  • Release: 2018

Much like the first installment of the Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil 2 will soon receive its own full HD remake. The video game doesn’t have too many details out as if we’ll see any specific changes from the originalResident Evil 2 video game that launched back in 1998.

However, one thing is for sure, this is a remake built from the ground up rather than a remastered edition. Unfortunately, there’s no release date or specific platforms announced for the video game though it’s likely the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms will be receiving the title. What’s uncertain is if we’ll also see the Nintendo Switch will potentially also receive a port of the game.

Upon Big Boss leaving Mother Base, a wormhole opens up and begins to absorb the remaining soldiers. Tossed into a new reality, you’ll find yourself against a slew of hostile zombie-like creatures.
