Resident Evil 4 Remake, one of the most highly anticipated games of the year, has finally hit the market. Fans of the survival horror genre are in awe of the game’s stunning design, visuals, programming, and gameplay.
However, there were concerns about how well the game would perform on both current and previous generations of consoles. With Capcom’s decision to release the game on PlayStation 4, which is over a decade old, gamers were skeptical about how well the game would run.
In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the performance of Resident Evil 4 Remake on different consoles and examine whether Capcom made the right choice by betting on its engine.
The Digital Foundry team analyzed the game’s performance on PlayStation 4 and found that the game runs quite smoothly, although it is apparent that the console’s hardware is outdated.
The base PS4 version of the game runs at a resolution of 900p and around 35-30fps, while the PS4 Pro version offers two modes – performance mode and resolution mode.
In performance mode, the game runs at 972p and at a frame rate of 50-60fps, with dips down to 40fps. In resolution mode, the game runs at full 4K resolution but at a lower frame rate of just 20fps.
The game performs much better on PlayStation 5, with a resolution of 1944p and 2160p respectively for performance mode and resolution mode. The game runs at a stable frame rate of 60fps with dips down to 40fps.
On Xbox Series X, the game runs at a resolution of 1800p and 2160p, with slightly more performance issues but still offering very smooth gameplay.
On Xbox Series S, the game runs at 1080p and 1440p. In resolution mode, the game can experience a drop in frame rate to 30fps.
Overall, Capcom’s decision to bet on its engine has proven to be a wise choice for Resident Evil 4 Remake. The game performs well on most consoles, with only slight performance issues on older consoles.
The game’s stunning design, visuals, programming, and gameplay make it a must-play for fans of the horror genre. Despite the slight performance issues on some consoles, Resident Evil 4 Remake is a testament to the power of Capcom’s engine and the company’s commitment to delivering high-quality games.
