Resident Evil 2 Remake Officially Revealed With New Trailer; Release Date Confirmed

However, it's possible that the system has been tweaked in some way to accommodate for improvements or even just the highly cinematic nature of the original Resident Evil 2 camera system.

The switch to an over-the-shoulder camera is a big change for sure, but otherwise it looks like the Resident Evil 2 remake is retaining numerous elements that made the original game a survival-horror classic.

Story-wise, we do see quite a few familiar faces and locations in the Resident Evil 2 remake trailer. Now, thanks to both the initial Resident Evil 2 remake trailer shown at Sony's E3 press conference and a gameplay trailer that was uploaded later, we know at least one major change coming to the game. In the showcase we got to see the return of Leon and Clare from the original game along with zombies, Lickers and the Tyrant known as "Mr X".

Resident Evil 2 Remake launches on January 25th, 2019 on PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One. Leon and Claire must work together to survive and uncover the cause of the outbreak. Both Leon and Claire have their own separately playable campaigns, allowing players to see the story from both characters' perspective. However, others may approve of the new direction, as it offers a fresh way to experience the classic horror game.

Sony showed off the remake of Resident Evil 2 during its Electronic Entertainment Event today in Los Angeles.

To round things out, a slew of new screenshots for Resident Evil 2 have been revealed. This is a full remake, with new, modern graphics.
