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.
Capcom has finally shown off the remake of their classic PS1 game and there's not a pre-rendered background or fixed camera in sight.
"The original 1998 PlayStation game is fondly remembered by people all over the world". Players can expect fresh take on the stories of Claire and Leon, as they move around the city in a desperate effort to stay alive. They must work together to survive and get to the bottom of what is behind the terrifying attack.
It's hard to describe just how much work seems to have gone into this remake; they've created photorealistic models from the ground up and will even have a few new surprises in terms of level design.
Resident Evil 2 launches January 25, 2019 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. 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.
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. This is a complete and total remake of the original title that actually looks better than most modern games. Simply known as Resident Evil 2, this remake has been made in Capcom's proprietary RE Engine, the same engine behind last year's rather excellent Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. 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.
To round things out, a slew of new screenshots for Resident Evil 2 have been revealed.
