Capcom's upcoming high-definition Resident Evil remake is now available to pre-purchase and pre-load on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game officially launches on January 20, and pre-loading ensures that you'll be able to play the game the second it becomes officially available.

The game, an updated version of 2002's Resident Evil REmake for GameCube (which itself is a remake of the 1996 original), was announced in August. It will output in 1080p on Xbox One and PS4, and will take up around 14.2 GB of hard drive space.

The new Resident Evil game supports cross-buy on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, meaning if you buy one version of the $20 game, you'll get the other for free. Cross-buy support, however, is only available if you preorder.

The game is also coming to Xbox 360 and PC on January 20.

In addition to the Resident Evil remake, Capcom will release Resident Evil: Revelations 2 in 2015 for consoles and PC. The publisher may also be working on Resident Evil 7, according to a report.
