E3: Capcom Unveil First Look At Re-Imagined Resident Evil 2
During the Sony Conference at E3 this year, Capcom unveiled one of the most highly anticipated re-imagined games of all time; Resident Evil 2.
Capcom assured everyone that the new game has been completely rebuilt from the ground up for a deeper narrative experience. Using their proprietary RE Engine, we are told the new Resident Evil 2, originally released in 1998, will offer a fresh take on the classic survival horror saga with breathtakingly realistic visuals, heart-poundingly immersive audio, a new over-the-shoulder camera, and modernised controls on top of gameplay modes from the original game.
“The press and fan reaction to Resident Evil 2 when we said ‘We Do It’ in 2015 has been overwhelming. We’ve been very eager to unveil the new game to the world this week,” said Capcom Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi. “We want fans to see the reimagining of Resident Evil 2 not only captures the magic of the beloved original, but also expands it to deliver a richer experience. The first look at E3 is just a taste of what’s to come.”
Resident Evil 2 is due for release on PlayStation 4, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X and Windows PC on 25th January 2019
