Resident Evil 7/2/3 Getting Next Gen Upgrades, Free For Existing Owners

Like clockwork, new editions of the most recent games are getting their first (but probably not last) ports thanks to new next (current?) gen upgrades later this year. While no release dates have been announced yet, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Resident Evil 2 (2019), and Resident Evil 3 (2020) are being brought to Xbox Series S/X and PlayStation 5 with new visual upgrades to really make them come to life like never before! Along with this, current (last?) gen owners of these titles will get the upgrade for free as a digital download just for booting the game up on those systems, as will PC players.

According to the official press release, the changes we can expect are as follows:

Experience three acclaimed Resident Evil titles like never before when Resident Evil™ 2Resident Evil™ 3 and Resident Evil™ 7 biohazard arrive on PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X|S later this year. Developed using Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine, all three titles will tout cutting-edge features including ray tracing, high frame rate and 3D audio to enhance the immersion of the award-winning experiences. For PlayStation 5 players, all three titles also feature engaging DualSense™ support for Haptic Feedback and Adaptive Triggers.

Players are also hoping for a handful of other changes, like fixing the framerate issue with more distant zombies, and a swap out of Chris’ weird RE7 face for his RE8 face, but that’s a long shot. I’m personally really hoping that the HDR implementation can receive an upgrade as well, as Resident Evil 7 specifically suffers some issues on console, most notably brighter lights. The sky during the game’s opening specifically looks downright trippy. Plus, this is a chance to boost RE7‘s sales even further past its original lifetime goal of 10 million units (which it hit last year)

Again, official release dates have yet to be set, but the upgrades will be dropping sometime later this year, presumably after the release of Resident Evil Village‘s mysterious DLC and the presumably not canceled RE:Verse. We’ll keep you updated!
