The remakes of Resident Evils 2 and 3, as well as Resident Evil 7, have gotten free-next gen upgrades for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
Announced at Capcom's Summer Showcase event, the upgrades are available today, and add support for 4K, high frame rate, ray tracing, and 3D audio.
It's a very welcome update for the modern era of Resident Evil. Resident Evil 7 made a huge change for the series with a switch to first-person, and we said it's "the closest a numbered sequel has come to recapturing Resident Evil’s slow, but thrilling and atmospheric adventure game roots in a while," in a 7.7/10 review.
Resident Evil 2 was a hugely successful update to the beloved original. We gave it 9/10, saying it "expertly reanimates the horrifying atmosphere and moments of extreme tension that made the original so revered." We called 2020's similar reworking of Resident Evil 3 "a wonderful continuation of Capcom’s latest remake efforts."
Next up on the remake train is the iconic Resident Evil 4, which will reimagine the original storyline and update the game's classic action approach.
