Resident Evil 2 is upon us and we are ready to make our return to that fateful night in Raccoon City, 21 years later. To celebrate the arrival of this highly anticipated remake, Capcom has released one final trailer to get fans pumped to finally get their chance to play it.

This launch trailer features all-new footage and focuses heavily on the deeper story elements of the game, which fans of the original are surely already familiar with. However, the stakes feel higher than ever in this gorgeous, modern recreation of this survival horror classic.

If you want just one more taste of what’s to come in this game, give the trailer above a watch and get yourself ready to do whatever it takes to survive the horrors of Raccoon City. But, wait, there’s more!

This whole occasion wouldn’t be complete without also recreating George A. Romero’s 1998 live-action trailer for the original game, would it? Capcom thought as much and surprised fans by releasing one for the new game, inspired by Romero’s work on the original. You can give the remake’s very own live-action trailer a watch below.

Resident Evil 2 is out at midnight for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Comment below and let us know your thoughts once you finally get your hands on it!
