After finishing with all the games released on the Xbox, this time the E3 focus moved to PlayStation. After yesterday’s trailer for Kingdom Hearts III: Frozen and Kingdom Hearts III: Pirates of the Caribbean was released, this time it’s time to show off the Resident Evil 2 Remake trailer.
After speculation popped up about this game, which reportedly was released this October, it turned out that all speculation was wrong. In the trailer, it is stated that Resident Evil 2 Remake will be released January 25, 2019 and pre-orders have also been opened, you know!
From what was shown at the E3 PlayStation conference, this game looks really beautiful with a touch of enhanced graphics and new zombies that are more brutal than before. Resident Evil 2 was the first of January 21, 1998. The release of the remake version of this game marks the 21st year of this game. For those of you who have never played Resident Evil 2 when released on the PlayStation, Dreamcast, Nintendo GameCube, and other platforms, you can watch the trailer for the remake version below.
In Resident Evil 2 Remake, classic action, tension and puzzles to complete the game which is characteristic of Resident Evil are again lifted. Players join forces with police Leon Kennedy and student Claire Redfield who together save themselves from the plague in the city of Raccoon which turns its population into deadly zombies.
It is built using RE Engine – the same engine that is the foundation for Resident Evil 7. The camera is ensured to use an over-the-shoulder, third person shooter system, like Resident Evil 4.
Like Chris in Resident Evil 7, Capcom also changed the character design for the two main characters – Leon and Claire who looked more “realistic”. Capcom promises that this remake version will have a narrative depth better than the original version.
The zombies that receive damage from your attack, will now also show these effects on the visual side. Classic gameplay where it melts action, puzzles and creepy corridors is promised back.
Both Leon and Claire have their own stories and players can play their characters both from a different perspective. The fate of both is in the hands of the players as they work together to survive and look for the reason behind the terrible attack on the city.
Like the original series, gamers can choose to enjoy the story from Leon’s or Claire’s perspective. Resident Evil 2 Remake will be released on the upcoming January 25, 2019 for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and of course – PC.
