Resident Evil 4 Remake Pre-Order Guide

After launching on nearly every platform released over the last 18 years (most recently Meta Quest 2 in a very good VR port), Capcom completely re-engineered the 2005 games resident Evil 4 to terrorize more platforms. It’s available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Windows PC on Friday, March 24, 2023.

This latest version looks promising, with stellar graphics and the return of familiar characters and locations. While many (myself included) feel the original RE4 has aged well, it seems safe to trust Capcom’s handling when remaking its own beloved games. 2019 RE2 and 2020 RE3 they were faithful recreations, but new enough to be worth buying again.

If you’d like to pre-order the game to get it on launch day, we’ve got all the links and info on the various editions below (sadly, no chainsaw controller this time around).

Better RE4 pre-order agreement

As usual, PC gamers can snag the lowest price ahead of launch day. Fanatical and Green Man Gaming are slashing nearly $10 off the game’s retail cost, which is a great pre-order incentive. If not, you can pay full price of $59.99 for the game on Steam (via Humble Bundle). Observation: All copies can only be redeemed on Steam.

Pre-ordering on PC gives you two digital perks, including a golden briefcase that increases the drop rate of pesetas (the in-game currency), a handgun ammo charm hanging in the briefcase that gives you the chance to craft handgun bullets from bonus.

How much resident Evil 4 cost on PS5 and Xbox?

On all platforms, the price of resident Evil 4 remake is $59.99. When you buy on PlayStation, you get both PS4 and PS5 versions. But bad news for Xbox One owners: the remake of RE4 is coming to Xbox Series X and Series S consoles only.

Pre-ordering on any platform gets you the two digital perks mentioned above: a golden briefcase and a handgun ammo charm for the briefcase. PlayStation buyers will also receive a mini soundtrack with their pre-order. Lastly, you can get a free Steelbook case if you buy the game at Best Buy.

where to order the resident Evil 4 deluxe edition

There is a “deluxe” edition coming to all supported platforms priced at $69.99. And yes, it’s cheaper to order on PC. You will receive various cosmetic add-ons throughout the game. Digital pre-order perks include two extras you won’t get with the standard version of the game, including a classic style for the briefcase that increases the drop rate of gunpowder crafting materials, plus a “green herb” amulet for the briefcase that increases health recovery from green herbal items.

You will also receive the Extra DLC pack, containing the following digital items (to view screenshots of the DLC items, visit Capcom’s homepage, click on “pre-order” in the upper right corner of the screen, followed by “deluxe edition,” and scroll down):

  • Leon and Ashley’s “casual” outfits
  • Leon and Ashley’s “romantic” costumes
  • Leon “hero” costume and visual filter
  • Leon “Villain” Costume and Visual Filter
  • Leon “sports” sunglasses
  • Weapon “Sentinel Nine”
  • Weapon “Skull Shaker”
  • Expansion of the Treasure Map
  • Soundtrack swap from the “original version”

where to get the resident Evil 4 Collector’s Edition

The ultimate package for resident Evil 4 is only available for PlayStation and Xbox, not for PC. It’s a huge package, costing $249.99. It contains all of the digital perks listed above, plus some exclusive physical items. It comes with a steel book, a Leon S. Kennedy figurine, an art book, a map, and a collector’s box.

Unfortunately, Collector’s Edition stock is hard to come by. But when it’s in stock, you’ll be able to get it from the links below (I hope it makes it to more retailers than just GameStop).

Can I buy Leon’s leather bomber jacket?

Wow, that’s an incredibly specific question, but yes, you can! For the RE4 remake, Capcom built an in-game model of the brown sheepskin leather jacket made by Schott NYC, and it retails for $1,495. Observation: Buying him may or may not involve him in a high-stakes international operation to rescue the US president’s son.
