Capcom's highly-anticipated remake of the iconic 2005 survival horror game “Resident Evil 4” made its debut yesterday and is already proving to be a great success. In just eight hours of its release, the game was being played on Steam by 116,000 players simultaneously, which broke the activity record achieved by the previous installment of the series, Resident Evil Village. 

This number has only kept rising over the course of the day, and two hours ago, it reached 147 thousand concurrent players on Steam. Such numbers prove that the series is as popular as ever, with each new installment further expanding its fanbase on the platform. This is in stark contrast to the reception of Resident Evil 3, which was not as warmly welcomed as the other titles in the series. 

Resident Evil 4 is also being praised by users who have already tried the game. 95% of the reviews are overwhelmingly positive, citing the captivating and intense atmosphere of the game, its incredible visuals, and the replayability of its levels. It is also worth of mention that the game was released for PC, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. 

Moreover, Resident Evil 4 was a game-changer when it was first released in 2005. It was praised for its improved close-quarters combat, cinematic camera angles, and horror atmosphere, keeping players on the edge of their seats. The remake retains all these features while making the game look better and more polished.

In conclusion, we can, without a doubt, say that Capcom has done a fantastic job with the remake of the iconic survival horror game Resident Evil 4. Not only has the game been able to break series records on Steam, but it has also been met with overwhelmingly positive reception. We can only look forward to the future of the series with anticipation as Capcom continues to bring us high-quality games.
