Resident Evil 4 Remake To Include In-Game Purchases Hinting at a Possible Multiplayer Mode – Effinate Games


The Resident Evil 4 Remake announcement was a treat for franchise fans. Widely regarded as the best Resident Evil game, the remake will feature everything we loved about RE4 and possibly more. New information on the ESRB ratings site has indicated that the remake will feature in-game purchases and hint at a multiplayer mode.

Resident Evil 4 Remake could feature multiplayer

According to ESRB page, the upcoming Resident Evil 4 Remake will feature in-game purchases. Usually, when a game has it, it means it’s going to integrate some kind of multiplayer mode. The best example is the previous Resident Evil 3 Remake, which has a similar system and a multiplayer mode called Resident Evil Resistance.

ESRB rating of Resident Evil 4 Remake

It is very possible that Capcom will also go the same route with RE4 Remake. We’ve also seen multiplayer be a big part of recent Resident Evil entries in the form of Resident Evil 8 including Resident Evil Re:Verse. Another strange part is that in-game purchases seem to be only on PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, and PlayStation 5, leaving out PC entirely. It’s hard to say what direction Capcom is going with this one as nothing is official so far. There is neither a confirmation nor a denial, so we will have to wait until there is an official word.

Resident Evil 4 is already arguably the most popular game in the franchise, so fans are really hyped. It took a slightly different approach from the first games that ended up going in the right direction and influencing horror games even today. So if multiplayer turns out to be a part of the game, it will be a cherry on top. The RE2 and RE3 remakes were a massive success and if the developers can copy the formula, the RE4 Remake will follow suit.

Resident Evil 4 Remake could be next year’s biggest launch, and we hope Capcom delivers on all the hype surrounding it. The game will be released on March 24, 2023. It is currently available for pre-order on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and Series S, as well as PC.
