Resident Evil 4 PlayStation 5 Upgrade is Free if You Have the PS4 Version
Remakes are very popular in gaming, although I don’t think that is the right word. Perhaps more appropriate is the term “prevalent”. New-generation reimaginings of the most beloved games, from Dead Space to Part I, appear all over. Capcom announced in June that 2005’s Resident Evil was being remade.
This remake is looking very promising, possibly because it’s older than the original. Capcom released new gameplay footage yesterday, which, aside from looking fantastic, also confirmed that you couldn’t save the dog this time. Capcom did reveal the new-gen upgrade path, which was happy news.
Capcom has confirmed that all PlayStation 4 Editions of the Resident Evil4 remake will allow you to upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version at no additional cost. It is encouraging to see that more publishers are introducing an upgrade fee.
In July, Sony announced that those who want to upgrade to God Of War Ragnarok on their PS5 would need to pay $10 (or the equivalent in currency). This will likely be the case for all PlayStation first-party exclusives. After the February release of Horizon Forbidden West, Sony reversed its decision and told fans that this would be the last free upgrade path.
Capcom is making Resident Evil4’s upgrade path utterly free of charge. The game will be released on March 24, 2023. Pre-orders can be made now.
