Resident Evil 4 Remake Has New Game Plus & Photo Mode; More Details Shared
Capcom’s upcoming Resident Evil 4 Remake will feature both a New Game Plus as well as a Photo Mode, based on the latest information.
In Game Informer’s video that covers 80 rapid questions on the Resident Evil 4 Remake, director Yasuhiro Ampo and producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi revealed that the game will feature a New Game Plus as well as a Photo Mode.
It was also revealed that the the Village featured in the Remake is bigger than that of the original. On the other hand, the Island has big level design changes from the original, but in terms of size it may end up being about the same length as the original island. It was also stated that Ada will have a major role to play in the remake.
It was also stated by the developers that there are “almost no” QTEs in the game. In addition, this time around, players will receive snake meat instead of chicken eggs for killing snakes.
Regarding a knife-only run, the developers mention that they believe a knife-only run is almost possible, and someone on the development team has already tried it. However, there will be a few instances where some other weapon is required. It was also stated that the game will not offer an optional first-person mode.
With regards to the available control scheme options, the developers stated that there’s a control scheme that emulates Resident Evil 4’s original control scheme. However, they said that it’s not entirely the same, since Leon can now perform new actions not featured in the original.
Previously, it was revealed that the Resident Evil 4 Remake will include brand new treasure collectibles, though they are locked behind DLC. The Xbox Store features a Treasure Map DLC for the Resident Evil 4 Remake, which makes brand new treasure collectibles available in the game. With this map expansion, additional treasures will be placed throughout the game world. Some of these treasures can only be obtained by purchasing the Treasure Map expansion.
