Resident Evil 2 Remake Gameplay Looks Brutal In Stunning New Video

Sony showed off the first trailer for the remake of Resident Evil 2 at E3 last night, and fans are very excited. There are also a few easter eggs in the showcase like the inclusion of a Playstation One console as well as a plague rat from Resident Evil Outbreak.

The switch to an over-the-shoulder camera is a big change for sure, but otherwise it looks like the Resident Evil 2 remake is retaining numerous elements that made the original game a survival-horror classic.

Check out the E3 2018 Resident Evil 2 Remake trailer.

The original Resident Evil 2 released in 1998 for the first PlayStation, and introduced such series favourites as rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield. However, others may approve of the new direction, as it offers a fresh way to experience the classic horror game.

To round things out, a slew of new screenshots for Resident Evil 2 have been revealed. As you can see from the screenshots above, the game has markedly improved graphics as well as a new over-the-shoulder camera, but will also have a more modernised control scheme and "heart-poundingly immersive" audio, all of which you can get a taste of in not one, but two trailers for the upcoming title.

Players will also be visiting some familiar locations in their return trip to Raccoon City. We already know that it will adopt the Resident Evil 4 perspective and the RE Engine used for Resident Evil 7, though the gameplay demo will allow us a closer look at the exploits of the refreshed Leon and Claire. WithCapcom'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.

A Resident Evil 2 HD remaster and/or remake has been in the works off-and-on for a while now, having first been announced in August 2015 before going dark for a couple of years.
