Capcom announced today via its official blog that Resident Evil 4 will launch for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on August 30.
The HD version of Resident Evil 4 will feature bonus content such as the following:
- Ada Wong Side Story – The mysterious and elusive Ada Wong stars in her own side story, which fills in intriguing story gaps from Leon’s mission.
- Mercenaries Mode – The addicting evolution of Resident Evil 3’s bonus mode is awarded to players who complete the campaign, providing hours of replayability and lets fans play as Wesker, Hunk, and more iconic characters.
- New Game Plus – Allows players to bring their powerful arsenal, unlocked costumes, and other secret weapons into a fresh playthrough.
- Costumes and Weapons – Want to focus on yourself instead of protecting Ashley? Equip her with the knight armor costume and laugh as enemy’s attempt to attack her or carry her off with futility. Leon’s Chicago Typewriter – an insanely powerful Tommy Gun – also provides a fun power trip if you have enough cash to give the infamous Merchant.
For those who never played Resident Evil 4 when it was first released on GameCube, PlayStation 2 or PC, definitely consider picking it up on August 30. The game should retail at $19.99, similar to the pricing of Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 HD.
