Share

After a shocking reveal at E3 2018 during the PlayStation presser, Sony have announced that they will be hosting a gameplay demo for the Resident Evil 2 remake tomorrow, June 12th.

The switch to an over-the-shoulder camera is a big change for sure, but otherwise it looks like the Resident Evil 2 remake is retaining numerous elements that made the original game a survival-horror classic.

Later today, we're expecting to see more Resident Evil 2 Remake gameplay drop around 4pm PST.

When Resident Evil 2 made its debut 20 years ago, it featured a fixed camera much like its predecessor, Resident Evil.

Halo Infinite is powered by a new game engine created by Halo developer 343 Industries , called the Slipspace Engine. Halo 6 seems like the most likely candidate to actually make it into the Microsoft E3 conference today.

We're due to see the game in detail tomorrow, when E3 proper begins. Just don't worry about the lack of Claire Redfield so far; Capcom has confirmed she is still there with her own playable campaign, searching for brother Chris.

The genre-defining masterpiece Resident Evil 2 returns, completely rebuilt from the ground up for a deeper narrative experience. They must work together to survive and get to the bottom of what is behind the terrifying attack. Will they make it out alive? This is a complete and total remake of the original title that actually looks better than most modern games.

The cool thing is that players will be returning to the ominous dark, and zombie-infested streets of Raccoon City. WithCapcom's proprietary RE Engine powering a new photorealistic style, the characters themselves appear sharper than ever and the grotesque hordes of zombies are brought to life with a horrifyingly realistic wet gore effect. All of the memorable bits from RE2 seem to be present and correct, with rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy embroiled in a zombie outbreak in the heart of Raccoon City. Players will feel they're in the shoes of heroes Leon and Claire, terrified to step out of the light for fear of what flesh-eating nightmares might await them in the darkness.
