Resident Evil 2 Remake Gets an E3 Trailer


Capcom has released the official E3 2018 trailer for their upcoming Resident Evil 2, a complete remake of the original 1998 title.

Here are more details directly from Capcom press release:

This new world of Resident Evil 2 has been built from ground-up to provide a new perspective on the destroyed metropolis of Raccoon City, and tell the stories of two characters that have become cornerstones of the franchise: Leon S. Kennedy, a rookie cop having the worst first day on the job of his life, and Claire Redfield, a street-savvy college student searching for her brother, Chris.

Both Leon and Claire will have separate campaigns throughout the game after their initial meet-up, allowing you to see events from their individual perspectives while meeting unique characters, solving distinct puzzles, and exploring their separate paths through the decaying city. The Raccoon City Police Department, a museum-turned police precinct, is just one of the many locales you’ll visit. This iconic building holds a special place in the heart of many Resident Evil fans, and now both newcomers and veterans alike will be able to explore it in a brand new way.

The game was announced in 2015 by producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi. The remake to the classic survival horror title has been in the making for a long while and fans have been begging for more info since the title was first announced.

Pre-ordering Resident Evil 2 will grant you access to two bonus weapons – S.T.A.R.S. members Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine’s signature Samurai Edge handguns. With the addition of a special Resident Evil 2 theme as an instant reward for those who preorder via PlayStation Store.

Resident Evil 2 Remake will land on PS4 on January 25th, and will come to other platforms at a later date. The game will cost $59.99 (₹4,000 INR).
