Capcom has released the company’s most popular game, Resident Evil 2, in a remake that has given it a creepy vibe reminiscent of its predecessor when it first debuted 20yrs ago.
The survival horror game which is more synonymous with PlayStation will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC on January 25, 2019, and was unveiled during the PlayStation Conference at E3.
The unexpected trailer release during Playstation’s announcement surprised everyone as while it was common knowledge that Capcom were remaking the franchise (as announced nearly three years ago), there had been no word of it since.
But the wait has been worth it, with highly detailed and defined graphics, and new camera angles, culminating to present a more terrifying replica of the zombie survival game that inspired a genre.
With the new Resident Evil 2, Capcom is taking the fourth best-selling game in the series’ history, with cumulative sales of 4.96 million units, and creating it anew.
Its popularity and strong fan base is what Capcom has been counting on, however, it is this strong and loyal fanbase that will be the re-makes strongest critics.
Yet so far, there seems to be no complaints

I haven’t played a video game in a long time, but I will make an exception for a Resident Evil 2 remake.

Meanwhile, I was secretly hoping we could play as the rat.
