Resident Evil 4 HD Project is a massive mod for Resident Evil 4 Ultimate HD Edition (PC), designed to fix the flaws of the official re-releases by refreshing all textures, models and cutscenes.

The modification has been in the works for over seven years now, but the wait is coming to an end. Enthusiasts have announced that Resident Evil 4 HD Project will be available on February 2, 2022.

Improvements in the Resident Evil 4 HD Project include a viewing angle adjustment, a working vertical sync option, the introduction of the blur effect and depth of field that are missing in the remasters from the versions for the Nintendo GameCube and Wii.

In addition, Resident Evil 4 HD Project will fix incorrect aspect ratio when playing at ultra-wide resolution, simplify QTE at 60 fps and fix key remapping.

The scale of the Resident Evil 4 HD Project cannot be overestimated. Many of the textures in the mod were created based on photographs that Marin took in European countries, traveling to the places of inspiration of the original game development team.

Resident Evil 4 was released in 2005 on the GameCube, and was subsequently ported to, among others, PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Now, according to rumors, a full-fledged remake is in development, and in October the project received a VR version.
