A completely remade Resident Evil 2 will return in early 2019

Prior to E3 there was talk about Resident Evil 2 being remade. Well, they say that seeing is believing, and that old saying is definitely true in this case.

Thanks to Sony, we can now share the first look at this completely remade and revamped version of Resident Evil 2, which looks incredible with modern visuals and advanced technology behind it. It doesn’t skimp on gore, either, as you’ll see early on in the trailer.

It’s really interesting to see this classic game under a new light, because Resident Evil 2 was such a seminal experience back in the 90s. The characters have all been updated and redesigned, and everything looks great. Then again, this is a predominantly CG and cinematic trailer we’re talking about. Hopefully the actual gameplay will look close to as good.

Resident Evil 2 will be released on January 25, 2019, and can be preordered now.
