About

The genre-defining masterpiece Resident Evil 2 returns, completely rebuilt from the ground up for a deeper narrative experience. Using Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine, Resident Evil 2 offers a fresh take on the classic survival horror saga with breathtakingly realistic visuals, heart-poundingly immersive audio, a new over-the-shoulder camera, and modernized controls on top of gameplay modes from the original game. The nightmares return reimagined for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on January 25, 2019.

In Resident Evil 2, the classic action, tense exploration, and puzzle solving gameplay that defined the Resident Evil series returns. Players join rookie police officer Leon Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield, who are thrust together by a disastrous outbreak in Raccoon City that transformed its population into deadly zombies. Both Leon and Claire have their own separate playable campaigns, allowing players to see the story from both characters’ perspectives. The fate of these two fan favorite characters is in players hands as they work together to survive and get to the bottom of what is behind the terrifying attack on the city. Will they make it out alive?

Key Features

A spine-chilling reimagining of a horror classic – Based on the original PlayStation console release in 1998, the new game has been completely rebuilt from the ground up for a deeper narrative experience.
A whole new perspective – New over-the-shoulder camera mode and modernized control scheme creates a more modern take on the survival horror experience and offers players a trip down memory lane with the original gameplay modes from the 1998 release.
Terrifyingly realistic visuals – Built on Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine, Resident Evil 2 delivers breathtakingly photorealistic visuals in 4K whilst stunning lighting creates an up-close, intense and atmospheric experience as players roam the corridors of the Raccoon City Police Department (RPD).
Face the grotesque hordes – Zombies are brought to life with a horrifyingly realistic wet gore effect as they react in real time taking instant visible damage, making every bullet count.
Iconic series defining gameplay – Engage in frenzied combat with enemies, explore dark menacing corridors, solve puzzles to access areas and collect and use items discovered around the environment in a terrifying constant fight for survival.
See favorite characters in a whole new light – Join rookie police officer Leon S. Kennedy on his first day in the job and college student Claire Redfield, who is searching for her brother amidst a terrifying zombie
epidemic.
Step into the rookie shoes of both heroes – Enjoy separately playable campaigns for both Leon and Claire, allowing players to see the story from both characters’ perspective.
How old was I when this came out? I basically played this game so much I could probably get through the RPD Police HQ blindfolded.

Cool. I wasn't expecting a RE 2 remake.
I wonder if the remake will fix the continuity error issues of RE3?

The reports also mention the possibility of the old school fixed camera angles being an option.

Also Elza Walker costumes for Claire. For those not in the know, Elza Walker was the original form of the main female character in the prototype version that would eventually become Claire Redfield.

Absolutely fantastic use of lighting. That infamous corridor looks more terrifying than it originally was.

Police Station first floor layout with comparison to original layout, courtesy of Gamespot, unless they somehow change it in the release.



It would seem there's an indicator that tells you if you've completely managed to search out the room for everything in it. In a way it's good because it'll help keep track of unnecessary backtracking.

If this is indeed an option, it's a nice touch for those so inclined; I for one believe that games like Dead Space put to rest once and for all that fixed angles and purposesly-clunky controls are needed for a 'survival horror experience'.

Another nice touch. If they also had different dialogue scriped for Elza, I wonder if it comes with the costume...

More generally... aside from the continuity error issues MrTerrrorist points out, I do wonder if this will also include anything the team had wanted to include in the original release, but never got to.

Me too. I thought RE3 had multiple endings and it was not shown a canon one.

Also, I wonder how is the extent of this game's horror. I mean, Leon's skills in the original PSONE were epic and he was just a rookie.

I would assume that the canonical ending to 3 would be the one involving Barry, since he appears in Revelations 2.

Very similar to the sysreqs for RE7, pretty expected since it's it's the same REngine.

Me? My PC can handle it easy, but one of my favorite games was played on the PS and I'll be playing it on the PS4.
