E3 2018: Resident Evil 2 Remake, What Has Changed

"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". They also revealed new details on how zombies will now actively be affected when damaged alone with more details on this reimagined version of Raccoon City. That's a pretty quick turnaround for a game that just got its first trailer.

The appearance of an original PlayStation is just one way that the Resident Evil 2 remake is paying homage to the original game.

"The press and fan reaction to Resident Evil 2 when we said "We Do It" in 2015 has been overwhelming", Capcom producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi says.

Like the original found on the first iteration of the PlayStation, players will have the option of choosing to play between Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield.

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. Developed using Capcom's proprietary RE Engine, Resident Evil 2 is said to offer a fresh take on the classic survival horror saga complete with breathtakingly realistic visuals, immersive audio, modernized controls and a new over-the-shoulder camera.

As we can see, Resident Evil 2 Remake will be a third-person game with the camera behind/near the shoulder of the character.

Resident Evil 2 remake will be coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on 25th January 2019, and there are two rather intense new trailers to check out below.

Twenty years later, the new Resident Evil 2sees the nightmare return, now with unprecedented levels of immersion as seen in last year's acclaimed Resident Evil 7 biohazard.

In any case, the Resident Evil 2 remake looks like it's going to be worth the unbelievably long wait.
