During the latest Resident Evil Showcase, Capcom revealed new gameplay footage from the upcoming Resident Evil 4 remake. In it, we see Leon Kennedy exploring the forest before coming across a seemingly abandoned shack. He then encounters an enemy in the basement, after which he is thrown out of a window.
More gameplay is then shown, this time rather action-focused, as a group of villagers attack Leon in the village, similar to how they do in the opening moments of the original game. We see Leon fight several distraught villagers with weapons and melee finishers before being attacked by a man with a chainsaw and a sack over his head. Luckily, Leon can parry his attacks with a knife. The merchant also returns and players can exchange rare gems for money.
A new story trailer has also been released, showcasing new looks for classic characters like Ada Wong, Ashley Graham, Luis Sera and villains like Salazar.
Resident Evil 4 Remake releases March 24, 2023 for Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, and PC. Capcom has confirmed that the PS4 version will be upgradeable to the digital PS5 version at no additional cost.
