Arguably one of the best survivor horror games ever made, Resident Evil 2 has always been a bit on the shadowy side when it comes to Capcom’s series, as it was never remade unlike many entries in the series despite the huge fan demand. However, this is where InvaderGames comes.
Formed by several fans of the game, the studio’s goal is to try and recreate the fan-favorite RE2 using modern day technology embodied in Unreal Engine 4 and with a new camera system similar to the one in Resident Evil 4. The fan project’s name is Resident Evil 2 Reborn and it’s currently in Alpha phase.
“The goal of Resident Evil 2 Reborn is not only to recreate the universe of Resident Evil 2 in key next-gen with Unreal Engine 4, but create a game that deepen and expand the experience of the original Resident Evil 2, giving to the player a new game that combines the old soul of the original to new and interesting features written from scratch,” said InvaderGames.
Watch the two new gameplay trailers. The game is planned to be released for free on PC this summer.
