Capcom has also modernized the controls, which should make it considerably easier to play than the original title. Both Leon and Claire have their own separately playable campaigns, allowing players to see the story from both characters' perspective. Coming on January 25, 2019 to PlayStation 4, the Resident Evil 2 Remake will feature the original gameplay modes, but there's rumors that the storyline has been tweaked from the original as players investigate the zombie-infested Raccoon City. And with the new graphics put to work on the blood, guts, and gore - not to mention the new bloodcurdling audio - the game looks to be just as scary as the original.

Resident Evil 2 Remake launches on January 25th, 2019 on PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One. All of the memorable bits from RE2 seem to be present and correct, with rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy embroiled in a zombie outbreak in the heart of Raccoon City. That's a pretty quick turnaround for a game that just got its first trailer. At the time, Resident Evil 2 was a phenom, becoming one of the biggest video game sellers in 1998 and was the best-selling game on Sony's first console.

It's possible that there are other changes in the Resident Evil 2 remake, but if there are, Capcom hasn't revealed them yet. The setting is Raccoon City, whose citizens have, as you could probably guess, been turned into ravenous zombies by a disastrous plague. Players will feel they're in the shoes of heroes Leon and Claire, terrified to step out of the light for fear of what flesh-eating nightmares might await them in the darkness. Simply known as Resident Evil 2, this remake has been made in Capcom's proprietary RE Engine, the same engine behind last year's rather excellent Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.
