Return to Raccoon City in this Resident Evil 2 fan remake

If Capcom ever gets around to a Resident Evil 2 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 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.
