Resident Evil 2, 3, and 7 Next-Gen Updates Available Today
Capcom has been clear about its business plan for years. It focuses on getting people to enjoy older games in a modern setting. Sometimes, this means he remasters. This is how Resident Evil‘s Gamecube remake got remastered and made available on then-modern platforms in 2015. Sometimes it’s remaking like Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil3. With the advancement of technology, sometimes it means that older backward-compatible titles are better viewed on modern platforms.
This is true for Resident Evil 2 (2018) and Resident Evil 3 (2019), respectively, and Resident Evil7(2017). X, and more modern PC hardware. These games are still playable on modern platforms. However, the updated versions will improve the resolution and speed up loading times due to the SSDs built into modern platforms. The minimum requirements for the PC version are slightly higher.
You will also get 4K support and 3D audio.
The best part is that updates are available for existing owners. You can play these games on any modern system if you have the originals. You can insert the disc into your new console to get the update if you have them on the disc. The update will be delivered with every new game you download if you have them digitally. You might not be able to play the game if you don’t own the disc, but you have a diskless version of the current consoles (a PlayStation 5 Digital Edition or an Xbox Series S).
These updates have been rumored for several weeks. Updated files appeared on PSN and were found by data miners. Capcom confirmed that DLC and save data will be transferred.
