Resident Evil 2 Remake Out Now

Survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake from Capcom is now available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Going through phases of wild rumors for a remake for years and then getting a confirmation from developer/publisher Capcom three years before the official reveal, Resident Evil 2 Remake is finally out today for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide.

An epic retelling of the original survival horror classic from 1998, RE2 Remake was built from scratch with RE Engine that created Resident Evil 7 and used over-the-shoulder third-person gameplay mechanics similar to Resident Evil 4.

Beloved series protagonists Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield are stepping into a deadly virus infested Raccoon City once again with no hope for escape and death lurking in every corner in form of deadly and vicious monsters to tear them apart.

Then there will be G-Virus infected former Umbrella scientist William Birkin and Mr. X, a persistent trenchcoated Tyrant bio-weapon chasing you. Leon and Claire would also investigate the deadly T-Virus outbreak while coming across the mysterious Ada Wong, Annette and Sherry Birkin.
