Resident Evil 4 Looks Amazing Inside Far Cry 5

Resident Evil 4 Looks Amazing Inside Far Cry 5

Is Resident Evil 4's Ramon Salazar secretly a part of Far Cry 5's Project at Eden Gate? Well, not quite. Although the idea of a Resident Evil and Far Cry crossover might sound like a brilliant idea, it's currently confined to the pages of fan fiction. The colourful world of 2018's Far Cry 5 might seem a million miles away from the smog-choked backdrop of Resident Evil 4, but that hasn't stopped one horror hound adding a touch of that vile village to Hope County, Montana. 

While we wait for Capcom to announce its Resident Evil 4 remake - come on, it's definitely coming - impatient players have taken to adding Resident Evil 4 to whatever they can. For the time being, all eyes are on Resident Evil Village as the eighth main series game takes us to another Medieval-inspired town of terrors. With Village conjuring up memories of Resident Evil 4, there's been a lot of talk about the beloved GameCube game from 2006. Chris Redfield might not be dropping into Far Cry 5, but we can see the 2018 game's Deputy visit a whole new locale that captures the spirit of Capcom's shuffling zombie series.

 

How can you play Resident Evil 4 in Far Cry 5?

Making the most of Fary Cry 5's potential, YouTuber Mojo Swoptops has rebuilt Resident Evil 4's starting village inside Far Cry 5. Using the Far Cry 5  map editor, Mojo took us back to RE4 in style. It wasn't an easy feat, with the artist explaining the project took around four hours to complete for a five-minute video. Mojo started with the sprawling trees, before adding the farm compound, church, and cemetery. As you can see, the central bell tower looks just like it did all those years ago. It's a pretty faithful recreation that takes care of every little detail. At the end of the video, Mojo even changed the weather system to add that signature RE4 spookiness. 

Sadly, it's just one long animated shot that doesn't let us see how the Resident Evil 4 village plays in Far Cry 5. It would've also been great to add a bit of Resident Evil 7 to the mix and swap out RE4's popularised over-the-shoulder camera for a terrifying first-person perspective. Even though RE4 became one of the most iconic games of all time thanks to its unique camera view, we've often wondered what the Las Plagas-infected villagers would look like in first-person. 

 

Will we see more of Resident Evil 4 in Far Cry 5?

Games like Minecraft are usually the most common to mod other titles into, but Far Cry 5 could be a new place to bring your old favourites to life. Mojo has previously tackled everything from Return to Castle Wolfenstein's dungeons to The Legends of Zelda: Ocarina of Time's Gerudo Valley in Far Cry 5Resident Evil Village is out in May, so it will be interesting to see whether Mojo adds Castle Dimitrescu to Hope County.

Only recently, one modder found space in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and added 2011's Skyward Sword to the beloved Switch game. With plenty of room in Breath of the Wild, maybe Mojo Swoptops could put the Resident Evil 4 village in Hyrule. We've seen plenty of zombies in the Zelda games, so why not merge the two worlds? Mojo has already added the RE4 cemetery and village to Far Cry 5, meaning the next logical choice would be the Del Lago lake. 

Following Far Cry 5's clearly impressive map builder, players are expecting (the delayed) Far Cry 6 will have a similar system to give the fictional island of Yara a facelift. As Capcom continues to play coy about the possibility of a proper next-gen remastering of Resident Evil 4, we're left hiding behind the cushions ahead of Resident Evil Village's release and the franchise opening the doors to Castle Dimitrescu.
