I’m in the midst of playing through Resident Evil 6 right now — yes, I’m super later — but I’m ecstatic I already have my next Resident Evil experience to play through now with the release of Resident Evil 0. And I already can’t wait to play this souped up HD remake of the GameCube installment.
Resident Evil 0 takes the fear-inducing atmosphere from the original 2002 release and transforms it with stunning new HD visuals, improved sound, widescreen support, an optional modernized control system and more. A prequel to the original Resident Evil, the title offers newcomers and series fans the chance to revisit the story of what really happened before the iconic Mansion Incident that was the catalyst for the entire Resident Evil saga.
New to this version of the game, Wesker Mode is unlocked when the main campaign is completed. In this mode, players can experience the game playing as Resident Evil’s infamous villain, Albert Wesker, wielding the powerful abilities he gained from the Uroboros virus in later games, alongside rookie cop Rebecca Chambers in an alternate costume.
The game just released for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for $40 or you can grab the standalone digital download version for $20. Of all the Resident Evil characters, Rebecca is probably the last one on my must-play list so I’m curious if the game will make experincing the madness through her eyes more fun than I’m envisioning.
What about you? Looking forward to playing it?
