Resident Evil 2 is getting a large overhaul, and now we’ve obtained gameplay footage to see how totally different it’ll be from the unique.
The Resident Evil 2 remaster was introduced yesterday throughout Sony’s E3 presentation, full with an awesome trailer. However we needed extra – gameplay footage and particulars have been lacking from that preliminary video.
Fortunately, we didn’t have to attend lengthy. Resident Evil 2 is playable on the present flooring, and has been demoed throughout a PlayStation reside stream from E3. The footage is out there under.
The E3 demo enables you to play as Leon Kennedy, though Claire will get her personal full marketing campaign within the closing sport, too (and there might be different playable characters from the sound of it – little question eagle-eye followers will spot clues within the reveal trailer). The digital camera now floats over his shoulder, and the UI is way clearer on what you’ll be able to work together with. It’s dynamic too, swinging in shut when a zombie is attacking you.
At one level, the builders name this a ‘new sport’ quite than a remake, however it’s nonetheless very recognisably RE2. The Raccoon Metropolis Police Division is larger and darker, however it nonetheless seems like the identical constructing.
RE2 runs on the RE7 engine, however controls like RE4. Nonetheless, there’s going to be “fewer shooter parts” on this one, extra according to the unique PlayStation launch. The builders examine the sport to a Metroidvania, the place unlocking new routes and navigating takes priority over taking pictures. Bullets might be onerous to return by, and the sport usually sounds fairly hardcore – zombies can come by way of doorways en masse now, and it solely takes just a few bites to kill you. The truth is, there appear to be fairly just a few zombies in right here.
Maybe most importantly, the police station has bogs now. It’s the little issues, ?
Resident Evil 2 will launch for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 25, 2019.
