CLASSIC HORROR COMES TO THE PLAYSTATION®3 WITH RESIDENT EVIL™: CHRONICLES HD COLLECTION
Resident Evil™: The Umbrella Chronicles And Resident Evil™: The Darkside Chronicles Bring The Survival Horror Experience To Life With PlayStation®Move
London, UK – March 13th, 2012 - Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today confirmed that Resident Evil : Chronicles HD Collection will be coming to the PlayStation®3 across Europe and North America in June 2012 as a digital download. Featuring Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, this Collection will be available to purchase from the Playstation®Store, with each title available to download individually at a later date.
Remastered for the PlayStation®3 with stunning HD graphics and featuring PlayStation®Move compatibility, Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection will offer gamers the chance to relive the Resident Evil story so far. The intense shooter gameplay from both titles is back as players attempt to survive the horror alone or with a friend in co-op mode, earning trophies as they go. PlayStation®Move technology brings the action to life, with the player using the PlayStation®Move motion controller as their weapon. The title can also be enjoyed with the wireless controller, providing seamless gameplay without a PlayStation®Move motion control accessory.
Revisiting past plots from the series and exposing Umbrella Corporation’s actions, The Umbrella Chronicles features eight playable characters, including Rebecca Chambers, Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine. As seen previously in the Nintendo Wii™ version the title also features a brand new chapter in Resident Evil history. The Darkside Chronicles plot takes players back to the story of Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield trying to escape the nightmares of Raccoon City, whilst finally revealing the truth behind Leon and Krauser’s feud.
but doing rather well in a very busy period with some big hitters (COD, Fallout 4, Star Wars and Halo 5) (11 minutes ago)
@jmd749: It is a really stunning game, ignored just because it went timed exclusive. A massive shame. It is selling rather steadily well though. It's not pulling the launch numbers of TR 2013 in March (12 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: Exactly. Jessica Jones is a drama. But there is almost no story. It just drags on. I hope the second half delivers more. (34 minutes ago)
What I am interested in is this: will the PC and PS4 releases have all the DLC bundled in? if they do, I will opt for the PC version. I want to support the franchise. (46 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: The game has no issues with framerate, I had absolutely NONE. Aliaising - I will give you that yes but it does nothing to detract from the game (47 minutes ago)
So I believe both PC and PS4 versions will be great. Plus the Xbox One version has some framerate and tearing issues, according to Digital Foundry, so I suspect those will be eliminated in the process (1 Hour ago)
As for PC, if they port it correctly, it might be significantly improved. I believe it's Nixxes who's going to work on the PC and PS4 versions. They are as great or better than Bluepoint Games. (1 Hour ago)
