Resident Evil 4 Remake features much of the tense horror-action players remember from the game with a “state-of-the-art quality” suitable for 2023. However, the team is focused on preserving the essence of the original game and plans to provide a familiar experience that fans of the series remember.
Further, they offer a fresh new feeling with additional story elements. This is a “reimagining” of the original game’s storyline while keeping the essence of the direction with modernized graphics and updated controls.

Resident Evil Village is set a few years after the events of Resident Evil 7 Biohazard. We are reintroduced to Ethan and Mia, who have moved to a new location and are relatively happy. However, right when they thought things were going well, tragedy befalls them. Players then assume the role of a distraught Etan who seeks to uncover the truth of the mysteries affecting a once-peaceful village.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage brings the series back to its roots, where players will experience a more linear and story-focused adventure. The game is set in ninth-century Baghdad, where players will follow Basim Ibn Ishaq, a thief who joins the cause’s fight against a growing threat. Further, the title occurs roughly 300 years before the events of the first Assassin’s Creed, which focused on the life of Altair.
The staff previously discussed their narrative and gameplay design with this entry, highlighting how it’s really taking the series back to its origins in several ways, including implementing a nostalgic visual filter comprising a desaturated blue-gray color palette from the first game in the franchise.
Moreover, the team’s approach this time around is heavily inspired by the popular Ezio trilogy, with an emphasis on verticality, flow, and momentum.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage will launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on October 5, 2023.
