Resident Evil 2 Remake Trailer and Release Date

Share

When Resident Evil 2 made its debut 20 years ago, it featured a fixed camera much like its predecessor, Resident Evil. However, it appears that the game will utilize an over-the-camera system similar to what we saw in Resident Evil 4 and 5.

What did you think about the newly updated Resident Evil 2? Now, thanks to both the initial Resident Evil 2 remake trailer shown at Sony's E3 press conference and a gameplay trailer that was uploaded later, we know at least one major change coming to the game. It looks as though players will find themselves once again facing off against hordes of zombies in the streets of Raccoon City, while also contending with the likes of Lickers, Tyrants, and other monstrosities.

So far, it looks as though the Resident Evil 2 remake is going to be faithful to the original game while also delivering something new for fans to sink their teeth into. Both Leon and Claire have their own separate playable campaigns, allowing players to see the story from both characters' perspectives.

Sony revealed Capcom's Resident Evil 2 remake that will be arriving on consoles in 2019. Will they make it out alive? But clearly Capcom has not been idle during all that time, having rebuilt the original game from scratch in the modern RE Engine. On the PlayStation Blog, Capcom used the Raccoon City Police Department as an example and said that there will be all new areas to explore.
