Resident Evil 4 is once again infecting PC, this time courtesy of a super duper Ultimate HD Edition, setting a new benchmark for high-definition.

Shinji Mikami’s revelatory survival horror experience first landed on PC seven years ago, but the new Resident Evil 4: Ultimate HD Edition is promising silky-smooth 60 frames per second gameplay and all at the greatest graphical quality ever…

Resident Evil 4 has been doing the rounds on nearly every console since its release on Gamecube back in 2005, but this re-release will apparently be the place to play it. Fully optimised for PC, Resident Evil 4: Ultimate HD Edition will have upgraded textures, characters, backgrounds and objects. For its time Resident Evil 4 was always a lavish looking game so this should hold up well.

Arriving for Steam means it will come with all the usual bells and whistles such as Steam trading cards, achievements and global leaderboards. It will also include all of the released DLC in an ultimate bundle. I jest… Those were the days.

Resident Evil 4 follows Leon Kennedy as he makes his to remote Eastern European village to rescue the President's daughter from a mysterious cult infected by a mutated virus. Textbook Resident Evil in other words. The game is fondly remembered for pioneering the over-the-shoulder third-person perspective that has become standard practice in games today.

Resident Evil 4 is already one of the best Resident Evil games going, so if you haven’t had a chance to play this yet it will inevitably be worth picking up and boy are you in for a ride.

Resident Evil 4: Ultimate HD Edition is set to arrive for PC on February 28th.

Are you going to be taking the plunge again for a souped-up copy of Resident Evil 4?

Do you think this is the best Resident Evil?

It looks like you wont be buying it then. Because It's NOT going to happen. There never was an open world resident evil game.

Did you mean never will be ? You don't know that. I read an article back that Capcom wants to reboot RE and was considering making it open world.

You did not play RE4 before, that's a shame! It's a legend in the gaming world though. Besides, it is the game that successfully established OTS (Over The Shoulder) Gameplay. After this one, many games developers followed its gameplay style like Gears of War and its sequeals and many others.

if I'll be able to play it, and if it has good PC controls (which the original RE4 does NOT), I'm interested :D

RE4 has bad controls -period-. RE has always had ****e controls as far as I'm concerned, the sluggish movements, turning around as though you have your head bolted on too tight, the imbecile way in which you can only run/aim/shoot, one at a time. Run, stop, turn, aim, shoot a little, turn, run smore...etc.. 80% of all deaths in RE games are what I call "cheap" deaths, meaning they're the result of stupid controls or game mechanics, and not because you failed and deserve it.

I was talking just keyboard layout and everything :) you could tell it was a console port not modified for PCs, even though a version of the game has mouse support, the rest of the layout was awful. Even though I dislike it, RE5 had the best controls of the REs I've played. (talking console, but I imagine on PC it would work better, too.)

This is great news, I trust they will make this a optimized game and I can't wait to play it. It is surely my favorite of the franchise!

How about not remaking RE4 into HD, and remaking RE2 for example. It would be a better choice and would sell way better!
