Capcom has announced what a Resident Evil 2 Collector’s Edition in Europe will contain.
It seems that European edition will mostly mirror North American one. It will contain a Deluxe Edition of the game, unique costumes for Claire and Leon, unique weapon, classic soundtrack, a 12-inch action figure of Leon, gaming artbook, poster and a soundtrack CD. All in all, not a bad haul.And that figurine looks great, let me tell you.
Resident Evil 2 will be a complete remake of an original game released in 1998. It will still follow the original story, though. You will take command of Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield, and you should lead them to the escape from Raccoon City. Said city is infested with zombies after T-virus outbreak. So, you will need to do your best to get out alive.
Although the story is the same, game mechanics will be drastically changed. No more of that horrible fixed camera. Say goodbye to terrible controls from the Dark Ages of Resident Evil. Now you will experience the game through the third-person perspective of Resident Evil 4. Even if I was at first dubious about such changes in the horror-oriented game, developers assure us that it will not detract from the atmosphere. I guess, we’ll have to wait and see. I hope that this game will work out and that we will see more classic remakes in the future.
Until then, stay tuned for more news at Silver Soul Gaming!
