The highly anticipated remake of Capcom’s seminal 1998 PlayStation game Resident Evil 2 will be released Friday, Jan. 25, on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One. Polygon readers can save 25 percent off the PC version of Resident Evil 2, which normally retails for $59.99, at licensed Steam key marketplace Fanatical by using our exclusive discount code, ZOMBIE25.
Fanatical is currently offering 20 percent off Resident Evil 2 for all customers, so the code will take an additional 5 percent off the listed price. That brings the Standard Edition down to $44.99 (usually $59.99) and the Deluxe Edition to $52.49 (usually $69.99).
The code ZOMBIE25 will actually work on any games in the Resident Evil franchise, many of which are already discounted at Fanatical, including Resident Evil 7 ($16.95, usually $29.99) and Resident Evil 0 ($7.53, usually $19.99). The code will stack, so you can buy as many games as you want at that extra discount.
For fans of the hit survival horror series, the remake goes beyond doing justice to the 21-year-old classic. In Polygon’s review, Michael McWhertor calls 2019’s Resident Evil 2 “everything a video game remake should be.” A 30-minute demo, released on Jan. 11, gave players a taste of what to expect — a slick, modern overhaul of the beloved game with plenty of Easter eggs for loyal fans of the series. I played the demo once and watched another runthrough; both left me excited for what’s to come.
Polygon’s exclusive discount code will be available until Feb. 10.
