Resident Evil 4 Remake: Exclusive Chapter 5 Gameplay Walkthrough

The Resident Evil 4 remake is Game Informer’s cover story for February, and as part of our ongoing features, we’re sharing an extended gameplay walkthrough of the game’s fifth chapter, set right after Leon meets Ashley.

Marcus Stewart, and Alex Van Aken played this chapter at Capcom’s headquarters for our cover story. You’ll get a great look at the section we played as well as our commentary for added context. The footage includes extended looks at the church and cemetery sequences, a demonstration of combat and exploration, capping off with a larger slice of the chaotic cabin battle with Luis Serra.

    Editor’s note: We asked for gameplay without background music. Any background music you hear was placed there by me, but all of the music is from the RE4 remake.

      Psalm 22 “My God My God why have you forsaken me?…. bulls of bashan surround me they pierce my hands and feet…. they cast lots for my garments… ““He trusts in the Lord,” they say,
          “let the Lord rescue him.(R)
      Let him deliver him,(S)
          since he delights(T) in him.” “I am poured out like water”  etc like with other passages in the psalms, genesis, (including theophany appearances in the torah) Isaiah, Zechariah, Daniel, Proverbs etc are considered messianic in rabbinic Judaism as the suffering servant messiah Ben Joseph, and to Christianity as Yeshua, Jesus bless you ❤
      Edit: To expand on this is of course Isaiah 53 where you have the servant being crushed by God as an offering for sin for others, who dies and sees life and his seed afterwards, who dies with thieves and in a rich man’s tomb, and who was despised and rejected, so why there is a common view of two messiahs, Ben yosef and Ben David, one messiah as the suffering servant and another as the conqueror who sets up the kingdom. Isaiah 52 the messiah draws Israel back to himself.

      Some fun and sad things are like people would say Jesus didn’t exist despite Tacitus, Suetonius, Pliny the younger, Lucian etc and the apostles writings and the successors/church fathers of the apostles/bishops writings and josephus, because “Nazareth doesn’t exist” until of course Nazareth was discovered, or another one, “there was no synagogue in capnernaum” until we found it, or Thomas Payne in age of reason “Bible is false because there were no kings during Jesus’s time” until we found King Herod Agrippa’s coins, or “Jesus wasn’t buried in a tomb because crucifixion victims weren’t buried in tombs” until we found crucifixion victims with the nails still in tombs in tombs.
      More cool things, are Jesus sweating blood in the garden of Gethsemane, this is a real phenomenon called Hematidrosis where death row inmates sweat blood, also another when Jesus is pierced and water and blood come out this actually happens when water builds around the lungs, it confused some early church fathers on the spiritual meaning, but it’s a real phenomenon that occurs as well. Many rabbis into gematria etc say there is a curse upon reading Daniel 9 because it says Messiah The Prince must come and bring in eternal righteousness before the destruction of Solomon’s temple, no wonder they say that as then if Messiah didn’t come before 70 a.d. there is no messiah, those who have divided messiah into two were confused if the messiah would come riding on a donkey or horse, so the two messiahs, as opposed to the jews who believe in Jesus and himself, who state himself and two arrivals. Of course this is why Islam falls quickly because while they call Jesus messiah they don’t understand what it means, and Muhammad of course denied the historical fact of Jesus dying by crucifixion (Which besides tacitus mentioning pontius pilate doing it to him, we even have an inscription that was uncovered oh pilate and dates lining up with his time being the procurator/prefect over Jerusalem) besides Muhammad being the total opposite of Jesus, Muhammad had sex with his child bride Aisha who was nine, he beheaded and crucified people, said not to trust jews and Christians, he had Ethiopian slaves and called them raisin heads, he called jews monkeys and rats, he slaughtered villages and the wives of families he killed said you can take them and have sex with them, he got caught having sex with his slave by Aisha and said he would not do it anymore then conveniently “Allah” comes and says it’s fine and he can, he’s a textbook false prophet, with of course takiyah being they will lie to you about what I said above, Islam is meant to subjugate the world I’d into belief by force, if you don’t convert you must pay a tax, if you don’t pay it you die. Allah has no love for unbelievers unlike Jesus who loves his enemies and we are meant to love all even to death, I’d write more but youtube doesn’t like long messages, with eastern thought eternal universe doesn’t fit the mold because and infinite amount of successive events becoming then impossible to have the present, we would never reach today because we would always have a yesterday or event before this moment, an immaterial, spaceless, timeless, mind (agency) bringing space-time into reality, is the best explanation for why anything exists including someone as amazing and as lovely as yourself 😊 So the disciples who say “For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty.” And “13If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. 14And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is worthless, and so is your faith. 15In that case, we are also exposed as false witnesses about God. For we have testified about God that He raised Christ from the dead, but He did not raise Him if in fact the dead are not raised.
      16For if the dead are not raised, then not even Christ has been raised. 17And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. 18Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. 19If our hope in Christ is for this life alone, we are to be pitied more than all men. But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.” Since the witnesses knew whether or not they were lying and knew what it would mean to continue to say he did in fact rise and is the Messiah and God in the flesh then yes I believe them as The Messiah had to come during that time, a mind/agency creating the universe is the best cause for reality, Jesus is the most moral, truthful and charismatic and loving and honest person there is, and the most important and influential, (Buddha said he was still searching for truth, Jesus say, “I am the truth, the way and the life”)  Jesus gives us love and salvation as a gift without earned merit by us, not working our way to the truth or God or eternal destiny through every other religious and spiritual framework, he loves you and cares so much for you before he created you and wants a living relationship with you here and now not just after you die 😊 There’s a million other things to cover that I want to say but this is probably a good stopping point but Jesis wants to remove the shadow in your life and Jesus wants you as you are right now he wants your heart and to live in you and you to know his love personally 😊 I had people prophesy over me very specific things nobody else knew about my past, things I was thinking or experienced even just the day before, Jesus healed me of sleep paralysis I had for years, depression and loneliness, I had a dream of a woman named Heather and a voice telling me their dad had died, a couple days later i meet them and they tell me about how they had just lost their dad that week, I feel God telling me to sit down and close my eyes and I see an outline of someone going to the bathroom very bizarre, then shortly after someone out of the blue asking me to pray for them as they are having trouble going to the bathroom, another was I ask Jesus alone “are you my buddy?” A couple hours later someone contacts me and they say “Yes Jesus is saying yes he is your buddy” another time was I obsessing a little over this blue suit and someone prophecies “I see you in this blue suit” etc, another time I was testing this whole thing and I’m about to be prophecied over and I have my Google notes out I had tried writing out a little story and it was about a fire and forest being burnt down and I ask God to confirm if he wants me to write this and sort of as a test because everything had been scary accurate and the person right after says “God wants you to be his little stick lit ablaze with his love, it may not seem like much but one small flame can burn down a whole forest” 😂 another one was I had this. Surreal vision looking at stars, shortly after someone messages me saying Jesus is looking at a telescope with you saying to you “everything I have is yours even the stars” another one I was in the bathroom asking God for a message for my friend Moses in Nigeria and as I’m leaving the bathroom i freeze in place and go into this bizarre trance like Peter in the book of acts and I see my friend Moses as a child playing with a toy firetruck and Jesus sitting next to him with love, I quickly tell them and they are in shock as they had just thrown away that toy that same day, another time I had gotten a word from God about someone close to me who hadn’t accepted Jesus and that they had been praying to God secretly, I told them that and the look on their face was priceless as I had no idea they had been praying to God at all, they were shook 😄 this is only a handful of many a 100 times in just the last 12 months after 5 years of me being born again, there’s so many more amazing things that have happened but you are beautiful and desired of God, he is a gentleman and will not force you to choose him or love him but he loves so so much, he’s asking you if you will come, he will love you and cherish you everyday of your life, he will never abandon you, I beg you to take a chance and not reject God’s love for you, he wants to heal you and you to enjoy a living relationship between you, God bless you so much, Jesus says to come to him for rest your weary soul he is humble and meek and tender and gentle, he loves you so much he knows everything about you, nothing about you is unimportant to him 😭❤❤ If you repent and call on his name you will be saved from hell and Jesus’s wrath and judgement for all have sinned!! ❤ For God so loved The World  that gave his only begotten son that whoever should believe in him will not perish but have eternal life!! 💙🙌🏻 repent all have sinned and fallen short!!!🙏❤️❣️❤️

