Resident Evil 4 Remake Chapter 5 looks crazy different from the original
It’s different but beautiful.
It seems crazy to say, but March marks the return of Resident Evil 4, Capcom’s survival-horror hit that reinvented the genre. After varying degrees of success in the revamped editions of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3, fans patiently hold their breath in anticipation of how many changes Leon and Ashley will see in their fight against the nightmarish cult.
The latest footage, courtesy of Game Informer, shows a thirteen minute tour of the fifth chapter of the game. If there was any doubt that Capcom would make any notable changes, the walkthrough shatters it in all aspects, as seen through the lenses of a torrential downpour.
The video begins with Leon and Ashley sneaking through the church to escape from the crazed fanatics. New improvements show that talking to Leon’s Handler is a seamless experience and doesn’t interrupt the action, as well as a much more modern version of the in-game map.
From there, the video focuses on other areas of improvement. Leon is no longer an agent stuck in the quicksand as he can run free and pick his way out of trouble. Something that was briefly hinted at in previous trailers was the introduction of stealth, but this time there’s a better focus on that as the player sneaks over to take down an unsuspecting cultist. Interestingly, the commenter mentions that they tried to sneak through the area with little success. Perhaps there is room for this tactic to be viable in future chapters.
With their ramshackle shack surrounded by angry cultists, Leon and Luis struggle to survive, marking the end of the video. Dedicated fans may remember this part as it’s by no means a new segment, but when it happens in-game is another story. In the original, this sequence takes place in Chapter 2-2, but in the remake it takes place in Chapter 5, raising the question of how long this revised experience will last or if other sequences have been strategically shifted.
We’re also excited to find out if Luis’ accidental (or intentional) frequent shooting still results in him pointing his gun at you in retaliation, or if other fun little quirks are still carried over from the original.
It’s remarkable how Resident Evil 4 looks the same back then and yet so different. Capcom has taken the liberty of making this a much more modern experience, with this footage showing some changes. It won’t be long before the release of Resident Evil 4 Remake, giving players the chance to discover what other surprises await them.
