Resident Evil 2 releases early next year, bringing a whole new level of detail to one of the most iconic franchises in video game history. New footage of the game, shot in 4K, has been revealed today, showing the game in all its graphics glory.
Capcom has done an amazing job bringing Resident Evil 2 to our current-generation systems so that both old-school gamers can see Racoon City again and new ones can play one of the bases of the horror genre.
The new 4K footage of Resident Evil 2, published by Capcom, follow Leon through his “journey” with some rather graphic scenes. Watching zombies explode has never been more vivid, and the title itself sets a standard for all remakes out there.
The level of detail shown in the 4K footage of the remake of Resident Evil 2 is exquisite and it shows just how much power the engine that Resident Evil 7 was built on has. This gives the developers to create more remakes for the franchise so that we can relive the experience without the hard-to-get-into controls. The game’s pre-order page states about its graphics:
Terrifyingly realistic visuals – Built on Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine, Resident Evil 2 delivers breathtakingly photorealistic visuals in 4K whilst stunning lighting creates an up-close, intense and atmospheric experience as players roam the corridors of the Raccoon City Police Department (RPD).
In related news, A Resident Evil 2 Deluxe Edition has been announced, including Arklay Sheriff Leon Costume, Military Claire Costume, Noir Claire Costume, Samurai Edge-Albert Model Deluxe Weapon, Noir Leon Costume, and the Original Ver. Soundtrack.
Resident Evil 2 will release on January 25th, 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. In this game, there won’t be a zapping system, but you’ll instead be getting two playthroughs, one as Leon and one as Claire. Change is good in most cases, right?
