The hit zombie-survival game is getting an HD make-over and will be released for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 consoles and PC in the first quarter of 2015, Capcom has announced.

The game, popularly known as REmake, was originally released in 2002 and was a remake of the original Resident Evil version for PlayStation 1.

The remake for 'REmake' may be downloaded directly from the Capcom store upon its release.

Some changes that fans will notice on the REmake includes 1080p visuals, improved character movements and appearance, background enhancements, unique "scrolling" camera, enhanced 5.1 surround sound support, and seamless gameplay, most of all.

While the improved character, heightened visuals, and background appearances may seem self-explanatory, the new scrolling camera feature may surprise those who have gotten quite accustomed to the PS1 and 2002 remake versions of the game.

The scrolling camera will help in integrating the original's 4x3 view into 16:9 display ratio. Furthermore, when characters Chris or Jill are moved out of frame, the camera will slowly pan, following their movement.

In widescreen mode, cut-off parts of the game will smoothly scroll into view to follow the character's immediate position.

The original features including "tank controls" will be carried over into the remake.

As of this writing, Western prices for the REmake have not yet been announced.

Meanwhile, for those who would rather play the latest entry in the Resident Evil series, Resident Evil 7 is currently rumored to be in development.
