  • Resident Evil 2 remake

Sony showed off the remake of Resident Evil 2 during its Electronic Entertainment Event today in Los Angeles. 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 developers have announced that Resident Evil 2 Remake is going to have something for both veterans and those who are totally new to the survival horror series. Leon S. Kennedy is a rookie cop who finds himself tied up in the madness of Raccoon City when he reports in for the world's worst first day on the job, while Claire Redfield is a street savvy college student who defies the danger of the city as she searches for her brother, Chris. Coming on January 25, 2019 to PlayStation 4, the Resident Evil 2 Remake will feature the original gameplay modes, but there's rumors that the storyline has been tweaked from the original as players investigate the zombie-infested Raccoon City.

We're due to see the game in detail tomorrow, when E3 proper begins. They must work together to survive and get to the bottom of what is behind the terrifying attack.


To round things out, a slew of new screenshots for Resident Evil 2 have been revealed. Will they make it out alive?

In a press release, Capcom said the "game has been completely rebuilt from the ground up for a deeper narrative experience". The remake of the title will be different, switching to a new modern third-person perspective. "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. The setting is Raccoon City, whose citizens have, as you could probably guess, been turned into ravenous zombies by a disastrous plague. Players will feel they're in the shoes of heroes Leon and Claire, terrified to step out of the light for fear of what flesh-eating nightmares might await them in the darkness.
