‘Resident Evil 7’ Supports Cross-Platform Saves & 4K Resolution

“Resident Evil 7” has re-invented the franchise and teken it in a new direction, but the surprises which Capcom has for its fans do not end here. The game will also feature some innovative gameplay technologies and will support Ultra-HD settings.

Gamespot shares some interesting information concerning those, who plan on experiencing Capcom’s new horror on both PC and XBOX. The game will support cross-platform saves. This means that saves made on the XBOX could be imported into a PC version of the game and vice versa. This is part of Microsoft’s “Play Anywhere” program. For those not familiar with it, it is a program started by Microsoft to incorporate use of both PC and XBOX. An example of it is that buying a “Play Anywhere” supported game on the XBOX automatically adds a PC copy on the user’s account.

More good news for computer gamers come from PC Gamer. They inform fans of the survival horror series that the game will be available on 4K resolution on PC and PS4 Pro. This is some amazing news for players with High-End PC’s who want to experience what the game has got to offer in full. Just be careful, as fear may fast lead to regret.

IGN points out that the cross-platform saves in PC-XBOX compatibility are kind of a strange move from CAPCOM. This comes from taking in consideration the fact that almost all of its PR campaign and promotion has been targeting the PS platform. “The Beginning Hour” which is the demo for the new “Resident Evil” game was released solely on Sony’s entertainment platform. The VR Kitchen Experience was also targeting PS users where the VR port to the game will be based on Sony’s VR headset.

No matter Capcom’s moves one fact is certain, the game will be released on 24 January, 2017 and it will change the series, been it for good or bad. What do you think about it? Share your opinion in the comment section below.
