Resident Evil has been on everyone’s lips again since the showcase last week. In addition to the upcoming new titles, a well-known classic is now coming back into focus, namely Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.
The successful Resident Evil 7: Biohazard could, so to speak, celebrate a comeback. If you believe a new rumor, then the classic from 2017 will be clearly revived. A corresponding next-gen upgrade has been in progress at Capcom for PS5 and Xbox Series X / S since then.
If you want to enjoy the horror action game on the new consoles, you may be able to do so in new splendor in the foreseeable future. This is how the often well-informed leaker reports AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golemon via Twitterthat a next-gen patch at the developer is “100%” in the works.
However, he left open what is specifically planned for this next-gen upgrade. However, due to the procedure with comparable titles, one can assume that at least the resolution and / or the frame rates will be noticeably increased on the more powerful hardware. If you go even deeper at Capcom, further improvements than the classic ones may be conceivable.
If the rumor about a full-fledged next-gen upgrade for Resident Evil 7 is confirmed, then it could be assumed that this will be released before the new Resident Evil 8, which will be released on May 7, 2021. Ultimately, Capcom should then want to get the community in the mood for the latest addition to the longstanding series.
Stichwort Resident Evil 8: AestheticGamer also brings the support of virtual reality in the new series offshoot into discussion. Resident Evil 7 already got a VR mode, which was well received. Since the new part also remains true to the first-person perspective introduced with Resident Evil 7, implementation would certainly be possible. However, the leaker makes one limitation: He is sure that such a VR mode was definitely planned at a certain point in time, but it cannot be ruled out that it might not become part of the finished game after all. After all, there has been no official announcement to date.
