Resident Evil 2 Remake Officially Revealed With New Trailer; Release Date Confirmed

Fans have clamored for a remake of the seminal title for years, and it finally surfaced during Sony's PlayStation 4 presentation ahead of E3 2018.

So far, it looks as though the Resident Evil 2 remake is going to be faithful to the original game while also delivering something new for fans to sink their teeth into. Both Leon and Claire have their own separately playable campaigns, allowing players to see the story from both characters' perspective. After waiting so long between the initial announcement and this reveal, some may be anxious a similar wait may be in store until we can all get our hands on the game.

Resident Evil 2 will arrive back on a PlayStation console on January 25, 2019, but will also come to Xbox One and PC. Leon S. Kennedy is a rookie cop who finds himself tied up in the madness of Raccoon City when he reports in for the world's worst first day on the job, while Claire Redfield is a street savvy college student who defies the danger of the city as she searches for her brother, Chris.

In Resident Evil 2, the classic action, tense exploration, and puzzle solving gameplay that defined the Resident Evil series returns. Zombies now react in real time as they take instant visible damage, making every bullet from the player count.

We're due to see the game in detail tomorrow, when E3 proper begins. "T$3 he characters themselves appear sharper than ever and the grotesque hordes of zombies are brought to life with a horrifyingly realistic wet gore effect", it said. However, it's possible that the system has been tweaked in some way to accommodate for improvements or even just the highly cinematic nature of the original Resident Evil 2 camera system.

Attendees at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo (Los Angeles, June 12-14) can get an early preview with the first hands-on demo opportunity for Resident Evil 2 at Capcom's booth.
