Today, Capcom shared new screenshots of Resident Evil 2 for current-generation systems. The game looks incredible with its detailed textures and haunting lighting. The focus this time around is on Claire's campaign.
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 on January 25, 2019, with Xbox One X enhancements in tow. The Xbox Store lists Resident Evil 2 as a "4K Ultra HD" title. However, in an interview with GamingBolt, Capcom Brand Manager Mike Lunn said players will be able to toggle 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. Both Leon and Claire have their own playable campaigns, allowing gamers to see the story from a different point of view.
Resident Evil 2 is currently available for preorder on Xbox One for $59.99. If you loved the iconic game back then, be sure to give this updated version a go.
