Resident Evil 4 remake is coming to PS4, but seemingly not Xbox One

During Capcom’s Tokyo Game Show presentation, the company gave us another look at Resident Evil Village: Gold Edition and announced a new platform for Resident Evil 4‘s remake. Capcom confirmed that the upcoming Resident Evil 4 remake is coming to PlayStation 4.

The game was revealed at a PlayStation State of Play presentation earlier this year, but was only confirmed for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. Interestingly, Capcom noted that the game was coming to PS4 but did not mention Microsoft’s last-gen system, the Xbox One. We reached out to Capcom and asked about a potential Xbox One version, but a Capcom representative told Digital Trends that “Capcom hasn’t made any other statements about platforms for RE4.”

The Shadows of Rose DLC takes place 16 years after the events of Resident Evil Village. It follows Rose, who is Village protagonist Ethan Winters’s daughter. The DLC will be in third-person, which is a departure from the base game’s first-person perspective. Rose has special ice powers that she can use to freeze her enemies. The Winters’ expansion is part of Resident Evil Village: Gold Edition, which arrives on October 28 and includes the Shadows of Rose story DLC, the new content for Mercenaries mode, and a third-person mode for the base game.

Alongside the expansion’s release comes the launch of Resident Evil Village Gold Edition, which bundles all of the game’s content and adds a wolf hoodie costume for Rose. Resident Evil Village is also releasing on Nintendo Switch via a cloud version on the same day, with the Winters’ expansion coming to the platform on December 2. Capcom also showed off some gameplay of Resident Evil Village‘s other modes and new platforms. New stages and characters were already announced for Mercenaries mode, but we got a first look at Lady Dimitrescu and Heisenberg’s gameplay from a first-person perspective, as well as a short teaser of the base game on PlayStation VR2.

The game can also be played on Macs with M1 and M2 chips, which was previously announced at WWDC earlier this year.

You can play as Resident Evil 4’s Leon Kennedy in Tekken 8 … sort of
Leon Kennedy in Tekken 8

Tekken 8 has only been out for a few days, but folks on the internet have already found a way to make some incredibly convincing recreations of some of their favorite characters from other properties. Perhaps one of the most impressive seen so far is a version of Leon Kennedy that closely resembles his appearance in the recent Resident Evil 4 remake, giving players an opportunity to enter the King of Iron Fist Tournament as a zombie-slaying brawler ... well, sort of.

As shown by YouTube creator Dan Allen Gaming, it's entirely possible to replicate Leon Kennedy's look to quite a shocking level using Tekken 8's detailed character customization features. Everything from his iconic leather bomber jacket to his quintessential '90s haircut is nailed perfectly here by using popular fighter Lars as a base for the customization due to his similarity to Leon in frame and stature.

Xbox Game Pass kicks off 2024 by adding an all-time great remake
Mr.X pulling open a door in Resident Evil 2.

The new year has just begun, and Microsoft has announced the first group of games coming to Xbox Game Pass this year. Throughout the first half of January, Microsoft's game subscription service is set to receive eight new games. Most notably, Capcom's excellent Resident Evil 2 remake from 2019 joins Xbox Game Pass on January 16.

First released nearly five years ago on January 25, 2019, Resident Evil 2 set a new standard for horror remakes. It completely reimagined the original fixed-camera PlayStation 1 horror game as a tense third-person shooter with an intimate over-the-shoulder camera, while still retaining the core elements that made the original great. The influence of Resident Evil 2's remake can be felt not just in subsequent Resident Evil games, but in titles from other developers, like Alan Wake 2, Dead Space, and the upcoming Alone in the Dark remake.

Resident Evil 4, Death Stranding barely miss a step on iPhone and iPad
El Gigante raises its foot over Leon in Resident Evil 4.

Just two months ago, I had my mind blown when I saw Resident Evil Village running on an iPad. While I expected a very compromised experience, I was shocked when I saw how the horror game barely lost a step on the device. I pushed its settings to their limits and still came out with a fairly smooth experience capable of hitting high frame rates. Suddenly, the idea of playing a console quality game entirely on a mobile device didn’t seem like a far-fetched idea.

That was an impressive feat, but Resident Evil Village was built for the PS4 generation. The bigger test would come from more technically ambitious games that are either exclusive to new consoles or rebuilt with them in mind. I wouldn’t have to wait long to see that in action. At a recent Apple gaming showcase, I went hands-on with both Death Stranding: Director’s Cut and Resident Evil 4 running on a bevy of Apple devices, from the iPhone 15 Pro to a Mac Mini.
