I know that some folks have had their fill of Resident Evil news this week. I mean, it’s only taken an eternity for Capcom to announce the remake of Resident Evil 2, show off the goods, reveal what goods you get, and show the game in action. Still, others like myself can’t get enough news. Like the announcement that the Resident Evil 4 HD Project mod finally has a release date!
The mod, which has been in the works for over four years, will be released on Friday, July 13, 2018. The mod in question improves the original game’s textures (up to 16x their original resolution), introduces new dynamic lighting and shadows, updates to the UI, character models and more.
In a detailed blog post, the creators also explain that just because the mod has a release date, doesn’t mean that it’s “complete”. Things like enemies, NPCs and other playable characters will still need to have work done, but looking at the comparison videos on author’s YouTube page, it’s definitely going to be worth the wait.
