Capcom has just announced the upcoming launch of Resident Evil 2 Remake, the iconic game overhauled for modern consoles.
Not that there will be much of a wait though, as it's now got a confirmed release date of January 25.
In Resident Evil 2, the classic action, tense exploration, and puzzle solving gameplay that defined the Resident Evil series returns. However, it appears that the game will utilize an over-the-camera system similar to what we saw in Resident Evil 4 and 5. 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. The fate of these two fan favorite characters is in players hands as they work together to survive and get to the bottom of what is behind the terrifying attack on the city.
Even though the Resident Evil 2 remake seems to be mostly faithful to the original game, there are some big changes.
