Resident Evil 2 remaster screenshot of Claire from up close

The Resident Evil 2 remake will be coming this January 25th, and much like its predecessor, it seems to be bringing with it a whole host of improvements over the original game. There's the usual stuff like greatly enhanced visuals, better voice acting, support for high-end resolutions and stable 60 FPS, as well as some more interesting changes like significantly modernized movement and combat.

Since trying to explain all of this through words alone is a nearly pointless task, allow me to share with you the recently posted and rather lengthy preview. Have a look as it really is quite good:

While the gameplay is definitely a bit of a departure from the original Resident Evil 2, what with it not being extremely finicky, I have to admit I'm actually quite excited about the remake. There really does seem to be a great deal of passion behind the project, so even though all of the details might not be exactly the same, I can certainly see enough of Resident Evil 2 in here to make it worth at least a closer look.

Speaking of which, if you would like to learn more about Resident Evil 2 and its remake, you might want to head on over to either Steam or the official website. And just for good measure, here's one of the recently posted story trailers. Enjoy!
