Leon Kennedy is charged with retrieving the President’s daughter six years after narrowly escaping the Raccoon City tragedy. She has been kidnapped by a weird cult in a small Spanish hamlet, and the agricultural environment makes the event all the more eerie. Capcom is set to release a top-down recreation of the landmark game nearly two decades later.
Early reviews are very positive, with Inverse proclaiming it “the finest reimagining of the famous horror series to date.” This is all you should know.
WHEN WILL THE RESIDENT EVIL 4 REVISION BE RELEASED?
On March 24, 2023, Resident Evil 4 will be released on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC through Steam. The debut time, according to the site PureXbox, is midnight GMT, which is five hours ahead of Eastern time. Supposedly, the game will be released at the stroke of local midnight. Despite the lack of formal confirmation from Capcom, if this is genuine, Resident Evil 4 could conceivably premiere internationally on Thursday, March 23, 2023, at 7 p.m. Eastern.
According to a post from Game8, the launch will be region-locked, meaning everyone in the United States will have access at the same time. Hence, if it starts at 12 a.m. Eastern Time, folks on the west coast may obtain access on Thursday at 9 p.m. In any event, if you’re eager to begin the game, you should investigate your preload choices.
WHAT ARE THE DETAILS OF THE RESIDENT EVIL 4 PRELOAD?

Additionally, according to the game’s Steam page, “This game plans to unlock … roughly 2 days” after Tuesday, which presumably suggests a March 23 preload.
