It’s only a matter of time before Capcom announces a remake of Resident Evil 4. But if you’re afraid that this remake might end, you still have something to look forward to in 2022. Namely, it was announced that after many years of development, the modification of the Resident Evil 4 HD Project for PC will finally be completed.
The work of Albert Marin will make the ultimate version of Resident Evil 4 in its original release on February 2, 2022. More specifically, it will correct several problems and omissions created in remastering Resident Evil 4 for PC (and other platforms). Not only will the PC version get higher-resolution textures, but a whole host of things will be fixed and a whole host of options added.
Here's what Resident Evil 4 HD Project version 1.0 will bring:
- refined character models and a higher resolution environment
- the cutscene in Full HD quality (original were 512 × 336 resolutions)
- the Depth of Field effect that was present in the Gamecube version and was omitted from later ports and remasters
- the option to adjust the FoV at will
- real support for ultrawide resolutions (21: 9)
- option to run in a borderless-window mode
- correction of difficult QTE scenes when played at 60 fps
- the improved game performance on older hardware
All of this applies to the entire game, and that includes the main campaign, the Separate Ways campaign with Ada Wong, and the Mercenaries mode. The modification will be free for all Resident Evil 4 owners on PC.
