Releasing ahead of schedule, Capcom announced today that Resident Evil 4 will be available digitally on August 30 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, priced at $19.99/€19.99/£15.99.

As Capcom explains, Resident Evil 4 for PS4 and Xbox One includes all the bonus content from the original 2005 GameCube release, as well as additional features added in later versions of the game, including the Separate Ways side story starring Ada Wong:

  • Separate Ways – The mysterious and elusive Ada Wong stars in her own side story, which fills in intriguing story gaps from Leon’s mission. 
  • Mercenaries Mode – the addicting evolution of RE3’s bonus mode – is awarded to players who complete the campaign, providing hours of replayability and lets fans play as Wesker, Hunk, and more iconic characters.
  • RE4 also boasts some of the most satisfying New Game Plus action ever, allowing players to bring their powerful arsenal, unlocked costumes, and other secret weapons into a fresh playthrough.
  • Other Content – Want to focus on yourself instead of protecting Ashley? Equip her with the knight armor costume and laugh as enemy’s attempt to attack her or carry her off with futility. Leon’s Chicago Typewriter – an insanely powerful Tommy Gun – also provides a fun power trip if you have enough cash to give the infamous Merchant.

Capcom didn’t say if Resident Evil 4 would target 1080p/60fps on the new consoles.

According to the original announcement, Resident Evil 4 will also receive a physical version on PS4 and Xbox One in North America. However, Capcom didn’t say if it would also be available on August 30.

In other Resident Evil news, the retail version of Resident Evil 5 for PS4/Xbox One launches next week on July 12.
