Capcom has announced that it be launching a remastered version of the original Resident Evil for PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
This new version will benefit from 1080p visuals for the new generations consoles and 720p for last-gen consoles, and 5.1 surround support. A new scrolling camera, an analogue control scheme, post-processing effects, and the possibility to choose between the original 4:3 screen ratio and 16:9 widescreen are some of the innovations of this remaster.
According to Resident Evil's development team, the "base for this HD version is the remake from 2002 which was inspired by the original game that was released in 1996. We wanted to keep the remake's feeling and atmosphere while producing an HD experience for modern systems."
"To summarize, our goal was to make an HD version that still plays like the remake."
The game is expected to be available on all platforms in early 2015. The game's price has yet to be revealed.
