Resident Evil 4 Remake gameplay trailer reveals some major changes that are coming to the game

The Resident Evil 4 remake features a new gameplay clip from Capcom that reveals some significant gameplay improvements while also showcasing improved combat and the iconic “Chainsaw Man,” better known as Dr. Salvador. At the most recent Resident Evil Showcase event, Capcom gave fans a tonne of fascinating new footage to check out, as was to be anticipated.

Like in the original, the new Resident Evil 4 remake gameplay trailer opened with Leon S. Kennedy, the game’s protagonist, walking into the home of a villager. The Resident Evil 4 remake’s mansion, though, is notably different from the one that longtime fans may recall. It’s larger, dirtier, and has a generally eerie appearance. Like opposed to directly on the first level as in the previous game, this time Leon must examine the home in the basement, where he battles his first infected villager.

Although the Resident Evil 4 remake obviously aims for a more eerie vibe than the original RE4, it doesn’t imply the action or cheesiness will be diminished. The action immediately switches to Leon facing off against a horde of villagers at once in the infamous village scenario from the first Resident Evil 4. Here, fans can see that Leon still has access to his lethal roundhouse kick and other famous melee strikes. He also has several more powerful techniques this time around, though.

Leon may use his knife to execute violent melee assaults on foes in Resident Evil 4 that were not truly feasible in the previous game. In addition, Leon may deflect opponent assaults by parrying with his dagger. This involves dodging a chainsaw, demonstrating that despite the Resident Evil 4 remake appearing to be more serious than the game’s earlier iterations, it will still be absurd and extravagant.

Salvador uses his chainsaw to destroy a scaffold and block a passage, giving Leon’s confrontation with him this time around a few more twists and turns. Given that Leon would have less freedom to move, one must assume that this will make this part of the game harder. He can now set cows on fire and send them charging at the people, so that should help level the playing field a little.

It appears that the Resident Evil 4 remake will pay respect to the original game while still being willing to broaden its boundaries a little. Fans will find out when the Resident Evil 4 remake release date arrives early in the following year whether it lives up to the high standard set by the original release.

Launch dates for Resident Evil 4 on PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X are March 24, 2023.
