Resident Evil: Director’s Cut was initially released as compensation for the delayed release of Resident Evil 2, but it became a widely enjoyed spectacle. The title featured various changes and modifications to the original PlayStation one classic, Resident Evil. The installment was the first major re-release in the franchise.
In complement to the initial version of the game, the Director’s Cut included a new “Arranged Mode” and a “Beginner Mode,” which was aimed to target the experts/speedrunners of the game. The arranged mode was created to confound the pros who had learned ways to exploit the game.
Moreover, the default costumes for Jill, Chris, and Rebecca are varied, new camera angles are integrated, and the placement of key items and enemies is different. On the other hand, Beginner Mode added features like extra life and ammunition.
Fanciers of the Resident Evil franchise will get to enjoy the experience all over again after a couple of decennia. It appears that Resident Evil: Director’s Cut is making an unsuspected return, according to a recent product listing on the PlayStation Store for Hong Kong.
Resident Evil: Director’s Cut is accessible for PlayStation Plus Deluxe subscription members. Gamers have hailed that title is also starting to be available in more regional stores. Although, the game cannot be purchased at the moment.
The debut of Director’s Cut brings forth a multitude of features like quick save and rewind, as cited in the page, “Experience Resident Evil Director’s Cut originally released on the PlayStation® console, enhanced with up-rendering, rewind, quick save, and custom video filters.”
Furthermore, the title is supposedly returning on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, as mentioned in the disclaimer, “This title has been converted from the PlayStation® version to the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®5 consoles and provides newly added features.”
There is also a warning provided in case the game does not function as intended. Converting a PlayStation 1 port to the last and next generation is no easy feat, after all. The disclaimer adds, “Consequently, there may be times where the title plays differently from the PlayStation® version, or where some features may cause the title to not function properly.”
All in all, one of the supposed returning classics is already confirmed. Developers have recently been focusing on promoting old classics on next-generation consoles to reignite the nostalgia among gamers, both new and the ones already acquainted with the franchises.
