Resident Evil Origins Collection, a newly announced disc bundle of two remastered classic games in the survival horror series, will ship on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in early 2016. A reveal trailer can be found below.

The collection will carry both the latest Resident Evil remaster, as well as the upcoming HD edition of prequel Resident Evil 0. This bundle is set to ship across North America in "early 2016." In Europe, a more definite release date has been announced, with the game set to go on sale from January 22.

Capcom said the Origins Collection will ship across five platforms in total; Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC.

GameSpot's Resident Evil HD Remaster review, published in January, was generally positive. "There's a beautiful simplicity to Resident Evil HD that serves as a reminder that the best mysteries don't need convoluted stories to be enthralling," wrote critic Kevin VanOrd.

Meanwhile, Capcom has offered more information on its Resident Evil 0 remaster project, which is also scheduled to ship standalone in early 2016, priced at $20.

Added to the remake is a new 'Wesker Mode,' which Capcom explains gives players the chance to "experience the events leading up to the iconic mansion outbreak playing as alternative character Albert Wesker, alongside S.T.A.R.S. member Rebecca Chambers."

The publisher adds: "Both Wesker and Chambers will star in a special themed outfit for the mode, with Wesker replacing the traditional gameplay role of Billy Coen."

Resident Evil 0 HD is set to ship early 2016 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. It is part of Capcom's new strategy to develop and release more HD remasters.

A new video detailing the Wesker mode can be found below.

They should have modes where you can play as like the Tyrant in First Person and try to Kill Chris, Jill and Wiskers....Or like a backwards/mercenary mode kinda like Ex Battle in RE2, I guess its a nice little scrap of an add-on, maybe put a little more effort into their "beloved franchise

maybe Capcom is super busy doing some other shtuff

@DoomglooM: well that one about the Tyrant, I was thinking of the Original remake remastered whatever resident evil but they could definitely add more stuff like that with these 10+ year old games with all of Today's super duper consoles" lol

Idk, I think that's gonna be a problem zipping away from Rebecca like that, this is supposed to be a team based effort there, and you just can't leave an 18 year old female rookie STARS member alone like that.. given the circumstances (there were bats in that 1 area)....Unless where you can play as Wesker being the Villain like he is and just Kill her and beat the whole game himself with all his Superpowers, like ice breath and stuff?? I don't really understand this "Wesker Mode", but it sounds Pretty Odd to me....

Wesker mode? About 2 or 3 year I wrote to Capcom saying can you make A (Resident Evil: The Wesker Files) game and this is what they came up with so far. Close but no cigar. I have a smile & a frown going on rite now, I'm happy I finally get play a game as Wesker and (Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles) doesn't count but I'm upset because in my head I imagined this game being so much better. It would be awesome if you get to play a game as Wesker from beginning to end explaining his full story with the real Wesker and the clone with all his powers plus have Ada Wong as a bonus.

Wesker is powered by the progenitor virus when he is in this form, not the Uroboro virus. Geez even the developers cat get their story straight

@feron315: It's his Resident Evil 5 model so pretty sure it's Uroboros :)

Progenitor was after the events of Resident Evil 1.

@RSM-HQ: I think he isnt infected with uroboros until the very end where he shoved his hand into the missile and transformed into those tenticles thing. Throughtout the game in RE5 he has to be injected with something that stablize the progenitor virus.

@feron315: According to the Archives, Albert Wesker has had the Uroboros virus in his system since the events of Resident Evil 4. It's safe to say it never ended with the Progenitor virus, with Wesker as it was never enough.

He wants a world where only the fittest survive. And him as king. The whole point in Uroboros is he survived the effects (to an extent) so he want's more people like himself.

The end of Resident Evil 5, he was given an overdose thus he furthered it with smashing his arm into the capsule out of hatred. He actually had Uroboros in his system before that but it was contained, along with the Progenitor Virus.

The new mode seems both clever and a simple throw together. The fanbase that started with 5 & Revelations now have a mode that will fit them, and that's pretty clever. Almost anyone I know like the character Wesker so it's a win-win.

Not sure if I'll try it, seems very tacked on like Tofu mode.

Wonder if they'll have anything for Remake 2 at Tokyo Game Show. Too early?

Why release this when they've confirmed RE2 HD Remaster why not release this collection with both remasters of the 0, 1 & 2 MAKES MORE SENSE

@Dav_id83: Well, 2 isn't going to be a Remaster, it's going to be a full on Remake and who knows when that is coming out. Knowing Capcom, when RE 2 comes out, they'll probably bundle it with these 2 games again.

@Dav_id83: I totally agree with you. The Resident Evil series isn't moving forward so Capcom is trying to make profits by reselling old and successful games from the series.

@Heazie: WTF has my comment got to do with game development my comment was aimed at not ripping off the consumer why release a bundle of Resident Evil 0 and 1 remasters when you also have 2 getting a remaster into HD why not release them all in 1 bundle for a certain price.

@Dav_id83: Who's getting ripped off? If you've already got the reREmake, just get RE0's remaster for $20. If you don't have either, get the collection.

And when RE2's remaster comes out they may well release another bundle with that too.

@Dav_id83: It actually has to do with quite a lot, but I'll let you wallow in your ignorance myself. If someone else wants to explain why it has loads to do with what you're speaking about, they're a better person than I.

I'll just leave you with a little hint: you need to learn the meaning of "remaster" vs. "remake"

@Dav_id83: The thing is, Resident Evil 1 and Resident Evil 0 already had remakes for the gamecube, this remaster is simply porting over the gamecubes remake and retouching it into HD quality graphics for PS3 / PS4 / 360 / Xbox One.

Resident Evil 2 is actually being remade from the ground up kinda like what final fantasy 7(VII)is getting, so it'd would be another 12 months or 18 months before we even see Resident Evil 2 Launch and, and resident evil 1 remake just released back in January this year(2015) so it makes sense right now to bundle those two in a neat package seeing how they're the origin games hence the article.

Resident Evil 2 and 3 just continued the story afterwards. And if RE2 Remake does incredibly well you can bet Nemesis will get a remake as well.

So in short: A remaster is not the same as a remake: a remake is rebuilding the game from the ground up in HD quality. A Remaster is simply porting over an existing game and retouching the graphics, resolutions, OST and controls. It's actually quite simple and easier to do with less development time.

@louie_cloud: It seems like she is being controlled by Wesker. You can see that she has the red chest piece which infuse p30 into her like Jill.

Pass. I'll take a HUNK mode though :D

Neck snapping action! Seriously though wouldn't this have fitted better as REmake minigame? Escape the mansion as Wesker or something?

Already got Resident Evil HD, but both on disc for 20 bucks isn't a bad deal. Physical>digital.

That Wesker mode in RE0 looks hella dumb. I think Capcom really regrets killing off Wesker in RE5 or something.

@Simulator_Shock: Wesker is kind of like Michael Myers. He's been killed quite a few times now in RE 1, Code Veronica, 5, probably something else.

Only 20 bucks? Sold! Finally a remaster that's priced fair like rare replay. I laughed so hard when I seen subpar deadpool game coming to current gen at 50 freaking dollars.
