Announced earlier this week, the Steam version of Resident Evil 4 is atonement for the god-awful Windows port released in 2007. Capcom's released some comparison shots showing off how much better the game looks when the textures don't look like they were painted with mud.

According to a post on Capcom's Unity blog, the SD textures will still be in place when the Steam version of one of the best Resident Evil games drops on February 28, giving players the ability to switch between them on the fly. I'm guessing that's a feature that will only be used once for the novelty value, because ugh.

Oddly enough, some of the SD textures seem to feature a little more detail than the HD ones. Check out this fence, for instance. The SD version features all of these nifty little scuff marks, like something's been scratching at the wood.

Capcom also released a couple of shots showing the game running at 2560x1600 resolution, for those of you with ridiculous monitors.

Here comes the extensive lectures and bragging from the PC Master Race!

Honestly I have no issues playing this on the PS2 and Gamecube. I tried it out recently and was surprised how well it holds up. It should be great to eventually get this on a cheap sale on the PC though. Maybe Capcom realizes they should hold back their franchise from going too action oriented and go for slow burn thriller feel of RE1-4.
