Recently Capcom announced that a Resident Evil trilogy is being upgraded from the last generation releases to take advantage of the newer hardware.
This Resident Evil trilogy consists of the debut of Ethan Winters in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. This was launched just over five years ago in January 2017. We also see the remake of Resident Evil 2 from January 2019 and the remake of Resident Evil 3 the following year in March 2020. Players will have to wait to hear details of what the upgrades will offer but 4k 60 FPS and ray tracing are possible options.
Resident Evil Trilogy Upgrades
The official Twitter account for the franchise posted some more information earlier today. This offers good news for those moving from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 or Xbox One to Xbox Series X/S. No doubt those transferring over will have saved game data and this carries over to the upgraded versions. How this is done yet we don’t know. It is likely Xbox won’t require anything on our end. PlayStation titles have had different methods for data transfer.
Resident Evil 7 also had DLC and this was also part of the game’s Gold Edition. And more good news for those upgrading later this year. Its been confirmed by Capcom that the “DLC that comes with Resident Evil 7 Gold Edition will transfer over, as well!”. So will you be interested in jumping back into any of these? It will be interesting to see exactly how they change.
