Resident Evil 4 puts you in the shoes of federal agent Leon S. Kennedy, who is tasked with rescuing the President's daughter. He tracks her down to a remote village in rural Spain, but finds a dangerous cult with terrible secrets and a large number of followers standing in his way. RE4, primarily a survival horror title, features third-person shooting with an “over-the-shoulder” perspective – a common gameplay trope in action titles that was first introduced in the original Resident Evil 4.

In addition to the RE4 remake, Capcom also released Resident Evil Village, a 2021 first-person survival horror title, on October 30 for iPhone 15 Pro phones and iPads equipped with M1 and above.
