"The press and fan reaction to Resident Evil 2 when we said "We Do It" in 2015 has been overwhelming", Capcom producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi says. The E3 2018 trailer shown during Sony's press conference confirmed that players will roam the haunted halls of the Raccoon City police department, as well as explore the secret Umbrella laboratory located underneath the city. The preview was, to put it mildly, stunning. "Both characters will be playable through separate storylines, each bringing with them a unique perspective on the game's events as their paths intertwine to tell the complete tale of Resident Evil 2, including familiar faces and story elements and extra modes from the original 1998 release". As you can see from the screenshots above, the game has markedly improved graphics as well as a new over-the-shoulder camera, but will also have a more modernised control scheme and "heart-poundingly immersive" audio, all of which you can get a taste of in not one, but two trailers for the upcoming title. Players join rookie police officer Leon Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield, who are thrust together by a disastrous outbreak in Raccoon City that transformed its population into deadly zombies.

The cool thing is that players will be returning to the ominous dark, and zombie-infested streets of Raccoon City.

The developers have announced that Resident Evil 2 Remake is going to have something for both veterans and those who are totally new to the survival horror series. WithCapcom's proprietary RE Engine powering a new photorealistic style, the characters themselves appear sharper than ever and the grotesque hordes of zombies are brought to life with a horrifyingly realistic wet gore effect.
