To celebrate Resident Evil’s 20th anniversary in March, Capcom have announced their intention to release Resident Evil 4, 5, and 6 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The first game debuted in 1996 in Japan under the name Biohazard, an action, adventure, horror fiction video game which focuses on multiple characters and their roles in recurring outbreaks of zombies and other monsters, initially due to the release of the T-virus, a biological weapon created by the Umbrella Corporation.
Resident Evil is an amalgamation of shooter, exploration and puzzle solving, with Resident Evil 4 onwards taking a more third-person shooter approach with fewer puzzles and greater emphasis on gunplay and weapons upgrading.
One of the most loved game franchises to date with memorable characters, interesting plots and scary ass enemies.
Many fans of the franchise enjoying the previous remakes, it makes sense that Capcom are releasing these three games to commemorate the 20 years of Resident Evil.
A statement from Capcom read:
“In March 1996, the world was introduced to the first Resident Evil game, which helped shape survival horror as we know it and has since brought you some of the most loved games of all time. You’ve been able to play through the origins stories that started everything with the recent releases of Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0, and we’ve confirmed that a remake of Resident Evil 2 is on the way. Since then, the series and story have evolved to amp up the action and introduce new epic gaming moments with Resident Evil 4, 5 and 6.”
The three classic horror titles will be rolled out from March, starting with Resident Evil 6, the most recent entry in the series, released for Xbox One and PS4 on March 29, Resident Evil 5 in summer 2016 and Resident Evil 4 in autumn 2016.
The upcoming release will also include all the additional post-launch content from the console version including DLC and all the costume.
All three games will be available for £15.99 each.
