Fans of the classic Resident Evil 2, originally released for the first PlayStation console in 1998, will be excited to know that they will have the opportunity to once again venture into the zombie infested Raccoon City.
The announcement was made by Capcom at E3. The classic video game is being remade for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Along with the announcement was a new trailer that can be seen above. Like the Resident Evil remake for GameCube back in 2002, this game was also built from the ground up. The remake will give players a third person over the shoulder view, like some of the more recent Resident Evil games not counting Resident Evil 7, which was in first person. Players will also still be able to play as both Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy.
Resident Evil 2 follows rookie police officer Leon Kennedy on his first day on the job in Raccoon City, which unfortunately for him is also the same time that the deadly T-Virus is unleashed on the civilians turning most of them into zombies. Along with Claire Redfield, he must escape the precinct and get out of the city.
This is not the first time that Resident Evil 2 has made a come back. According to CBR, being that it was considered one of the best games in the series, Resident Evil 2 was ported to N64, Sega Dreamcast and PC with some modifications. To this day it has retained it’s title as the best selling single platform game.
