The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports of Resident Evil 4, one of the most acclaimed games of all time, will arrive Aug. 30, publisher Capcom announced today.

That’s a few weeks earlier than expected — when Capcom announced its plans for current-generation versions of Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6, the company said it would release the oldest game’s port this fall.

The other two are already available: Resident Evil 6 launched on PS4 and Xbox One at the end of March, while Resident Evil 5 arrived last week. Like those ports, the current-generation versions of Resident Evil 4 will cost $19.99 in North America, €19.99 in Europe and £15.99 in the U.K.

Resident Evil 4 tells the story of Leon Kennedy’s mission to rescue Ashley Graham, the president’s daughter, who has apparently been kidnapped by a Spanish cult known as Los Illuminados. The game debuted in 2005 on GameCube and then PlayStation 2, and marked a turning point in the third-person shooter genre with its over-the-shoulder camera.

The PS4 and Xbox One ports of Resident Evil 4 will come with all of the original game’s bonus content, as well as elements that Capcom added in later versions. That includes the side story featuring Ada Wong, which was first released in the game’s PS2 port, and the Mercenaries mode.
