Capcom has unveiled that the HD edition of Resident Evil 4 is now available via Steam and retail stores for $19.99/€19.99. In Resident Evil 4, special agent Leon S. Kennedy is sent on a mission to rescue the U.S. President's daughter who has been kidnapped. Finding his way to a rural village in Europe, he faces new threats that are a departure from the traditional lumbering zombie enemies of the earlier installments in the series. Leon battles horrific new creatures infested by a new threat called Las Plagas and faces off against an aggressive group of enemies including mind-controlled villagers that are tied to Los Illuminados, the mysterious cult which is behind the abduction.
This latest edition boasts a complete visual overhaul with sharpened texts and textures on characters, backgrounds and in-game objects. Fully optimized for the wide screen, the title features Steam Achievements, Steam Cloud, Steam Trading Cards, global leaderboards, and full game controller support. Subtitle support in English, French, Italian and Spanish as well as previously released bonus content such as the Separate Ways epilogue is also included.
