Answers to the internet’s big questions about Resident Evil 4 Remake
We’re less than two weeks away from playing Capcom’s glorious repaint of its legendary third-person shooter. Resident Evil 4originally released in 2005. Though breathless questions on sites like Reddit, Quora, and Twitter suggest the remake is still operating from the mysterious shadows, there’s a lot we know for sure.
We have accumulated cinematic trailers And Gameplay Recordings like the surface runoff over the past few months since the game was announced in 2022. Fans are already getting used to it, too the playable demo which was released last week, modding into bananas and a dank, shirtless protagonist Leon S. Kennedy and shit. But people on the Internet can’t go to sleep in good conscience. You need to know more. And that’s okay — I’ll answer nine frequently asked questions RE4 Questions, you just have to keep reading.
When is the Resident Evil 4 remake coming out?
Just start, I understand. March 24th.
What consoles will RE4 be on?
Controversial, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. Not Xbox One. It doesn’t make much sense considering the PS4 compatibility prevents the game from being truly “next-gen” anyway. But we’ll work with that until Capcom announces otherwise.

Are the RE4 Deluxe extras any good? What am I missing in the sold out Collector’s Edition?
The deluxe edition of the remake includes the following downloadable contentaccordingly The resident Evil website:
- “Casual” Leon and Ashley costumes (Leon wears a bomber jacket)
- “Romantic” Leon and Ashley costumes (Leon looks like he’s in it JoJo’s bizarre adventure)
- “Hero” Leon costume and filters (Leon looks like he’s in it The Prince’s Bride; the filter makes the game look like it was generated by Instagram)
- “Villain” Leon costume and filters (You’ll regularly confuse Leon with Criss Angel from 2005; the game is blood red)
- “Sporty” Leon sunglasses (speaks for itself)
- Weapon “Sentinel Nine”.
- Skull Shaker Pistol
- Expansion of the treasure map
- Replaceable original soundtrack
Some buyers of the $250 Collector’s Edition are in order-fulfillment limbo due to recent cancellation by GameStop a “significant number” of pre-orders. But in addition to the Extra DLC Pack content described above, they would have received:
- The game and a steel book case
- A Leon character
- An art book
- A bluntly written “special card”
- A metallic-looking “collector’s box”
- Digital Soundtrack
I personally don’t think either edition is particularly worth your while, but if you’re starting to get jealous of your Deluxe friends, the Extra DLC pack will be available separately when the game launches on March 24th.
The following pre-order bonuses apply to both Deluxe and Collector’s Edition purchases:
- Golden briefcase
- Classic briefcase
- Ammo tag for pistols
- Green herb magic

HP Envy Desktop Bundle
This PC features an RTX 3070 GPU, a 12th Gen Intel i9 processor, 16GB SDRAM and a 1TB SSD, as well as a mouse and keyboard.
These extras can’t be purchased outside of their promotional period as far as I can tell, but aside from being able to type in “attaché” for what I think are the most consecutive times in my life, I don’t. I don’t find them too exciting either. You might enjoy it the game’s inventory system more than me. But can we get an illegal one Resident Evil 4 Preorder weapon?
Some fans of the series call it much more action-packed Resident Evil 4 the least resident Evil game, so in that sense it’s a perfect place to start. Returning characters and the basic, disease-ridden premise make it easy to interact comfortably with the games that came before it, but newcomers don’t need much context to dive in, especially with the remake’s refreshed playstyle and visuals.
The remake will don’t cut content from the original, just modify or add, so in that sense yes. But disagreements are in the details, and fans’ interpretation of the tone, look and feel of the original will decide how “faithful” the game is to them. A case in point was the people deeply unhappy with thick raindrops they saw in a February gameplay trailer. More faithful rain, people demand.
A cool developer misstep resulted in the President’s daughter and companion Ashley taking over some of Leon’s animations in the original game, allowing her to occasionally unleash a teenage girl’s rage and suplex enemies.
I’d love to see this done on purpose, though resident Evil likely to lose WWE Ashley in remake. Some confirmed changes to the companion include no more health bar and a business-casual blazer, both of which I think should feel less like a squeaky, stereotypical damsel in distress.
Changes Ashley’s outfit, removes salacious dialogue, and—sorry, I just have to hold back my vomiting for a moment—upskirts (like Resident Evil 4 VR already done in 2021) an act of the puritanical, liberal Hivemind censorship?!
According to the definition of censorship – “whenever some people succeed in imposing their personal political or moral values on others”, the Says ACLU-Sure I think?!
But I don’t think saying “censorship” is any more appropriate than acknowledging Capcom’s changes as an inevitable part of the remake process, another part of the developer trying to make the game less alienating for modern audiences. You can also play one of them the many new releases the original “uncensored” game instead if it’s really that important to you, or try to think for yourself why you need a morsel of video game pussy so badly.
What can the remake be even better than the original?
Make horny boys cry.
