Resident Evil fans warned to be careful on social media as new game leaks


FANS are sending out a warning to others that footage of the Resident Evil 4 remake has leaked online.

The long-awaited release of Resident Evil 4 is just around the corner, launching on March 24, 2023.

The demo is out now.

However, images and footage has already appeared online, showing some big differences between the remake and the original 2005 release.

Those who want to play the upcoming game with fresh eyes, and save themselves from spoilers should shy away from social media.

Footage from the game has already been seen on social media platforms such as Reddit, TikTok, Twitter, and Instagram.

If you still want to use social media without seeing spoilers, there are some steps you can take to prevent seeing them.

Reddit users should unfollow gaming Subreddits, especially those that allow posting leaks and users.

Users on other platforms can all do something similar and also mute or block tags related to Resident Evil.

One user on Twitter warned others writing: “Just as a heads-up, Resident Evil 4 Remake is 100% in the wild, [I’ve] seen some clips people notified me about in a few places. 

“[I] won’t share them, but if [you] want to avoid spoilers, now’s the time to start treading carefully.

“While I’m sure Capcom will start scrubbing stuff soon, my suggestion going forward is just be careful on social media & video sharing sites.

“Some with auto recommendations, such as Twitter, TikTok, Instagram, etc, may be the ones to be most careful of.”

Those who want to wait and experience Resident Evil 4 for themselves can download the demo, which is available now.

This will allow you to play the first section of the game, and you will be able to continue your save once it is released.
