E3 2018: Resident Evil 2 Remake, What Has Changed

Sony's E3 2018 press conference was home to a trailer for the Resident Evil 2 remake, primarily showcasing cinematics and teasing its existence. Following the release on the Resident Evil 2 Remake trailer and release date announcement, a new video shows some actual gameplay!

It'll be coming to PS4, as well as Xbox One and PC. Capcom is finally ready to reveal a remaster of the all-time horror classic, Resident Evil 2.

Its inclusion of an over-the-shoulder camera instead of its original fixed perspective has drawn the ire of people who wanted a faithful remake, but Resident Evil 2 should still deliver a terrifying experience nonetheless. In addition to huge visual improvements, fans of the old game will now be treated to new twists and turns, and even "a new way to play".

The cool thing is that players will be returning to the ominous dark, and zombie-infested streets of Raccoon City.

White House slams Canadian PM Justine Trudeau; accuses him of betrayal
When Tapper asked if Trump was planning any payback for Trudeau's comments, Kudlow said he wasn't aware of any further moves. German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said: "In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters".

Attendees at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo (Los Angeles, June 12-14) can get an early preview with the first hands-on demo opportunity for Resident Evil 2 at Capcom's booth.

There was very little pure gameplay footage but it did confirm that the remake uses an over-the-shoulder camera view similar to Resident Evil 4 (and 5 and 6) and not the first person view from the more recent Resident Evil 7. The fate of these two fan favorite characters is in players hands as they work together to survive and get to the bottom of what is behind the terrifying attack on the city.

Face the grotesque hordes - Zombies are brought to life with a horrifyingly realistic wet gore effect as they react in real time taking instant visible damage, making every bullet count. We also noticed the new character models for Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield, and I'm certain that some of you will not like them. Stunning lighting brings the familiar rooms and corridors of Raccoon City Police Department to new life. "The first look at E3 is just a taste of what's to come".
