Resident Evil 4 Remake Game Overview
Resident Evil 4 Remake (Biohazard RE:4) is a current-generation console remake of Resident Evil 4 released in 2005 for the PlayStation 2. This modern version is scheduled for release on March 24, 2023, for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and Series S, and Microsoft Windows (Steam).
Resident Evil 4 Remake follows the story of Special Agent Leon S. Kennedy who is sent on a mission to rescue the President of the United States’ daughter Ashley Graham after the latter is abducted by the violent Los Illuminados Cult based in village in Spain.
New Features and Gameplay Mechanics
A new parry action has been added that allows you to counter incoming enemy attacks using a knife. If done successfully, the foe’s attack will be interrupted, preventing you from taking damage. The remake even allows players to perform impressive feats such as parrying hurled projectiles (axes, knives, rocks, etc.) with enough practice and skills.
With good timing, it is also possible to execute a perfect parry which causes the enemy to flinch and be forced into a vulnerable state for a short period. During this time, you can run up to the target and throw out a melee attack to knock them down.
Knife durability is a new mechanic in the game which indicates the condition of Leon’s Combat Knife. As you use the blade to attack, parry, or break free from an enemy’s grab, the weapon loses some of its durability. To restore the Combat Knife to its best condition, you must take it to the Weapons Merchant and have him repair it for a fee.
Failing to maintain the Combat Knife will cause it to break. This nearly-useless state prevents you from using the weapon effectively and makes parries unavailable in battle.
Crouching and Emergency Dodge
New crouch and emergency dodge actions have also been implemented in the remake. Press the ○ button lets you drop down low to the ground which is useful for hiding from view or avoiding attacks that mostly hit the upper body. Crouching can also be done to avoid the Parasite enemy’s sickle throw attack.
Emergency dodge, meanwhile, is an action that has appeared in recent remakes of Resident Evil games. This maneuver gives you an extra option to avoid getting hit and is generally useful for survivability throughout the game.
New enemies not found in the original version of the game are also added in the remake. Among the unfamiliar foes is what appears to be a muscular Ganado wearing a cow’s head as a sort of grotesque mask. This new human enemy also wields a giant hammer and is expected to pose a difficult challenge when encountered during the main story.
New armaments such as the “Sentinel Nine” handgun and the “Skull Shaker” shotgun also appear in the game as bonuses for purchasing the Extra DLC Pack (included in the Resident Evil 4 Remake Digital Deluxe Edition and Collector’s Edition). A submachine that resembles the MP5 has been featured in one of the game’s official trailers as well.
New Merchant Requests
New side missions called Merchant Requests can also be undertaken in the updated version of the game. Clearing these optional quests rewards you with Spinels, a rare type of currency that can be traded with the Weapons Merchant for useful equipment, supplies, and other items.
An item crafting system similar to those that appeared in previous Resident Evil titles has also been added to the remake. Using item recipes purchased at the Weapons Merchant, you will be able to make various healing items, ammunition, explosives, and other consumables from ingredients gathered throughout the game.
New costumes for Leon, Ashley, and other major characters can be accessed in the 2023 version of the game. These include special bonus outfits unlocked for purchasing the Digital Deluxe or Collector’s Edition and those that become available for meeting certain conditions during the main story.
New Trophies and Achievements
The remake also has an updated list of trophies and achievements that set it apart from its source material. There are also new trophies unlocked for meeting certain objectives related to new content in this version of the game.
Japanese Voice Acting
The remake also features new Japanese voice acting that was previously unavailable in the 2005 release on the PlayStation 2. The Japanese cast includes Toshiyuki Morikawa as Leon S. Kennedy, Akari Kito as Ashley Graham, and Kenjiro Tsuda as Luis Serra.