      @Grounded Gaming ​ some voices you just can’t replace 😢

    • Pintér Gábor says:

      Sounds dumb.

  2. Mister Bolticus says:

    I love Leon telling Ashley “Spread out” when pulling the shotgun to fire, little details like that enrich things so much

  3. wyatt geary says:

    seeing ashley move out of gunfire rather than sitting there cowering made me so happy

  4. Chris Murcray says:

    Super PUMPED. I remember buying the original the day it came out. I was 19. Now almost 37 and I don’t think I’ve been so stoked for a game to release. Lets gooooo!!!!!

    • Kicapan Manis says:

      Yea I was 15 when the original came out (so will be 33 this year). Was super hyped for RE4 before that release and it delivered the hype. RE4 is my fav of all time so I’m looking forward to the Remake.

    • David Kulasiewicz says:

      39…turning 40 this month, finally got my PS5 for Xmas and this is gonna be a birthday present from wifey I get to “open” a month later! Best RE game ever looks like it may outdo the original in every way! So Excited and can’t wait!

    • Paul Le says:

      I was 13 years old when it came out. Had a damn blast playing the shit out of the game. Took me over 2 months to finish it (and didn’t have any Youtube to guide me at the time).

    • Heartless gamer_32 says:

      37 here as well 👍🏽. I feel our generation has it the best with games and nostalgia. This remake is what we needed.

    • Mexaveli says:

      im 37 too! i feel you

  5. Chelsea Price says:

    so excited for the stealth! Gives a whole new level to this game and i love it! 🙂

    • Matheus Lopes says:

      It made things go full circle.

      The Last of Us was inspired by Resident Evil and now Resident Evil becomes The Last of Us.

  6. Erik says:

    I like the +1 u get when reloading your gun while its not fully empty so u still got a bullet in the chamber. A little detail my eye caught was when reloading the red9, Leon had 8 bullets left, so he should only need to put 2 more bullets but he inserted the whole clip.

  7. ELITE says:

    This exclusive footage is more than enough to give me the hype. The demo can’t come sooner.

  8. Tim Davidson says:

    Being the big stealth fan that I am, I can’t believe they added sneak kills! That’s really going to give the game a breath of fresh air and make it feel like it’s not just a strictly copy and paste job with updated visuals and controls. I also love that you can now see the weapons Leon is carrying on his person much like RE2 Remake. Damn this can’t come out fast enough. 😩

  9. TL says:

    I’m speechless. This looks beyond phenomenal

  10. MFgabesylar3030 says:

    you can FEEL the tension in this new game. I LOVE it! RE4 is a favorite game of mine, I know a lot of people weren’t in favor of a remake, but with all the different ports you could buy of the OG, why not be curious about a remake as well.
