Resident Evil 2 launch trailer recalls how one night changed everything

Looks like your party has been cancelled

Tomorrow is the big day. This Friday, Capcom release one of the most anticipated remakes in video game history, as PS1 classic Resident Evil 2 finds itself reinvented, ready to creep out a whole new generation of players on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Capcom has released one final trailer to get fans suitably hyped – as if they weren’t already at fever pitch – for their return to the Raccoon City Police Department, as new-boy-in-town Leon Kennedy and snooping biker gal Claire Redfield battle an army of hideous creatures in hopes to survive the nightmare and discover what turned this humble burg into a tomb of the undead.

You can check out the trailer below and our own Chris Carter’s review right here. I won’t be playing Resident Evil 2 at launch but I’m pretty sure I’m in the minority there. Hope all of you who are have a spoopy weekend, and watch out for that reporter prick with the ponytail.

Resident Evil 2 launches tomorrow, January 25, on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
