Capcom is bringing Resident Evil 2 Remake, 3 Remake, and 7 to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series later this year, with free upgrades for existing owners.

The three games will receive visual enhancements for the new consoles, and those who already own them on PS4 and Xbox One will receive free digital upgrades.

Capcom also confirmed that PC versions of the games will receive upgrade patches at the same time as the PS5 and Xbox Series versions are released.

Each of the three titles will be updated to include ray tracing, high frame rate, and 3D audio. The PS5 versions will also utilise the DualSense controller’s Haptic Feedback and Adaptive Triggers.

This means that four out of the eight mainline Resident Evil games will be officially available on Sony and Microsoft’s next-generation hardware without having to use backwards compatibility.

Resident Evil 7, which IGN said was good, is, oddly, the oldest of the three games having released in 2017, while Resident Evil 2 and 3 were released in 2019 and 2020 respectively as remakes of the original PlayStation games, both of which IGN said were amazing.

They’ll join the horror franchise’s latest, Resident Evil Village, on the PS5 and Xbox Series, which we called “a genuinely engrossing and increasingly combat-heavy continuation of the Ethan Winters story” and said was “great”.

A remake of Resident Evil 4 has also been rumoured for years that will apparently focus more on the game’s horror elements instead of just being a scene-by-scene redo of the original.
