'With Capcom's proprietary RE Engine powering a new photo-realistic 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.
Resident Evil 2 fans hoping to soon return to the game's grim universe finally have some new information. The plot is the same - Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield will be stuck in the grips of an epidemic of Raccoon City. That's right - you'll no longer be struggling with the wonky tank controls of the original.
What is the Resident Evil series?
Okay, so, stay with me. "We want fans to see the reimagining of Resident Evil 2 not only captures the magic of the beloved original, but also expands it to deliver a richer experience". This led to the usual Resident Evil rhythm of looking for keys, clues and special items while carefully exploring spooky hallways riddled with flesh-eating undead. Both Leon and Claire have their own separate playable campaigns, allowing players to see the story from both characters' perspectives. The shooting also feels more natural, more similar to Resident Evil 7.
The original version of Resident Evil 2 was the fastest-selling video game in North America upon its initial release and retains its title as the best-selling game in the franchise on a single platform.
Some may be anxious that the over-the-shoulder camera may make the game feel too different to the original Resident Evil 2, but the trailers indicate that the remake is going to be very faithful to the original.
