Tuesday, 12 Jun, 2018

Capcom has just announced the upcoming launch of Resident Evil 2 Remake, the iconic game overhauled for modern consoles. There are also a few easter eggs in the showcase like the inclusion of a Playstation One console as well as a plague rat from Resident Evil Outbreak.

The press and fan reaction to Resident Evil 2 when we said "We Do It" in 2015 has been overwhelming.

Later today, we're expecting to see more Resident Evil 2 Remake gameplay drop around 4pm PST.

Twenty years ago, Resident Evil 2 was a breakout hit for the original PlayStation and helped solidify the survival horror genre. In addition to huge visual improvements, fans of the old game will now be treated to new twists and turns, and even "a new way to play". They must work together to survive and get to the bottom of what is behind the terrifying attack. We already know that it will adopt the Resident Evil 4 perspective and the RE Engine used for Resident Evil 7, though the gameplay demo will allow us a closer look at the exploits of the refreshed Leon and Claire.

The genre-defining masterpiece Resident Evil 2 returns, completely rebuilt from the ground up for a deeper narrative experience. Will they make it out alive?

Playing as Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy, Capcom is swapping out the original fixed camera viewpoints for an over-the-shoulder view.

It's hard to describe just how much work seems to have gone into this remake; they've created photorealistic models from the ground up and will even have a few new surprises in terms of level design. "T$3 he characters themselves appear sharper than ever and the grotesque hordes of zombies are brought to life with a horrifyingly realistic wet gore effect", it said. They also revealed new details on how zombies will now actively be affected when damaged alone with more details on this reimagined version of Raccoon City.
