Resident Evil 2 introduced characters who would go on to become some of the most iconic and beloved personalities in Capcom’s history: rookie police officer Leon S. Kennedy and faculty student Claire Redfield, who are thrust together by a catastrophic epidemic in Raccoon City that changed its inhabitants into deadly zombies. They have to work together to survive and get to the bottom of what’s behind the frightening attack. Both Leon and Claire have their own separately playable campaigns, enabling players to find the story from both characters’ view.
Twenty decades after, the new Resident Evil 2 sees the nightmare recurrence, now with unprecedented levels of immersion as seen in a season’s acclaimed Resident Evil 7 biohazard. With Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine Wearing a brand new photorealistic style, the characters themselves appear flatter than and the grotesque hordes of zombies are attracted to life using a horrifyingly realistic moist gore effect.
Zombies now respond in real time as they take immediate visible harm, making every bullet from the player count. Stunning lighting brings the comfortable chambers and corridors of Raccoon City Police Department to fresh life. Players will believe they’re in the shoes of personalities Leon and Claire, terrified to step from this light for fear of exactly that which flesh-eating nightmares might await them in the darkness.

We would like fans to observe the reimagining of Resident Evil 2 not just captures the magic of the beloved first, but also extends it to produce a richer experience. The first glance at E3 is just a taste of what’s to come.”
