Resident Evil 7 is awesome, but Resident Evil 4 is a stone cold classic. Now it’s being fully re-textured by a group of industrious fans, and it looks absolutely incredible.

The Resident Evil 4 HD Project recently released a brand new trailer, showing off what the team has done with the castle area. I can’t believe how much work has gone into this, and I can’t believe how good it looks.

In terms of the work put in, replacing all these textures with new, real world equivalents. Goddamn. I usually skip fan-made stuff like this, but it’s Resident Evil 4 and the work this team has done is truly spectacular.

    • Yeah I am assuming this as well because RE4 is fertile ground for graphics upgrades and rereleases. They’ll can it even if Capcom don’t ever plan to do it themselves.

  • resident evil 4 has already been re-released on next-gen consoles with next to no upgrades, so i doubt they will bother to remaster it – so lets hope they don’t can this

    • They’ll probably can it so that they can retain the option of creating a proper remake in the future. Letting this prosper basically removes that choice from them, because it won’t sell anywhere near as many copies while there’s a free alternative.

  • Been following this for some time now. Really awesome work by dedicated fans. Hope it doesn’t get shut down.
    If capcom were more savvy (and less greedy) they would harness these developers and release it officially.

    • Capcom is aware of our project and it’s not a problem. We even had a conversation wih one of its members in the past 🙂
      We are only sharing the files needed to upgrade the visuals but you need to buy the game first anyway
