As can be seen from the trailer, the game is going to offer jaw-dropping updated visuals, a new over-the-shoulder camera, and controls that have been modernized.
Originally released in 1998, Resident Evil 2 introduced some of the most iconic characters in the long-running series. For those that haven’t played it, Resident Evil 2 introduces Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield who a pushed together because of the outbreak in Raccoon City. The remake will feature the same dual campaign set-up as the original.
Resident Evil 2 Remake is being developed on Capcom’s RE Engine that allows for a photorealistic visual 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. Zombies now react in real time as they take instant visible damage, making every bullet from the player count. Stunning lighting brings the familiar rooms and corridors of Raccoon City Police Department to new life. 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,” a press release from Capcom.
Resident Evil 2 will arrive early next year.
