The next-gen updates will come to both PC and consoles throughout the year and owners of the current versions of the games will be eligible for free upgrades.
Capcom also mentioned that the next-generation versions of the three latest Resident Evil titles will get some new improvements. All three titles will tout cutting-edge features including ray tracing, high frame rate, and 3D audio to enhance the immersion of the award-winning experiences. For PlayStation 5 players, all three titles also feature engaging DualSense support for Haptic Feedback and Adaptive Triggers.
If you own the games on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, you don't need to worry about adding another $70 USD per entry. In fact, you don't need to worry about paying anything at all.

Fans will be able to re-experience the spine-chilling horrors and incredible visuals of these fan-favorite titles on the latest generation of consoles. PC players don't need to worry, either as the current versions of the games will be updated to receive all of the next-gen upgrades. As such, the PC players will not be left out of the next-generation upgrade fold.
