Leon, Ashley and “that dog” will be making a return to the PC in the form of Resident Evil 4 Ultimate HD on 27 February. Capcom is boasting all of the bells and indeed all of the whistles with this one, including 60fps and full Steam support.
So, that means Steam achievements, cloud support, trading cards (wuu) and global leaderboards. Full controller support is promised, along with “everything from prior iterations,” like the Separate Ways epilogue. Widescreen support is there too, as well as the expected texture overhaul.
If you buy it now (for $20.00 USD,) you’ll get a bonus digital artbook and some tunes.
Is a full PC overhaul enough of an incentive for you to rescue the President’s daughter from half-pint weirdo Salazar for the fifteenth time? Capcom did a pretty decent job with the Resident Evil 6 port I seem to recall, so that bodes well.
Here are some system specs, followed by a trailer (which sadly is limited to 30fps because YouTube.)
