Return to Raccoon City in this Resident Evil 2 fan remake

If Capcom ever gets around to a Resident Evil 2 (opens in new tab) remake, I hope it doesn't stray too far from the original's fixed camera angles - basically, if it was like the Resident Evil HD Remaster (opens in new tab) without the grainy backgrounds, I'd be happy. But until that happens, you can see what RE2 would look like as a Resident Evil 4-inspired third-person shooter in this fan project.

Resident Evil 2 Reborn remakes the streets, shops, and police station of Raccoon City in Unreal Engine 4 to pretty impressive effect. It would look even cooler if the whole thing wasn't so damn dark - that citywide mood lighting initiative really couldn't have come at a worse time - but it is still pretty early in development.

Developer InvaderGames plans to release a free alpha of Resident Evil 2 Reborn later this summer, Capcom legal department permitting.

Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo.
