Gamespot has uploaded a almost 20-minute, uncut gameplay video for Resident Evil 2 that gives us a much better idea of what kind of gameplay to expect from this remake. Yes, you could play as a lump of tofu in 1998's Resident Evil 2, but it was an unlockable game mode accessed after getting an A rank in multiple scenario playthroughs.
Resident Evil 2, one of the most beloved horror games ever made, is finally receiving the modern-day remake that fans have been clamoring for ever since Capcom's exceptional remake of the original Resident Evil. However, Capcom has since confirmed that both HUNK and Tofu, as well as their respective game modes, will be returning for the remake. This could turn out to be the definitive Resident Evil experience on the current generation consoles with a great mix of Survival Horror and Action that is typically expected from the game. Along with the announcement was a new trailer that can be seen above. It will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. 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.
What hasn't changed is the original version of Resident Evil 2's brilliant horror atmosphere. Both Leon and Claire have their own playable campaigns, allowing gamers to see the story from a different point of view.
It's a rare time for zombie hunters, I reckon, because the Resident Evil 4 HD Project mod now also has a launch date: July 13, 2018.
I can't wait to scare myself silly all over again when the final product hits PS4, Xbox One and PC on January 25, 2019.
