These details and more come courtesy of Game Informer’s latest issue(opens in new tab), which goes hands-on with two of Resident Evil 4 Remake’s chapters. The story reveals a bunch of new information about the upcoming remake, but arguably the biggest news is that you’ll be able to collect and complete side quests, knives will break after a lot of use, and that the original game’s QTE sections have been adapted for a more modern format.
Sidequests in Resident Evil 4 Remake will show up on the map as blue flyers.
As for QTEs, Game Informer writes that Capcom viewed them as “antiquated” and thus replaced them with mechanics more befitting of a modern AAA horror title. Apparently the knife fights are where you’ll most notice this change, as instead of a series of QTEs you’ll need to use your knife to parry attacks – just use that move sparingly as, similar to Resident Evil 2 Remake, your knives will have limited durability and will eventually break.
Resident Evil 4 Remake launches on March 24.
