Resident Evil 2 make it onto the shortlist of games that Sony shared on stage at its E3 2018 press conference, but that’s not the last of the title that we’ll see this week. In addition to the trailer shared during the showcase, a second trailer also dropped that shows off even more gameplay and cinematic cutscenes.
The Resident Evil 2 trailer shares some footage from the showcase reveal, but also mixes in some new material and some additional plot details thanks to dialogue.
Here’s a look at the additional announcement trailer…
“In Resident Evil 2, the classic action, tense exploration, and puzzle solving gameplay that defined the Resident Evil series returns. Players join rookie police officer Leon Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield, who are thrust together by a disastrous outbreak in Raccoon City that transformed its population into deadly zombies. Both Leon and Claire have their own separate playable campaigns, allowing players to see the story from both characters’ perspectives. The fate of these two Fan Favorite characters is in players hands as they work together to survive and get to the bottom of what is behind the terrifying attack on the city. Will they make it out alive?”
Leon and Claire are back and look better than ever. The trailer does a great job of hitting on some classic story and location beats from the original title, while also mixing in enough new material to keep things interesting. Although many gamers may be suffering from remake and remaster fatigue, it seems like enough time has passed since this classic to get most fans excited for it once again.
Check back throughout the week for more news on Resident Evil 2 and other E3 coverage.
The Resident Evil 2 remake will launch on January 25, 2019 for PS4 and other, unspecified platforms.
