This is the cheapest edition of the game that you can buy, and it basically nets you the license for the game alone if you digitally or the disc if you buy physically. There is nothing additional that you get by purchasing the standard edition.

This is not an edition that you can purchase; it is just a demo that you can try out before purchasing the game. The demo takes you through a small part of the village and makes you familiar with the mechanics of the game. Playing the demo will basically help you decide whether you want to purchase the full game or not.

The Best RE4 Remake Edition In My Opinion

Most of my reruns were possible only due to the Deluxe Edition bonus items, which was, thankfully, the edition I had pre-ordered. The addition of new costumes for both Leon and Ashely paired with two new weapons in the Deluxe edition adds more incentive for replay.

I even loved using the gameplay filters that you get with this edition, and these filters completely changed the aesthetic, making RE4R feel completely new even while replaying. Getting the original soundtrack of Re4 with the Deluxe edition is the cherry on top of all the other benefits.

This concludes our guide on all of the Resident Evil 4 Remake editions that are available for purchase. We have explained every single edition of the game in complete detail and have included the bonuses you get by purchasing each.
