Later in 2022, Capcom will release free graphics updates for its remakes of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3together with Resident Evil 7introducing ray tracing, a high frame rate mode and 3D audio to the PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.

If you already have copies of these games on the PS4 or Xbox One, you can get these updates for free. There will be a digital upgrade option on PS5, while Xbox will offer its Smart Delivery feature that will automatically play the current generation version of any game as soon as it becomes available. On PC, these upgrades just come in an update.

For PS5, Capcom is rolling out DualSense support for all three games, complete with haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.

Even without graphical updates, Capcom’s recent Resident Evil titles – including the remakes – are among the most visually impressive games out there. They are also some of Capcom’s best games to date. If you are new to the series, or have played alone Resident Evil VillageResident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 7 are both good places to start, but for different reasons.

While their stories barely overlap (don’t worry about the details), they each show how good Capcom is at making horror games. RE2 is a bold reinvention of Capcom’s 1998 PS1 title with a modern gameplay design and great atmosphere, while RE7 goes first-person with a very different kind of environment and perhaps an even more twisted sense of dread. Concerning the RE3 remake, my colleague Sam Byford thought it was good, but not the must-have experience that RE2 is. The next time you see any of them available for a discount for your platform, I suggest you pick them up.
