Resident Evil 2 remake announced for early 2019

Resident Evil 2 Remake Revealed, January 2019 Release Date Confirmed

Resident Evil 2 Remake Revealed, January 2019 Release Date Confirmed

Each will have their own separate playable campaigns, allowing gamers to experience the story from both characters' perspectives.

The cool thing is that players will be returning to the ominous dark, and zombie-infested streets of Raccoon City.

As a 19-year-old Ellie takes centre stage for The Last of Us: Part II, Naughty Dog managed to surprise fans by presenting E3 with its first prominently featured gay kiss.

The press and fan reaction to Resident Evil 2 when we said "We Do It" in 2015 has been overwhelming. In the first video, the game appears to adopt Resident Evil 4's over-the-shoulder perspective as Leon S. Kennedy reports to the Raccoon City Police Department on the day a zombie outbreak has claimed nearly everyone.

Resident Evil 2 remake will be coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on 25th January 2019, and there are two rather intense new trailers to check out below.

Like the original found on the first iteration of the PlayStation, players will have the option of choosing to play between Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield. "True to the series' roots, you'll need to make every one of those shots count if you want to survive, with a new over-the-shoulder camera bringing you even closer to the shambling undead standing between you and your escape".

It's possible that there are other changes in the Resident Evil 2 remake, but if there are, Capcom hasn't revealed them yet. WithCapcom'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.

If you happen to be in attendance at E3 this year, you can play a short demo of Resident Evil 2 at Capcom's booth in the South Hall.
