One of the scariest environments in the franchise now with realistic graphics
The first title in the Resident Evil franchise was a game-changer in the genre that began with Alone in the Dark. The game received a Game Cube remake in 2002 and became one of the best horror games ever. Now fans want to make it even more real with Unreal Engine 5.”Biohazard RE1 Classic Edition” It’s already in advanced development, as you can see in the trailer below.
This “remake” aims to leave the game exactly as it was originally, that is, without changing the gameplay mechanics, only modeling the characters, monsters and scenarios. This last element already shows good results, with a more realistic and dangerous environment.
The developer explains that “the project will be 100% fixed camera, will respect the classic style of the game and will be slow as before”. This was evident in the trailer, with the slow zombies, the time between shots was very slow, but in reality the classic Resident Evil titles were like that.
The person behind Biohazard RE1 Classic Edition has stated that they may consider an over-the-shoulder mode like it was after Resident Evil 4, but makes it clear that it’s not a focus at the moment. This points to another fan work featuring Resident Evil with this type of camera.
This other project is bolder as it covers Raccoon City and the police station before Bravo Team arrives in the woods where Spencer’s mansion is. All this with characters and zombie models from the recent remakes of Resident Evil 2 and 3.
