Watch 30 minutes of Resident Evil 2 remake footage

A few days ago, Capcom revealed new footage from the Resident Evil 2 remake launching on Xbox One and other platforms on January 25, 2019. The livestream focuses on Claire's campaign and what she has to fight against. The zombies have never looked more gruesome! This is a remake along the lines of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition because it's such a dramatic shift from the original experience.

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 will 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.
