Resident Evil 2 Remake is available to play right now thanks to a demo on Steam. We've been busy putting this top-to-bottom remake through its paces to see how Resi Evil 2 runs on PC. Resident Evil 2 Remake is, without question, a fantastic looking game, but it can also be quite a performance hog if you're not careful. A number of graphics options in Resi 2 can tank the frame rate.
The Resident Evil 2 / Biohazard RE:2 demo went live at the weekend, giving PC players the opportunity to go hands-on with this total remake of one of the most beloved survival horror games of all time. This means the graphics options for Resident Evil 2 on PC are now out in the wild and Capcom looks as if it's provided comprehensive support for the PC version.
UPDATE: Well that didn't take long. Intrepid modders have already figured out a way to bypass the 30-minute time limit it the Resident Evil 2 Remake PC demo. The RE2 One Shot Trainer removes the time restrictions and allows unlimited access to the Racoon City Police Department portion of Resi Evil 2.
Capcom’s provided us with a nice half an hour of entertainment this afternoon courtesy of an extensive direct-feed look at the upcoming Resident Evil 2 remake.
Anyone who’s tried playing the 1998 Resident Evil 2 will be keenly aware its visuals haven’t aged well. The upcoming Resident Evil 2 Remake from Capcom is redoing the entire game from the ground up, adding new gameplay sections, a new behind-the-shoulder camera angle, and, of course, the obligatory native 4K support on PC.
Resident Evil 2 is back. It's been over twenty years since arguably the greatest game in the series graced us with its presence, and Resident Evil 2 Remake is ripping up the rulebook with a total overhaul. RE2 Remake features a new engine, a new behind-the-character camera, and reworked gameplay segments.
The sheer magnitude of the overhaul taking place for the Resident Evil 2 remake was a pleasant surprise during a Sony press conference that was a little bereft of surprises.
Three years after its announcement, Capcom has finally taken the wraps off of the Resident Evil 2 remake. And it’s certainly a remake alright, there’s no hint of a remaster in this total overhaul. Resident Evil 2 Remake uses the same RE Engine used for Resident Evil 7, rebuilding the game from the ground up with some ultra-detailed visuals, remade audio, and a new over-the-shoulder camera. That should beat the old fixed camera and tank controls, any day.
Ever since announcing a Resident Evil 2 Remake is in development back in 2015, Capcom has practically gone radio silent aside from confirming it’ll be a full remake rather than an HD remaster. Today we’ve got our first whiff of something happening though, with the official Resident Evil Twitter account updating its profile image from the old Resident Evil VII - Biohazard logo to something… distinctively Resident Evil 2.
