Resident Evil 2 Remake Revealed, January 2019 Release Date Confirmed

Resident Evil 2 Remake Revealed, January 2019 Release Date Confirmed

After unveiling Devil May Cry 5 at Microsoft's pre-E3 media briefing, Capcom has used Sony's event to premiere the first footage of the long-awaited remake of Resident Evil 2.

The new trailer, which has been shown during Sony E3 2018 showcase, seems to suggest that the game will be somewhat darker than the original release. The preview was, to put it mildly, stunning.


As you can see, the game features revitalized visuals utilizing Resident Evil 7's engine, while at the same time staying true to the spirit of the original game. The original Resident Evil 2 game was released on January 21, 1998 for the original PlayStation, GameCube, and a few other platforms. But right on its heels, we've now gotten a second trailer that shows some brief glimpses of gameplay. Resident Evil 2 is the fourth best-selling game in the franchise with cumulative sales of almost five million units. We've been very eager to unveil the new game to the world this week. This is a complete and total remake of the original title that actually looks better than most modern games. Like the original, the player will be able to play through separate campaigns headed by Leon and Claire. We also noticed the new character models for Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield, and I'm certain that some of you will not like them.

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. With Capcom's proprietary RE Engine powering a new photorealistic 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.
