The genre-defining masterpiece Resident Evil 2 returns, completely rebuilt
from the ground up for a deeper narrative experience. Using
Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine, Resident Evil 2 offers a fresh take on the
classic survival horror saga with breathtakingly realistic visuals,
heart-poundingly immersive audio, a new over-the-shoulder camera, and modernized
controls on top of gameplay modes from the original game.
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?
