Original PC Port of ‘Resident Evil’ Now Available on GOG, ‘Resident Evil 2’ and ‘Resident Evil 3: Nemesis’ Coming Soon [Trailer]

While it’s not quite the Resident Evil that many are hoping for from Capcom, it’s still a welcome sight. After reports surfaced earlier this month, GOG has revealed that the original PC port of Resident Evil is now available on the service, with Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis coming later.

The 1996 port (which infamously contains the cut content from the Resident Evil: Director’s Cut that was supposed to be in that version of the game) features all of its content intact, as well as “quality of life improvements” and enhanced compatibility for modern systems.

In fact, GOG has listed off those compatibility enhancements:

  • Full compatibility with Windows 10 and Windows 11.
  • All 4 localizations of the game included (English, German, French, Japanese).
  • Improved DirectX game renderer.
  • New rendering options (Windowed Mode, Vertical Synchronization Control, Gamma Correction, Integer Scaling, Anti-Aliasing and more).
  • Improved timing of the cutscenes.
  • Improved game video player.
  • Improved game registry settings.
  • Issue-free game exit and task switching.
  • Full support for modern controllers (Sony DualSense, Sony DualShock4, Microsoft Xbox Series, Microsoft Xbox One, Microsoft Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch, Logitech F series and many more) with optimal button binding regardless of the hardware and wireless mode.

No date has been given for the when Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 would hit GOG, but there will be a bundle available that contains all three games.

As a bonus, GOG has teamed up with Suzi Hunter, also known as TheSphereHunter, for an exclusive look at the history of the franchise and the story of its originals’ revival, while interviewing GOG’s technical producer Adam Ziolkowski, as well as head of business development Bartosz Kwietniewski.
