Resident Evil 2 / Biohazard RE:2 is a survival horror game developed and published by Capcom. Players take control of police officer Leon S. Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield as they attempt to escape from Raccoon City during a zombie apocalypse. It is a remake of the 1998 game Resident Evil 2.
The remake rebuilds the original game from the ground up and implements a variety of improvements. This allows for different gameplay, additional story, and much more compared to the original release.
Resident Evil 2 is not an open world game, although there is plenty of room for exploration and the game is by no means linear. If you’ve played the original, you’ll be familiar with the general gameplay of a RE game and how the focus is much more story involved with features of gripping gameplay.
As you advance through the story you’ll explore multiple unique locations, such as the sewers and the police station. A big emphasis of the gameplay is finding hidden items such as keycards, tools and devices which will in turn allow you to progress further through the campaign. There are of course a ton of different secrets to be discovered in the game world as well!
