After losing its way in recent years, many players were in doubt about the future of Resident Evil. It begun to abandon its survival horror roots in exchange for explosive, over-the-top action. It was leaving behind much of what made it great it the first place. That all changed with Resident Evil 7, a glorious return to form that not only felt like classic Resi, but revolutionised it in some exciting ways.
Now, a new vision of Resident Evil 2 is on the way using the same technology that helped the seventh instalment shine. It looks fantastic and plays just and well, and you can read both of our hands-on previews below alongside everything you need to know about the Resident Evil 2 Remake.
