Resident Evil 1 Remaster to Hit Consoles in 2015!

If you’re a fan of horror games, chances are you’ve played the “Holy Grail” of classic survival horror – Resident Evil.

If you haven’t played it, or happen to absolutely love the game, today is a great day for you.

Capcom has announced a 1080p (where possible) remaster of the original Resident Evil game for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and PC, launching early 2015 as a digital download.

Capcom says:

“Using the latest resolution enhancement and 3D model technology, game resolutions and textures have been significantly upgraded, including 1080p support on next-gen consoles, resulting in characters and backgrounds coming to life in greater detail than ever seen before in Resident Evil.

Not only will the graphics impress but the tense sound effects have been fully remastered with 5.1 surround support for a greater gaming atmosphere. Players are now able to choose not only between experiencing the terror at the classic 4:3 ratio or a stunning 16:9 widescreen mode but also the type of control scheme they play with.

The classic control scheme remains for fans of the original play style or there’s an alternative scheme where the character moves directly in the direction of the analogue stick, utilizing the standards of the current generation of gaming. Both the control scheme and the display options can be toggled between at any time during gameplay.
