During Sony’s E3 press conference on Monday, the studio shared a first look at the Resident Evil 2 remake, a project that’s been long in the works from Capcom. It looks bloody fantastic, with completely redone visuals and gameplay.
The game looks to be using the same engine introduced by Resident Evil 7, which means the game looks absolutely gorgeous. Capcom has long shown attention to the first Resident Evil, releasing the remake a number of times; it’s nice to see Resident Evil 2, considering one of the strongest in the franchise, getting some love.
Fans will be happy to hear the camera will go to an over-the-shoulder view, similar to Resident Evil 4. Capcom didn’t share many new details beyond that, and no actual gameplay was shown. We did, however, get a release date: January 25, 2019.
