Resident Evil 4 Remake to Include In-Game Purchases and Potential Multiplayer

The remake of Resident Evil 4 will have in-game purchases, which might imply that the survival horror would also include a multiplayer element. The recreation of the famous RE4 is expected to be one of the most anticipated releases of 2023. Given the popularity of the remakes of the second and third entries in the series, there are great hopes for this impending release to have an influence on the genre.

The original Resident Evil 4 has been ported to several platforms throughout the years. It debuted in 2005 as a GameCube exclusive before being released on the PS2. Since then, there has been a popular Nintendo Wii version, as well as ports for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The game is now available on Android and iOS. When it was initially launched, the game generated quite a stir, breaking the pattern of the previous three instalments and going on to impact horror gaming.

In terms of the remake, Resident Evil 4 isn’t far away, and there’s a chance it’ll have multiplayer. According to the Entertainment Software Rating Board, or ESRB, the title will have in-game purchases, notably on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series platforms. No more information is provided about the nature of these acquisitions. However, given that RE3 Remake has a similar feature, which also contains multiplayer in the form of Resident Evil Resistance, it is possible that RE4 will have multiplayer as well. However, this has yet to be verified, so take the information with a grain of salt.

Fans are already pumped about the game, and if multiplayer is included, that’s just one more thing to look forward to. However, it has since been revealed that Resident Evil 4 Remake would incorporate Denuvo, the contentious DRM software. Gamers have previously expressed concerns about other games that use anti-piracy technology, with titles such as Deathloop being panned when it was discovered that DRM was causing stuttering in the PC edition.

Many believe Resident Evil 4 to be the finest of Capcom’s games in its flagship horror genre. While some fans believe the series veered off course after that, with the fifth and sixth titles focusing largely on the action, recent releases have gotten RE back on track, and remakes have helped breathe fresh life into the original games.
