Resident Evil 4: Gold Edition has been confirmed, and fans now know this new version offers relative to the base game.
The Resident Evil franchise has seen many remakes in the past few years, with the 2005 classic Resident Evil 4 being the latest to receive this treatment. The Resident Evil 4 remake enjoyed acclaim from critics and fans alike and prompted Capcom to confirm that more Resident Evil remakes are on the way. The title won’t be getting a “Game of the Year Edition” re-release after Baldur’s Gate 3 effectively swept the field, but it’s still going to get that treatment in its own way.
More than a month after Metacritic leaked the news with a new page on its database, Capcom has officially revealed the definitive collection for its blockbuster remake. The publisher also gave players official word on what this new version has to offer, and it’s basically what fans were expecting.
What will be included in Resident Evil 4: Gold Edition?
Resident Evil 4: Gold Edition will include the base game, the Separate Ways DLC, and other perks that were available in the Deluxe Edition.
Most modern Resident Evil titles have received a “definitive edition” of sorts, with Resident Evil Village being the most recent one. Resident Evil Village: Gold Edition included the base game along with all the DLCs, additional content for the Winters’ Expansion, a third-person mode, and more. Resident Evil 4’s offering is effectively the same.
Resident Evil 4: Deluxe Edition included numerous accessories and skins for Ashley and Leon, an alternate soundtrack from the original version of the game, additional treasures on the map, and the Skull Shaker and Sentinel Nine guns. All of this will be included in the Gold Edition.
When will Resident Evil 4: Gold Edition come out?
Resident Evil 4 Gold Edition will come out on February 9, 2024 on Steam, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.
Resident Evil 4: Deluxe Edition carries a $70 price tag on the PlayStation Store, while the Separate Ways DLC costs $10. Resident Evil 4 Gold Edition will not receive a physical release in most region, with Europe set to be the only territory that has the option of a non-digital purchase.
While Resident Evil 4 was a major success, many fans are already looking forward when it comes to the series. There has been an uptick in discussion regarding a Resident Evil Code: Veronica remake as well as hints of a remake of Resident Evil 5, and fans are clamoring for more modernized takes on their favorite games from the past.
