Watch an extended gameplay clip of Resident Evil 2 featuring Claire Redfield

The over-the-shoulder camera system is coming along nicely

This week at the Gamescom convention in Germany, Capcom unveiled new gameplay for its upcoming remake of Resident Evil 2. The new clip highlights a section of the game featuring Claire Redfield, one of the main characters from the classic game, first released in 1998.

The Resident Evil 2 remake was first announced in 2015, but not shown publicly until Sony’s PlayStation E3 press conference earlier this year. The game is more than a simple remaster and, as this new video shows, makes excellent use of a new third-person, over-the-shoulder camera. A set of new screenshots is also embedded below.

Capcom’s remake was also featured prominently during this week’s presentation by Nvidia. The graphics card manufacturer showed off a four-minute clip from the opening of the game, which was running at 60 fps at a 4K resolution.

Resident Evil 2 is expected to release on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One Jan. 25, 2019. The base game will cost $59.99, but several collectors editions are available. That includes one Japanese exclusive bundle that will run you about $900.
