I think it’s fair to say that there’s a certain amount of almost unreasonable admiration that goes into certain fan gaming projects. Resident Evil 4 HD Project is the latest example of such a thing, with the creators attempting to visually enhance each and every graphical texture in the game to represent a “true” HD version of the popular game’s recent PC release. From starting out about a year ago, we come to the end of 2014 with the team releasing an early preview of The Village area, available now.

When I say “unreasonable admiration,” I mean it in the most positive way possible. The amount of effort it has taken so far out of the very small team, including traveling around the world to take source photographs of original assets for use and upscaling images up to 16 times their original graphical fidelity, is nothing short of remarkable. With a playable, working modification of the game running at 60 FPS with those graphics, there’s an inherent promise that it may be completed.
Check out the trailer for The Village release below. You can follow the progress of the Resident Evil 4 HD Project on Twitter, on Facebook, on their website or even in the NeoGAF thread. Here’s to hoping for a full 2015 release of the project!
