The modders behind the Resident Evil 4 HD Project are just killing it with these new textures

They're up to The Island

For years now, a small but dedicated team of modders has been toiling away to enhance the PC version of Resident Evil 4 with crisp new textures. Capcom released a self-described "Ultimate HD Edition" on Steam back in 2014, but it wasn't exactly an across-the-board revamp -- some textures were upgraded, but not everything got the same amount of love. That's where Albert and Cris come in.

The two modders are striving to create the best-looking Resident Evil 4 possible, and they just passed a major milestone. Rather fittingly, a new release of the Resident Evil 4 HD Project is out in time for Friday the 13th. This latest version includes new textures for the game's final major area, The Island.

The mod project isn't done yet, but today is a big step. According to Cris, there's still work left to do on "enemies, NPCs, playable characters, weapon and item improvements, [and] final refinements."

Still! The end is in sight.
