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.
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. In an interview with GamingBolt, Capcom Brand Manager Mike Lunn said players also get a 60 FPS option.
At Gamescom 2018, IGN managed to test out out the Xbox One X version and it looks great running at 4K resolution. What's immediately noticeable is the detail on the faces of the characters and creatures.
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.
