Resident Evil 4 Remaster Modders Committed Despite RE4 Remake Rumors
The Resident Evil 4 HD Project is approaching completion, and the modders behind it are sticking with it to the end.
Resident Evil 4 is one of the most beloved games in Capcom's seminal series, and different mod groups have started projects to remaster the game over the years. One such effort is the Resident Evil 4 HD Project, which aims to totally overhaul the survival-horror shooter's visuals to align with modern standards, like as updating its 2D textures for real-world objects into true 3D models. Rumors of a Resident Evil 4 remake by Capcom are not slowing modders down.
In a recent update, modder Albert said that the duo behind the project remain committed to finishing it despite recent rumors of a total RE4 remake in the vein of the recent Resident Evil 3, which sold quite well. "I don't really care if it's done or not," he wrote. "Capcom's latest remakes are way different from the original versions. The original game will still be unique and worthy of a remastered version."
The current release of Resident Evil 4 HD Project only includes the work of the two modders up to July 2018, but it represents a substantial improvement to the original visuals. According to their progress tracker, though the meat of the project is completed, they're a little more than halfway finished with their final revisions to the core game.
Widely considered one of the greatest action games ever made, Resident Evil 4 recently turned 15 years old. If you're confused about the labyrinthine series of events that make up the Resident Evil series, check out our timeline.
