to play.
Even with a reputation as strong as Resi 4, the game will have stiff competition in the survival horror genre with The Callisto Project and Dead Space Remake releasing in the coming months. There’s also Silent Hill’s next announcement this week for this stream to contend with.
Before we get to Resi 4, we have this month’s Resident Evil Village Gold Edition release and a bucketful of new DLC content. This will include the Shadows of Rose story expansion which takes a leap forward from the end of the main game and features Ethan’s daughter, Rose, as the protagonist. There’s also a Mercenaries mode expansion, and the game will have a new third-person camera mode.
We worked on Shadows of Rose last month, Nick said: “Shadows of Rose looks like a lot of fun. Since it’s set so far in the future, it’ll be interesting to see how it affects the RE universe as a whole. For now though, it’s good to have more action in the village, with a slightly different take on the survival horror we’re used to.
Resident Evil Village Gold Edition and Shadows of Rose will be released on October 28. Also expect to hear a little more about the RE:Verse multiplayer game, which is also due out at the same time.
