Sony just showed off the first trailer for Capcom’s remake of Resident Evil 2, which sees Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield struggle to survive into a zombie-overrun Raccoon City. The trailer doesn’t feature live gameplay, but it’s entirely 3D-rendered; the game apparently moves away from the pre-rendered backdrops of the original game as well as the lauded remake of the first Resident Evil. Capcom says it features a “new over-the-shoulder camera mode and modernized control scheme,” suggesting it’ll play more like Resident Evil 4 than 2.
Capcom announced that it was developing a Resident Evil 2 remake nearly three years ago, and nothing has been heard since. The game is coming earlier than you might have expected, though: the release date is set for January 25th, 2019. It’ll be coming to PS4, of course, as well as Xbox One and PC; Capcom says the visuals will be in 4K but hasn’t gotten any more specific.
