The three titles will be re-released at budget prices this year, will be offered physically and digitally
Capcom announced today that starting with Resident Evil 6 on March 29, re-releases of Resident Evil 4, 5 and 6 will be coming to PS4 and Xbox One for $19.99 each.
The publisher says Resident Evil 5 will follow in the summer and Resident Evil 4 will hit the consoles in the fall. The games will be available as digital downloads and on-disc in the Americas.
“Resident Evil 6 is the biggest Resident Evil game to date with not one (Leon S. Kennedy and Helena Harper), not two (Chris Redfield and Piers Nivans), not even three (Jake Muller and Sherry Birkin), but FOUR (Ada Wong and Agent) campaigns that are all interwoven and can be played alone or co-op in any order,” said the press release on Capcom-Unity’s website.
“These series staples and new characters face a global C-virus outbreak that’s threatening to destroy the world. In addition to all the story campaigns, RE6 includes a variety of multiplayer modes that vary up the action. Extra good news for everyone – the upcoming release will also include all the additional post-launch content from the console version (DLC and all the costumes originally only available through ResidentEvil.net).”
No word on what enhancements have been made to these games, but perhaps we’ll find out more closer to each game’s launch.
Capcom says these games are being re-released as a celebration of the Resident Evil series’ long history.
“In March 1996, the world was introduced to the first Resident Evil game, which helped shape survival horror as we know it and has since brought you some of the most loved games of all time,” said the publisher. “You’ve been able to play through the origins stories that started everything with the recent releases of Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0, and we’ve confirmed that a remake of Resident Evil 2 is on the way. Since then, the series and story have evolved to amp up the action and introduce new epic gaming moments with Resident Evil 4, 5 and 6.”
