Did you know there's more footage of the Resident Evil 2 Remake that didn't appear during the Sony E3 2018 conference?

In Resident Evil 2, the classic action, tense exploration, and puzzle solving gameplay that defined the Resident Evil series returns. There's already an ongoing hype among hardcore Resi fans about this promising remake of the 1998 original. Simply known as Resident Evil 2, this remake has been made in Capcom's proprietary RE Engine, the same engine behind last year's rather excellent Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. From what was uncovered at this point, the RE Engine is going to create a whole new feel and look for the city. Both Leon and Claire have their own separately playable campaigns, allowing players to see the story from both characters' perspective.

We're due to see the game in detail tomorrow, when E3 proper begins. Newcomers will be stepping into Raccoon City for the first time and it will be a non-stop rollercoster from start to finish.

However, it's possible that the system has been tweaked in some way to accommodate for improvements or even just the highly cinematic nature of the original Resident Evil 2 camera system. There, they can experience a completely new take on one of the most iconic moments in the Resident Evil franchise - joining Leon on his first day on the job at RPD as he explores the station for clues on how to make it out of this nightmare alive.
