Capcom to release "ultimate HD" version of 'Resident Evil 4'

It's been nine years since Resident Evil 4 had Leon Kennedy traveling to Europe to rescue the President's daughter from a group of mutated cultists. In that time, this title, which was originally released for the Nintendo Gamecube, has seen release on just about every platform imaginable. It remains the most successful and highly rated entry in the long-running horror franchise, which is why it came as no surprise when Capcom announced the “Ultimate HD Edition” earlier today. This version will make its way to PC via Steam, and looks to be a much better port than the abysmal HD edition that launched for the PS3 and Xbox 360 back in 2011.

Capcom has stated that Resident Evil 4 has been completely overhauled for this new PC version. The game has been reformatted for true widescreen, and will be running at 60 frames-per-second. The textures have also been improved on character models, backgrounds and in-game objects. Those who played the first HD port will remember that textures were a major issue, having become much blockier through the transfer. The game will also feature standard controller support.

This new version of Resident Evil 4 will include the bonus features present in prior releases, including “Separate Ways”. Those who pre-order will receive a digital soundtrack with over 60 tracks of music, as well as a digital archives book, featuring 80 pages of character profiles, concept art and story synopsis. The game is scheduled to release on February 27th, and is priced at a modest $19.99.
