Resident Evil 4 Remake gets microtransaction DLC you just don’t need

These weapon tickets make unlocking certain upgrades easier, for a price. Capcom has added some pointless microtransactions to Resident Evil 4 Remake that just let you unlock any weapon’s exclusive upgrade instantly. It’s pretty obvious Resident Evil 4 Remake isn’t a live service title. Nor is it an online game, or the like. So why it’s just received some DLC that serves no purpose other than unlocking a better version of your weapons earlier than normal is anyone’s guess (cough, we all know the reason, cough). Each weapon in Resident Evil 4 Remake has a unique upgrade that massively improves…

Resident Evil 4 Remake datamine points towards Separate Ways DLC

Plus, we might now know who’s playable in the upcoming Mercenaries mode. Some datamines for Resident Evil 4 Remake seem to suggest that Separate Ways DLC might be on the way, as well as showing off who’s playable in the upcoming Mercenaries mode. Resident Evil 4 Remake released last week, and already people are datamining the game to find out what’s coming next. As spotted by Eurogamer, and shared on Twitter by Resident Evil Central, dataminer Gosetsu found a folder titled “_anotherorder,” as well as files related to the recent Chainsaw demo and the upcoming Mercenaries mode. For context, in…

Resident Evil 4 Remake sets concurrent franchise record on Steam

Resident Evil 4 Remake is out today, and even with most people still at work, it is already doing well on Steam. According to SteamDB, Resident Evil 4 Remake has 140,240 concurrent users as of press time, and we expect the number to grow over the weekend. Compared to other Resident Evil games on Steam, the remake has set a new concurrent record compared to the previous holder Resident Evil Village with 106,631 users at its peak.

Somehow, the ultra-violent Winnie-the-Pooh horror movie is clearly inspired by Resident Evil 4 – here’s proof

As games come back around to influence film, it’s no surprise that Resi has influenced a horror film – but that doesn’t make it any less weird. Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey is a roaring carnival of witless bullshit. There are things in this movie which defy any sane classification: simply saying them out loud makes you seem as if you’re confessing to some crime or other. At about 15 separate points during the movie, your mind will whisper ‘can everyone else see this, or have I totally snapped? Am I dead?’. In the Silent Hill 2 remake, when James finds…

Resident Evil 4 Remake’s Mercenaries mode will release in April

You’ll need to complete the main game first. Today is the day many of us have been waiting for, with Resident Evil 4 Remake now being out in the wilderness and available to play! Capcom has shared a shiny new launch trailer with fans, which also details when we can expect RE4’s Mercenaries mode to become available. Catch the Resident Evil launch trailer right here. For those not familiar with Mercenaries, it’s a game mode that’s often present in Resident Evil titles, which has you facing off against a horde. The goal? To kill as many gruesome enemies as possible…

Resident Evil 4 remake: Steam Deck performance and best settings

The Resident Evil 4 remake is a mostly cool runner on desktops, and good news if you’re recently picked up a certain handheld PC in the sales: its Steam Deck performance is alright too. Maybe not to the battery-sipping, framerate-abundant extent of the very best Steam Deck games, but with the right settings, nu-Resi 4 can keep its burlap sacked head well above 30fps even in its most visually demanding scenes.

Episode 3 of Resident Evil 4 Remake’s anime spin-off is here, and it can’t get much better

Dr. Salvador’s time to shine. As we prepare for the release of Resident Evil 4 Remake, Capcom has been treating us to an adorably bizarre anime spin-off of Leon and Ashley’s adventure, called ‘Leon and the Mysterious Village.’ The third episode in the series, which comes from the talented folk at Nippon Animation, is titled “Help us, Old Man” and runs at just a few seconds longer than prior episodes, lasting one minute and two seconds. That said, these episodes are truly short but sweet, and fans – including myself – have been eager for more since the spin-off’s conception…

Resident Evil 4 Remake’s anime spin-off gets a second episode

A promotional masterpiece. As we all prepare for the release of Resident Evil 4 Remake on Friday, Capcom is gearing us up with an array of short, minute-long anime episodes promoting the game. Today, we were privy to a second episode! The first episode of the show — coined ‘Leon and the Mysterious Village’ — debuted just a few days ago. The episode showed off a very confused Leon’s descent into the village, and later, his ascent into the stars with a bunch of Colmillos as he dies. It was bizarre, but honestly, very wholesome. Check out Episode 2 of…

Check out Resident Evil 4 Remake’s short but sweet anime trailer

It’s an awfully cute take on Resident Evil 4. It’s safe to say that Capcom’s marketing for Resident Evil 4 Remake is well under way. After a horde of stellar reviews were shared last week, declaring the remake a complete success (our own 5/5 review included), Capcom has more under its sleeve to get players excited. Capcom, of course, knows full well the chokehold that Resident Evil 4 has over its fans, both old and new. As such, a short, but sweet anime trailer for the game has been released showing off fan-favourite characters in a more charming, whimsical scenario…

Resident Evil 4 remake review: an exceptional return to one of the greatest action games of all time

In the run-up to its original 2005 release, Capcom was refreshingly – and publicly – clear about their intentions for Resident Evil 4. Feeling that the classic top-down formula that had seen the series thrive during the 90s had grown stale, this follow-up was to be a total reinvention of survival horror as a concept. Something fresh. Dynamic. Exciting. The slate was wiped completely clean, and from that blank canvas, something exceptional was created. A game that not only redefined the franchise, but third-person action games as a whole. For eighteen tumultuous years, Capcom has tried to surpass the success…

Resident Evil 4 Remake review: A bolder, Leon-hearted version of a classic, refined in every way

“This time, it can be different.” And that’s okay. In fact, it’s more than OK. Resident Evil 4 Remake has finally caught up with Leon. Just as the Resi 4 protagonist is all grown up when we first see him in the 2005 original, Capcom has finally made a game that reflects how much he’s matured – but that doesn’t mean the camp nature of the original cult classic is lost; it’s merely evolved to be more in line with the series’ tone. The original Resident Evil 4 nudged the series down a more action-oriented path, and after teasing the…

Resident Evil 4 remake’s promised demo might be arriving tonight after Capcom’s Spotlight stream

When Capcom showed off their latest Resident Evil 4 remake trailer the other week, they promised a playable demo would be coming ahead of the game’s launch on March 24th. At the time, no date was given for when the demo might be arriving, but thanks to some seemingly early Twitch ads doing the rounds today, it would appear that Resi 4 demo will be coming later today – presumably once Capcom’s Spotlight Showcase stream has wrapped up this evening. Here’s hoping it will also be available on PC, and not just PlayStation this time. Read more
