Who needs a remake when we have Resident Evil 4's HD Project Mod
While Capcom are rumoured to be remaking Resident Evil 4 for modern console/PC hardware, it is hard to argue that Resident Evil 4 isn't a great game as-is. The visuals may be muddy by today's standards, but at its core, Resident Evil 4 is still fun to play. Thankfully, even the game's 2005 visuals have been getting revamped by the PC modding community over the past seven years, creating what will soon be the essential mod for Resident Evil 4.
If you want to see this mod in action, just watch the video below. When this mod officially releases, it will greatly diminish the world's need for Resident Evil 4's planned remake. For many gamers, this will be the definitive edition of Resident Evil 4, not Capcom's remade version.
While I have loved Capcom's remakes of Resident Evil 2 & 3, it is hard to imagine Capcom creating something that is better than their original incarnation of Resident Evil 4. Resident Evil 2/3's originals are clunky by today's standards, but Resident Evil, despite its age, still feels very modern. Capcom could surprise us with their Resident Evil 4 remake, but that won't make Resident Evil 4's HD Project any less impressive.
Resident Evil 4's HD Project will launch on February 2nd 2022 on the re4hd website. Pre-release versions of the mod are already available to download, but these versions are incomplete and feature bugs that will not be present within the mod's final version.
