Resident Evil 4 Remake

While Resident Evil 4 Remake hasn't been formally announced by Capcom, rumours have been swirling for months. That's no surprise, given the success of the Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 remakes, and 4's enduring popularity. We might hear about it very soon too, and it could look quite different to the original.

According to a new report by fanbyte, Resident Evil 4 Remake will approach the source material a little differently. It won't be a scene-for-scene remake, and will reportedly take inspiration from demo versions of Resident Evil 4.

Those demos were darker, moodier in tone, and only parts of that translated to the final game. For instance, Leon's introductory stroll around the village ended up taking place in the daytime. In the remake, Capcom will set this scene at night.

There will also be story changes too, according to the report. For the remake, the team is looking to expand the 'Assignment: Ada' and 'Separate Ways" segments of the original versions, to create a more substantial side story. Fanbyte's sources couldn't confirm if that would be DLC, or part of the main Resident Evil 4 Remake.

Finally, the report says there are plans in place for an early 2022 reveal, which is like, now. So, hopefully, Capcom reveals this much-anticipated remake in the coming weeks.

Does all of this sound exciting for an RE4 Remake? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
