Resident Evil 2 Remake Officially Revealed, Coming January 2019

12 June 2018

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.

Sony's E3 2018 press conference was home to a trailer for the Resident Evil 2 remake, primarily showcasing cinematics and teasing its existence.

"The press and fan reaction to Resident Evil 2 when we said "We Do It" in 2015 has been overwhelming". The remake of the title will be different, switching to a new modern third-person perspective. After waiting so long between the initial announcement and this reveal, some may be anxious a similar wait may be in store until we can all get our hands on the game.

The switch to an over-the-shoulder camera is a big change for sure, but otherwise it looks like the Resident Evil 2 remake is retaining numerous elements that made the original game a survival-horror classic. We've been very eager to unveil the new game to the world this week. With Capcom's proprietary RE Engine powering a new photorealistic style, the characters themselves appear sharper than ever and the grotesque hordes of zombies are brought to life with a horrifyingly realistic wet gore effect. However, it's possible that the system has been tweaked in some way to accommodate for improvements or even just the highly cinematic nature of the original Resident Evil 2 camera system. All of the memorable bits from RE2 seem to be present and correct, with rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy embroiled in a zombie outbreak in the heart of Raccoon City. There, they can experience a completely new take on one of the most iconic moments in the Resident Evil franchise - joining Leon on his first day on the job at RPD as he explores the station for clues on how to make it out of this nightmare alive.
