Many new announcements were made at Sony Computer Entertainment’s Pre-Tokyo Game Show in Japan yesterday, but at the same time, many previously announced titles also had their chance to shine on stage with new trailers. The upcoming “definitive edition” of 1996 survival-horror game Resident Evil from Capcom was one of those titles.
To be released on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox360, Xbox One and PC video game platforms from early-2015, this HD remake of Resident Evil will provide fans access to the game which started the franchise off, with improved visuals (Including 16:9 widescreen), audio and more.
The intense horror fans first experienced with the release of the original Resident Evil is back. Taking place in the now notorious Raccoon City, players choose to take on the role of either S.T.A.R.S. (Special Tactics and Rescue Service) team member Chris Redfield or Jill Valentine who have been sent into the city to find the missing Bravo team. When the team is suddenly attacked by a ferocious group of mutated dogs, desperate for an escape they take shelter in the Mansion, but will they ever get out alive again? Players will need to be brave as they adventure through the dark, enclosed spaces searching out the horrors that await them. With limited ammo and survival items available gamers will need to keep their wits about them to survive the various traps and puzzles that greet them at every stage.
