New Resident Evil 2 Remake screenshots showcase Claire Redfield and Sherry in glorious detail

Capcom has released some new screenshots for Resident Evil 2 Remake, showing Claire Redfield and Sherry Birkin. Showcased at Gamescom 2018 for the first time today, players join college student Claire Redfield as she searches for her missing brother, Chris.

As she arrives in Raccoon City, she’s thrown into the middle of a zombie outbreak taking over the city. Dodging dangers left and right, Claire runs to safety in the Raccoon City Police Station. As she tries to find a way out of this nightmare, Claire finds Sherry Birkin, a young girl abandoned in the underground area beneath the police station. Together they face the iconic series boss and mutating enemy ‘G’.

Using Capcom’s proprietary RE ENGINE, Resident Evil 2 promises to offer a fresh take on the classic survival horror saga with breathtakingly realistic visuals, heart-poundingly immersive audio, a new over-the-shoulder camera, and modernized controls on top of gameplay modes from the original game. The classic action, tense exploration, and puzzle solving gameplay that defined the Resident Evil series will also return as payers will join rookie police officer Leon S. Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield.
