Upcoming Zombie Games that Proves the Genre Just Won’t Die
Resident Evil 2
Capcom is a big winning streak at the moment following the success of Monster Hunter World and Resident Evil 7, but it’s the next in a line of remakes that the publisher has indicated an interest in pursuing that us most excited.
Resident Evil 2 for PS4 could be shaping up as the definitive Resident Evil experience and one of the best remakes of all time. The demo has already gone down a treat with gamers, racking up 1.4 million downloads since its launch.
For many, Resident Evil is the franchise that popularized zombie games, but one that hasn’t quite been itself over the past decade –with the exception of 2016’s superb Resident Evil 7.
As good as the whole first-person, house-full-of-crazy-family-members was, though, Resident Evil 7 was a different flavor of survival horror.
The upcoming remake is a return the series’ roots, by comparison, taking us back to where things all began: traditional zombies, R.P.D officers, and police departments that rely on absurdly obtuse puzzles to lock secret doors.
Of course, it’s been given an all-new makeover with sublime graphics, new content, and the over-the-shoulder Resident Evil 4 camera angle so beloved from that game. So no more tank controls and wonky voice acting… sign us up!
