A complete remake of the original from 1998, Resident Evil 2 revisits the nightmare of Raccoon City with modern gameplay mechanics, new and unprecedented visuals, and a photorealistic style powered by the RE Engine that was behind the stunning graphics of Resident Evil 7 biohazard. Keeping in line with the survival horror that defines Resident Evil 2, grotesque hordes of the undead are brought to life with a visceral sense of wetness and gore, reacting to attacks in real time with visible damage from every bullet and shotgun shell. True to the series’ roots, you’ll need to make every one of those shots count if you want to survive, with a new over-the-shoulder camera bringing you even closer to the shambling undead standing between you and your escape.
The genre-defining masterpiece Resident Evil 2 returns, completely rebuilt from the ground up for a deeper narrative experience. Using Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine, Resident Evil 2 offers a fresh take on the classic survival horror saga with breathtakingly realistic visuals, heart-poundingly immersive audio, a new over-the-shoulder camera, and modernized controls on top of gameplay modes from the original game. The nightmares return reimagined for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on January 25, 2019. In Resident Evil 2, the classic action, tense exploration, and puzzle solving gameplay that defined the Resident Evil series returns. 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. Both Leon and Claire have their own separate playable campaigns, allowing players to see the story from both characters’ perspectives. The fate of these two fan favorite characters is in players hands as they work together to survive and get to the bottom of what is behind the terrifying attack on the city. Will they make it out alive?
