The latest remake of Resident Evil, based on a previous remake released on the GameCube in 2002, has launched online for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. The new version features upgraded textures, remastered audio with support for 5.1, two resolution choices (4:3 or 16:9 widescreen), support for a new control scheme in addition to the old tank-style controls, and a new Easy Mode. The GameCube version was also released for the Wii as part of the Archive series, but for those who haven’t tried it, imagine the original game but with revamped puzzles, tweaked enemy placement, and slightly different pace. As a reminder, this is a download-only release, so check for it on Live, PSN, and Steam.
