Resident Evil 2 Remake was finally shown at Sony’s E3 2018 Conference and it is playable at Capcom’s Booth during E3. Resident Evil 2 Remake closely follow the design of the original game but appears to use the unused concept art from Resident Evil 1.5.
Some fans have also now compared the map design from Resident Evil 2 Remake to the original game and from the comparison, it appears to be bigger and completely expanded design that adds many new locations and makes some key structural changes.
It is interesting to see how Capcom is working on this Remake and trying to keep it as close to the original experience as possible. The original Raccoon City Police Department map design was a bit ridiculous because it never felt like a Police Station. This has been rectified somewhat in the Remake and now the design actually makes some sense.
Judging from the amount of work that has been spent on making sure that the experience remains as authentic as possible, Capcom appears to have closely listened to fan feedback. This could turn out to be the definitive Resident Evil experience on the current generation consoles with a great mix of Survival Horror and Action that is typically expected from the game.
Resident Evil 2 Remake will be out on January 25th, 2019 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
