Today’s the day – Resident Evil 4 is available now, joining Resident Evil 5 and 6 as digital downloads and physical discs on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for just $19.99 (USD) each! Regardless of if you’re a series veteran or brand-new to these titles, all three modern hits in the Resident Evil series have been re-released and are available now!

In Resident Evil 4, join Leon S. Kennedy as he navigates the European countryside, fending off the attacks of local villagers infected by Las Plagas while searching for the President’s daughter, Ashley Graham. Infected villagers aren’t the only enemies Leon will need to watch out for, with all kinds of deadly foes on the prowl. Expect series staples, such as infected dogs, as well as infamous foes such as the chainsaw-wielding Dr. Salvador. As Resident Evil veterans know, Resident Evil 4 was the first in the series to introduce an over-the-shoulder camera to aim with pin-point accuracy, allowing players to stun their enemies before delivering crushing finishing blows. Be sure to aim for weak points on mutated monstrosities and bosses to inflict punishing amounts of damage, or trigger special events to deliver powerful attacks!

There’s plenty of bonus content to enjoy once Leon’s completed his rescue mission as well. The “Separate Ways” campaign puts you in control of series mainstay Ada Wong as she completes her own mission, parallel to the events of Resident Evil 4. The Mercenaries mode pits you against hordes of enemies, with the aim of earning a high score with various characters and loadouts. Looking for a challenge? Play through the main campaign again in Professional mode, a tough-as-nails difficulty with stronger enemies! In addition, you’ll also have access to two new bonus costumes each for Leon and Ashley that can be used in either the main campaign or Professional mode. There’s plenty here for both newcomers and long-time fans!

With Resident Evil 4 out now, you can live (or relive) through the horror that defined a generation. Resident Evil 4, 5, and 6 are all available now as both a digital download and physical disc on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for $19.99 (USD)! Plus, watch our very own Tim Turi as he reunites with the Game Informer staff in their Super Replay of Resident Evil 4 !
