As reported by PlayStation Lifestyle on Wednesday, August 6, the recently announced Resident Evil: Remastered has been confirmed to run at 30 frames per second on both Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PlayStation 4.
Not only that, but the game will also run at 30 frames per second across last-gen consoles–PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. On the other hand, Resident Evil: Remastered will run at 1080p on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and at 720p on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
“ If you thought the remake looked good, wait until you see the HD version! ” Said Capcom, the game’s publisher, in a recent statement, according to PlayStation Lifestyle. “ This is the game that defined the survival-horror genre and launched a franchise that has sold over 61 million copies.
The original Resident Evil was released in 1996, and the remake arrived in 2002. The remake was built from scratch by the same creators and was considered a masterpiece, ” Capcom continued. “ Now, over a decade later, and with modern technology we can make the scares even more real in terms of both graphics and sound. The interface has also been updated to meet today’s standards.
But don’t worry, we made sure not to change anything that made the original the classic that it is. You don’t mess with a masterpiece, after all, ” the publisher added .
A list of enhancements that remastered Resident Evil will feature have been detailed below, courtesy of PlayStation Lifestyle.
The environments come alive with detail thanks to resolution upgrades and non-static 3D models.
Post-processing effects like Bloom filters, which were not easy to do at the time of the original release, have been added to make the HD graphics even more realistic. The original game called this technique “video backgrounds.” We recorded the backgrounds themselves as videos to create realism that couldn’t be rendered in real time with the technology of the time.
You can play in the original 4:3 screen ratio as well as 16:9 widescreen. CG cutscene movies also support the new widescreen ratio.
In widescreen mode, the screen will scroll. The parts of the screen that get cut off on the top and bottom will scroll into view automatically depending on the character’s position (you can switch the display mode during gameplay in real time).
The audio has been remastered to increase the sampling rate, and of course 5.1ch output is also now supported.
You can play using the original control scheme or an alternate control scheme that lets you just push the analog stick to move in the direction you want to go. You can switch the control scheme during gameplay in real time .
Resident Evil: Remastered is slated to release digitally in early 2015 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. PC specs have yet to be revealed. We’ll bring you more news on Resident Evil: Remastered should further information reach our ears.
