Resident Evil 2 remake confirmed

Continuing the recent Resident Evil string of games that Capcom has been remaking, remastering, and releasing on new generation consoles, a new revelation that many had already expected — a Resident Evil 2 remake has been confirmed.

In the latest announcement video, the lead man and producer for the Resident Evil 2 remake, Yoshiaki Hirabyashi, claims that they will work closely with fans to determine the exact gameplay experience that people want.

Hirabyashi has keeping fans already closely connected to the project through facebook and after submitting his project proposal to the higher-ups at Capcom was approved for the game’s creation.

“It’s been great to see so many positive comments from fans that have pushed the project to get approved. The team here at Capcom Japan really appreciates fans’ passion and support and will do our best to bring fans what they really want.”

Though concept art and other small hints at the game’s progression will continue to be shared on Facebook, twitter, and on Capcom’s official website.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 new sceenshots released | Could a photo-mode be coming to the third-person zombie shooter?

[metaslider id=1395]

 

Resident Evil Revelations 2 is releasing along with a remake of the original Resident Evil in 2015, and Capcom’s original inspiration of dark, twisted, and gory worlds looks to get rejuvenated with the release of both games.

Revelations 2’s new screenshots show a visually great game for the $25 digital price tag ($40 physical), but after playing some of the gameplay at New York Comic Con, some differences are evident.

It seems some of the screenshots have been edited in post-processing, but with the recent trend of “photo-modes” in games (The Last of Us, Shadow of Mordor, Forza Horizon 2 and more), it could be hints of a similar mode coming to Revelations.

Nothing is for certain as of yet, but even without the edits made to this gallery the game looks fantastic and plays just how most people would want a Resident Evil game to play. The movement is slower, the ammo is scarcer, the zombies are dangerous, and your two-person party is presented as tough, but vulnerable in the zombie-ridden apocalpyse.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 will be releasing in early 2015 on the Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 4, and Playstation 3.

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 returns to horror

RErevelations21
In a short look at Resident Evil Revelations 2 it seems that it is definitely going back to what made the original games so successful.

Some new playable gameplay was revealed at the NY Comic Con event Thursday, and Resident Evil Revelations 2 looks to continue to build off of the core of Revelations 1.

With the way Resident Evil games have been gravitating toward the action-shooter genre, it was refreshing to see a slower pace and a darker feel return to the series with Revelations 2.

Claire Redfield’s (joined by Moira Burton) return as a main character is looking promising. Her last full-game, Code Veronica was released nearly 15 years ago, and as her brother Chris has been evolving before our eyes, she has been for the most part out of the picture.

Claire and Moira’s characters alone helps bring back the classic feel, and while Claire is certainly a vet of the zombie infested world by now, she isn’t quite as physically intimidating as Chris. The character styles and backgrounds make them tough, but more vulnerable — and that adds to exemplifying the horror elements of the game.

Though it’s not just her character weaponry is limited this time around, and shooting is not as precise. You don’t feel like you can take on an entire horde at any moment. Claire takes just a moment to really steady her gun for an accurate shot.

Claire and Moira's experience in Revelations 2 greatly differs from that of the other recent games.

For most of the game, it shares many general qualities with Resident Evil 4. The movement, arsenal, and pace of action are similar to that of the 2005 title.

While the available gameplay to preview is still limited, you may even have less ammo and weapons than Leon Kennedy did. The demo didn’t have a focus on the shooting elements — for the most part it set the tone of what to expect.

The release is still slated for “early 2015,” but with the remake of the original Resident Evil is coming next year as well, it seems all zombie-lovers will get their fix in the coming year.

Concept teaser for Resident Evil Revelations 2 revealed

With an Resident Evil 1 HD remake announced as well, Capcom is now unveiling an intriguing teaser trailer for a sequel to Resident Evil Revelations.

As the young girl runs in the black and white trailer, the wrist-bands highlight who is friendly and who has fallen in the zombie-ridden world. It quickly turns from a world surrounded by the healthy living to a chaotic scene of zombie attacks with the living scrambling to stay alive. A very fitting setting for what Capcom always tries to convey in their Resident Evil games.

After being originally developed for the Nintendo 3DS, Revelations quickly gained popularity as it later was ported to the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and WiiU. Now, with home-consoles in mind from the start, the visual aspects of the game will almost certainly receive a massive upgrade.

The single screenshot gives off the typical Resident Evil vibes with a dark and bleak setting.

Originally leaked on Xbox.com almost two weeks ago where a single screenshot and the game’s boxart were revealed early, the surprise of the announcement is non-existant, but the excitement still remains high.

Revelations 2 will be available next year on Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. Surprisingly the title will not be coming to the WiiU considering the original Revelations was on the Nintendo console.

New Resident Evil remake trailer

Re-experience the world of Racoon City in Capcom’s recreation of their original Resident Evil due to release next year.

Some fans believe that the third person shooter has lost its horror essence over the last two decades of the franchise’s existence, but for those fans who want to experience the game that had originally defined the horror genre for video games, you’ll now have the opportunity.

Play as Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine and take on the terror of the zombie-invested world brought to players at a 60 fps, 1080p display.

Along with new 3D model tech, and options to opt for either the classic 4:3 aspect ratio or the widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, the remastered third person thriller looks to create an even more immersive experience this time around.

Resident Evil will be releasing on PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 4, and Playstation 3 next year.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 leaked on Xbox.com

Capcom hasn’t officially announced anything — nor has Microsoft — but a listing on Xbox.com revealed that Resident Evil Revelations 2 is at least in the works for Capcom.

Capcom looks like it will be releasing its first new generation Resident Evil game soon.
Nothing is official right now, but french gaming site “Gamer in a box” was first to report on the leaked screenshot and Boxart.

Resident Evil Revelations began on the Nintendo 3DS, and after gaining popularity on the mobile-gaming platform, it moved to the likes of the Xbox 360, WiiU and Playstation 3. Now, two years after the initial release, we see a glimpse of a sequel coming to at least the Xbox 360 with the game’s box art and a single screenshot being leaked on Xbox.com.

Biohazard is the title the Japanese know the Resident Evil series by.

The single screenshot certainly gives off the typical Resident Evil vibes with the dark and bleak setting which should be enough to get fans of the franchise excited. While it isn’t known exactly which consoles it will be coming to (other than the Xbox 360), it’s not too far-reached to say that it will be coming to the new-generation platforms.

Now, given the game is being developed with home-consoles in mind from the start, the quality of the game is sure to take a huge jump over its predecessor with a much greater amount of development resources waiting to be taken advantage of this time around.

No details were able to be grabbed regarding a release date or any of the game’s features/details, but Capcom will certainly formally address the new Resident Evil soon.

The leak comes only a few weeks after Capcom’s official announcement of a remake for the original Resident Evil.

Capcom is returning to the roots of the Resident Evil series with a new remastered version of the original Resident Evil.

It’s been nearly two decades since the release of Resident Evil and twelve years since the release of the remake back in 2002. The incredible presence it gave to the survival-horror genre is certainly not forgotten, and Capcom will be looking to give former fans and newcomers alike an exciting and delightfully creepy experience to follow through.

With incredible resolution improvements, new 3D model tech, and options to opt for either the classic 4:3 aspect ratio or the widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, the remastered third person thriller looks to create an even more immersive experience. For fans that want to keep in touch with the classic roots, the original control scheme will be available to select as well as a new updated control scheme that fits with more contemporary styles.

Get ready to revisit Raccoon City as Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine and take on the terror uncovered within the city.

Coming 2015, the remastered Resident Evil will be available on PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 4, and Playstation 3.
