Survival horror games are proof that grim creatures don’t necessarily have to scare you away. They can also create an immersive experience, and the Resident Evil series is a good example.

Resident Evil began for donkey’s years. It was over a quarter of a century ago when the very first game of the series hit the market. That was in 1996, and it was the best thing since sliced bread at that time for those loving the genre. You probably wouldn’t be playing that game right now.

You can get the PS5 versions for Resident Evil 7, 3, and 2 via the PlayStation Store

Sony makes the big announcement via the PlayStation blog that those willing to play PlayStation 5 versions of Resident Evil 7, Resident Evil 3, as well as Resident Evil 2 will have that chance by downloading the games from the PlayStation Store.

The upgraded games feature functionalities such as 3D Audio, ray-traced visuals, and DualSense wireless controller support. Those are features that are very specific for the PlayStation 5 console.
