Resident Evil 4 Remake, should we stick with PS4 or switch to PS5?

Japanese video game company Capcom has released a demo version of Resident Evil 4 Remake. Since its debut in 1996, Resident Evil has become one of Capcom’s most successful titles. Ahead of the official launch date set for March 24, 2023, the Japanese video game maker has released a demo on all supported platforms.

Resident Evil 4 Remake will be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series and PC. This time the Xbox One is left behind for the Remake Edition. So, you may need to upgrade your old Xbox if you want to enjoy the new version of the legendary Resident Evil game.

Owners of older Xbox Ones won’t get the new version of the remake, but PS4 owners are in luck. However, the PS5 comes with improved specs over its predecessor. How will the difference in specifications affect the overall gameplay and visual quality of Resident Evil 4 Remake? Let’s find out the difference.

Resident Evil 4 Remake gameplay difference on PS4 and PS5

When testing overall game performance and visual quality, the PS4 did better than expected. The gaming graphics and gaming performance on the PS4 is truly on par with the PS5.

In the side-by-side video, you can see that the PS4 version works the same as the PS5. Although there may be some differences, these differences are very difficult to notice. You can only spot the difference if you watch two consoles play the game side by side. Looking closer, you’ll notice that the PS5 version has a higher resolution texture, better shadow quality, and better overall performance than the PS4.

Other effects such as depth of field and motion blur also work with better quality on the PS5 version than on the PS4 version. Also, when comparing the 4k checkerboard resolution on PS4 and PS5, you will notice that the resolution on PS5 has improved overall.

Another thing you may notice on PS4 is that the game runs at 30fps in resolution mode and 60fps in performance mode. The PS5 is still running in performance mode at 4k dynamic resolution, while the PS4 is at 1080p, which is a big gap.

On the PS5, Xbox, and PC versions, you can enable ray tracing in resolution mode, with an additional option to improve hair rendering as well. Another obvious change that you may notice concerns the quality of the environment. The quality of fog and other environmental effects on PS4 is lower. This causes the PS4 version of Resident Evil 4 Remake to lose some of its atmospheric qualities. Resident Evil 4 Remake

The PS5 version also comes with PSVR 2 exclusive support. This includes support for haptic feedback such as when Leon walks across a bridge. It also comes with adaptive triggers that work in actions like aiming and firing weapons.

Is Resident Evil 4 Remake better on PS5 than PS4?

Honestly, Resident Evil 4 Remake works very well on PS4 and PS5 in the most important scenarios. As I said earlier, it’s hard to tell the difference unless you compare them side by side. Some environmental effects may look better on PS5, but that doesn’t mean they’re completely unavailable on PS4.

Switching from PS4 to PS5 mainly because of this game is not recommended. Unless you want to completely immerse yourself in the game on PSVR 2. PSVR 2 support is exclusive to PS5, which really should be the main difference here. Other than that, the PS4 handles Resident Evil 4 Remake very well.
