Check Out Some New Resident Evil 2 Remake Gameplay
Capcom has released terrifying new footage from their upcoming remake.
By Chris Morse
The scares are real and the tension is sky-high in the latest gameplay footage for the Resident Evil 2 remake, released by Capcom yesterday. This preview opens with Leon S. Kennedy entering the Raccoon Police Department on what is surely the worst first day of work of all time. The main hall is updated, yet very familiar, providing a calm atmosphere that is quickly destroyed immediately after leaving the entrance area. What follows next is new to the classic Resident Evil 2 experience, but I suspect that long-time fans of the franchise's classic style will not be disappointed by these improvements one bit.
Gory, hectic, and adrenaline-filled are probably the best words to describe the last few minutes of the gameplay video, which are filled with absolute chaos and terror as Leon tries to navigate the eastern halls of the police department. Zombies start to climb in from windows while others appear out of seemingly nowhere, giving the player little choice but to start running. The hallways are dark and bloody, providing an ambience that just screams Resident Evil.
All of these modern touches combined with classic elements of the franchise seem to be the perfect recipe for making this an incredible survival horror experience. This latest gameplay preview has been the best yet, fueling optimism that this remake might be the best Resident Evil game to date. Bold words, we know, but let us know in the comments or on social media if you agree or disagree with that statement.
As for us, we think that this Resident Evil 2 remake can't come soon enough. Is it January 25th, 2019 yet?
