Resident Evil 4 comes to Steam with visual overhaul, 60fps and more

Jan 21, 2014 // Minish Capcom

Every entertainment medium can claim a handful of groundbreaking works that are worth revisiting over the years. For example, I’ll buy Terminator 2 and Jurassic Park every single time they’re re-released, because each new version (usually!) brings extra refinement and clarity to the overall package.

The same can be said of Resident Evil 4, one of Capcom’s best-selling and highest-rated games. Each time it’s revisited, we get an improved experience retooled for modern machines. Today we’re announcing a brand new version of the game for Steam (and Windows PC in EU) that’ll feature sharper textures, crisper text, a silky smooth 60fps framerate and full Steam support (Achievements, Steam Cloud, Trading Cards, global leaderboards, full game controller support) for $19.99 / €19.99.

RE4 for PC/Steam includes all the stuff you’ve seen in previous iterations (including Separate Ways and subtitles in French, Spanish, Italian, German and Japanese), just in the highest visual quality and smoothest fluidity ever released by Capcom. You can pre-purchase now on Steam to get an 80-page digital archive and the 62-track RE4 OST.

I’ll have a few community activities in the coming weeks centering around RE4, including offering up a sealed chainsaw controller from the good ol’ days:

It’s sealed, in great condition and can’t wait to find a new home. More soon!
