Recently, Capcom revealed new screenshots from the Resident Evil 2 remake launching on Xbox One and other platforms on January 25, 2019. While the screenshots showcase the dark corridors and gory battles, many of the images feature the return of Ada Wong and some other important characters. According to the developer, she's a mysterious antihero that works for the villains, but also helps Leon Kennedy. It's an unusual romance.
You can take a look at the gallery below with over two dozen captures. Resident Evil 2 has never looked better because it features photorealistic visuals. They're a marked improvement over Resident Evil 7: Biohazard as well.
At the PlayStation E3 2018 reveal, it was unclear if the game was a PlayStation 4 exclusive or coming to other platforms. Luckily, we reached out to Capcom and the team provided us with confirmation that Resident Evil 2 was indeed coming to Xbox One, with Xbox One X enhancements in tow. The Xbox Store lists Resident Evil 2 as a "4K Ultra HD" title. In an interview with GamingBolt, Capcom Brand Manager Mike Lunn said players also get a 60 FPS option.
Resident Evil 2 originally launched in 1998 and is considered a cult classic. The title features tense exploration and puzzle-solving gameplay that are staples in the series even to this day. For those unfamiliar with the story, players join rookie police officer Leon Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield, who are thrust together by a disastrous outbreak in Raccoon City. The illness transforms the population into deadly zombies who just want to kill.

Will this be out for PC?
They are good but not that photorealistic yet
You just can't say photorealistic when there are zombies in pictures..
That's not what photo realistic means...
Photorealism doesn't mean realistic photo.
looks as plasticky as ever to me
I hate this super dark theme they are going with. Like Re7 and outlast. Wish they would realize the game doesn't have to be so dark to be scary and have a great atmosphere. The original Re2 was well lit in many areas and still scared the crap out of me. I'll probably wait till this goes on sale and buy it.
