Today, Capcom updated the official website for Resident Evil HD Remastered and released some new details about the game. According to the details, the game will run at full HD 1080p resolution on both the latest PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, and at 720p on the last-gen PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles. Mover over, the game will run at 30 frames per second on all platforms. List of new improvements and enhancements was also given on the website, and you can check it out below.

Graphics:

  • The environments come alive with detail thanks to resolution upgrades and non-static 3D models.
  • Post-processing effects like Bloom filters, which were not easy to do at the time of the original release, have been added to make the HD graphics even more realistic. The original game called this technique “video backgrounds.” We recorded the backgrounds themselves as videos to create realism that couldn’t be rendered in real time with the technology of the time.

Aspect Ratio:

  • You can play in the original 4:3 screen ratio as well as 16:9 widescreen. CG cutscene movies also support the new widescreen ratio.
  • In widescreen mode, the screen will scroll. The parts of the screen that get cut off on the top and bottom will scroll into view automatically depending on the character’s position (you can switch the display mode during gameplay in real time).

Sound:

  • The audio has been remastered to increase the sampling rate, and of course 5.1ch output is also now supported.

New Controls:

  • You can play using the original control scheme or an alternate control scheme that lets you just push the analog stick to move in the direction you want to go. You can switch the control scheme during gameplay in real time.
