Resident Evil 2 may share a name with a 20-year-old game, but they’re not the same. In 2019 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One, it’s more of a remake than a remaster.
In Polygon’s Resident Evil 2 walkthroughs, we’ll take you through every step of the game’s two campaigns — one for Claire, one for Leon — which are similar in parts but very much different in others. You’ll know where to go and what to pick up along the way (and feel confident that you don’t miss anything). If you’re looking for keys, puzzle solutions, lock combinations, access to safes, how to find medallions, where to go next, or how to get into that one room, we’ll help you.
In our other guides, we’ll teach you about specific parts of the game, from a handful of tips to get you started to figuring out if a zombie is actually dead.
