State of Play kicked off the show strong with the official announcement of the long-rumored Resident Evil 4 Remake, set to release on March 24, 2023 for the PS5.
A game-changer when it was released in 2005, almost 20 years later we get to revisit this modern classic with fully revamped visuals and if we take a page off the recent remakes, it sure will be something to look forward to.
According to the information posted on the PlayStation Blog, the aim of this release was to “create a game that feels both realistic, in line with the modern gaming experience, while keeping the essence of the original game.” In doing so, the team put a heavy focus on the visual direction of the game, making dark scenes feel even darker and more unsettling.

Here’s a quick recap of the story:
Six years have passed since the biological disaster in Racoon City.
Leon S. Kennedy, one of the survivors of the incident, has been recruited as an agent reporting directly to the president.
With the experience of multiple missions on his back, Leon is sent to rescue the kidnapped daughter of the president of the United States.
He tracks her to a secluded European village, where there is something terribly wrong with the villagers.
And the curtain rises on this story of grueling survival horror and rescue.
Resident Evil 4 Remake is scheduled to release on March 24, 2023 for the PS5, Xbox Series, and PC.
