Capcom recently announced that Resident Evil 2, 3, and 7 would all see enhanced re-releases for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S later this year, with various visual and technical improvements promised, including ray tracing support, higher frame rates, 3D audio, DualSense implementation on the PS5, and more. Now, the enhanced new-gen versions of the survival horror trio have received more new details.
Capcom recently confirmed on Twitter that all three games will allow players to carry over their saves from the older consoles, which means you can carry over all your saves from PS4 to PS5 or from Xbox One to Xbox Series X/S. It’s also confirmed that the DLC that’s included in Resident Evil 7 Gold Edition will also transfer over.
Previously, it was confirmed that anyone who already owns Resident Evil 2, 3, or 7 will also be eligible for free digital upgrades for the enhanced versions on new-gen consoles. The exact launch date of the three enhancements hasn’t yet been confirmed.
As for what else Resident Evil fans can look forward to, Resident Evil Village DLC is currently in the works, while leaks have strongly suggested that a remake of Resident Evil 4 will be announced soon as well.
We're happy to confirm that save data from the original PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of these games will carry over to their respective upgraded versions. DLC that comes with Resident Evil 7 Gold Edition will transfer over, as well! https://t.co/FVVTPuHBQs
