Resident Evil Origins Collection pairs up survival horror classics in January 2016

Capcom today announced Resident Evil Origins Collection, an upcoming retail twin-pack for consoles and PC platforms featuring HD remastered versions of the original Resident Evil and series prequel Resident Evil 0.

Capcom additionally revealed that the updated version of Resident Evil 0 will include “Wesker Mode,” an all-new gameplay mode featuring series antagonist Albert Wesker in a playable role.

Resident Evil Origins Collection bundles Resident Evil: HD Remaster and the upcoming Resident Evil 0: HD Remaster in a single retail package for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PCs priced at $40. Digital versions of Resident Evil: HD Remaster and Resident Evil 0: HD Remaster will also be available via Xbox Live, the PlayStation Network, and Steam for $20 apiece.

Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 ports of Resident Evil 0: HD Remaster are also in the works, though an equivalent Origins Collection bundle was not announced for either platform. Both platforms previously hosted versions of this year’s series spinoff Resident Evil Revelations 2, available digitally in a series of episodic releases and at retail.

Resident Evil 0‘s announced Wesker Mode swaps out one of the game’s playable characters, Billy Coen, with criminal mastermind and S.T.A.R.S. squad traitor Albert Wesker, putting a new spin on the game’s teamwork-focused campaign. Wesker brings his own unique abilities into battle, equipping players with powers and attacks not seen in previously released versions of the game.

The positive critical and commercial reception of Resident Evil: HD Remaster earlier this year prompted Capcom to announce a similar upgrade for Resident Evil 0, and spurred fan interest in a remake for the 1998’s Resident Evil 2. After an extended social media campaign gauging fan interest, a Resident Evil 2 remake was subsequently pitched and greenlit at Capcom, and has since entered production.

PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions of Resident Evil Origins Collection will hit retail on January 19, 2016.
