Earlier this year, Capcom promised gamers that the popular Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3 and Resident Evil 7 biohazard games would receive updates to take advantage of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles. Those updates are now available worldwide, and are free to anyone who owns a copy of the original games.
Resident Evil 7 biohazard launched back in 2017, and redefined the series as a first-person experience. Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 are remakes of their ’90s PlayStation original titles. Both were well received, though Resident Evil 3 less so due to its relatively short duration. The Resident Evil 2 remake however, is still proving popular years after release.
From today, gamers on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S can now enjoy all three of these titles enhanced visual performance. All three of the games now support 4K resolution, ray tracing, higher frame rates, and 3D audio. PlayStation 5 gamers also receive DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive trigger support.
PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players can upgrade at no additional cost via the digital upgrade program and Smart Delivery. PC patches for all three titles arrive today as well.
