Capcom has shared a set of comparison screenshots revealing just how big of a leap is for Resident Evil 2 Remake from PS1 to PS4.
Resident Evil 2 launched on the PS1 and it has been almost 20 years since the game released back in 1998. Naturally, this large gap is going to result in a big leap for visuals so this is not surprising in the least, but it is still amazing to see nonetheless how far the video game visuals have come, and the efforts spent on the Remake.
Resident Evil 2 Remake uses the new RE Engine that was developed by Capcom. It is a great looking engine as seen in the screenshots, the visuals almost feel like they are photo-realistic, which is also the aim of the developers.
The official comparison screenshots serve the purpose of showing these incredibly detailed character models for Resident Evil 2 Remake. RE Engine was first used for Resident Evil 7 and it has been since utilized to develop the upcoming Resident Evil 2 Remake and Devil May Cry 5.
Capcom shared a brand new trailer for the game at Tokyo Game Show 2018. This trailer also gave us our first glimpse at the story and Ada Wong’s new design, which was leaked in the past.
Resident Evil 2 Remake will be out on January 25th, 2019 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
