Resident Evil 2 - Everything you need to know!

Survival horror returns when Resident Evil 2 launches on January 25th. While you wait for the game to launch get up to speed with our handy recap guide!

What is Resident Evil 2?

The streets of Raccoon City can be explored once again in the upcoming Resident Evil 2, which is a remake of the classic game from 1998. Players will play as either rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy or college student Claire Redfield as she searches the city for her brother Chris (who we played as in Resident Evil). This remake of Resident Evil 2 is a complete overhaul on the original with a new over-the-shoulder camera, improved visuals thanks to the powerful RE Engine (last seen in Resident Evil 7), redesigned gameplay mechanics and much more.

Both Leon and Claire will have their own campaigns to play with as they face the horrors of Raccoon City. Meet up with classic characters such as Ada Wong or Sherry Birkin with new sections designed specifically for them and try out new gameplay mechanics, such as Ada's hacking tool that can be used to shutdown fans in order to progress. Capcom has brought the world to life with redesigned areas that better reflect a modern title, adding tense moments thanks to the lighting and shadows. The game also adds modern conveniences like saves at typewriters no longer requiring you to carry ink, or inventory management improvements to help manage your gear.

You'll also be able to aim while moving, which was something the original game lacked. Though your aim will be a little worse and it's recommended to stop so you have more precise aim (unless you're being chased in which case we don't suggest standing still for too long). Capcom's Resident Evil 2 remake goes a long way to bring the 1998 original in line with modern games and the game stands out among the best in the series.

If you're a fan of survival horror or Resident Evil games in general then Resident Evil 2 may be the game for you. Should you need help deciding you can take a look at our review round up to see what the critics are saying on the Resident Evil 2 Remake!
