The Resident Evil 4 Remake announcement was a treat for the franchise fans. Widely considered the best Resident Evil game, the remake will feature everything we loved about RE4 for and possibly more. New information on the ESRB rating site has indicated that the remake will feature in-game purchases, and hinting at a multiplayer mode.
Resident Evil 4 Remake Could Feature Multiplayer
According to the ESRB page, the upcoming Resident Evil 4 Remake will contain in-game purchases. Usually when a game has that it means it’s going to integrate some multiplayer mode. The best example is the previous Resident Evil 3 Remake which has a similar system and a multiplayer mode called Resident Evil Resistance.
It is very possible that Capcom is going in the same route with the RE4 Remake as well. We have also seen multiplayer being a big part of the recent Resident Evil entries as well in the form of Resident Evil 8 including Resident Evil Re: Verse. Another curious part is that the in-game purchases seem to be only on PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, and PlayStation 5 and omit PC completely. It is hard to tell what direction is Capcom going with this one as nothing is official so far. There is neither a confirmation nor a denial so we will have to wait till there is an official word.
Resident Evil 4 is already unarguably the most popular game in the franchise, so fans are really hyped. It took a bit different approach from the first games ending up in the right direction and influencing horror gaming even today. So, if multiplayer turns out to be a part of the game it will be a cherry on top. The RE2 and RE3 remakes were a massive success and if the developers can replicate the formula RE4 Remake will walk the same lines.
Resident Evil 4 Remake could be next year’s biggest launch and we hope Capcom delivers all the hype around it. The game drops on March 24, 2023. It can be currently pre-ordered on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and Series S, and PC.
