We’ve seen numerous attempts to recreate the old classic Resident Evil games in modern game engines in the past. And while we, most probably, won’t see any of them reaching a playable state, we can somehow satisfy our desire for such a thing with smaller tech demos.
Take for example this recreation of Resident Evil 2’s police station main hall in Unreal Engine 4. This demo was created by CryingHorn and looks really cool. What’s even better, though, is that CryingHorn has released his demo to the public. Great huh? Well, things get better as CryingHorn has also released a VR version of this demo.
CryingHorn has used the Umbrella Corp’s demolished police station as a reference point. As such, he did not really create/model any of the models or textures used here. Still, the end result is great and gives as a glimpse at what the official Resident Evil 2 remake may look like (unless of course it’s more of a remaster and not a complete remake).

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
