About Resident Evil 2
Based on the original genre-defining masterpiece, Resident Evil 2 has been completely rebuilt from the ground up for a deeper narrative experience. Using Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine, this reimagining of Resident Evil 2 offers a fresh take on the classic survival horror saga with breathtakingly realistic visuals, heart-pounding immersive audio, a new over-the-shoulder camera, and modernized controls on top of gameplay modes from the original game.
Resident Evil 3 tells the story of S.T.A.R.S. member Jill Valentine as she escapes from a crumbling Raccoon City and the relentless Nemesis. Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine combines photorealistic visuals and a modernized control scheme with the series’ intense combat and puzzle solving to deliver the action-packed final chapter of Raccoon City’s collapse.
Resident Evil 7 biohazard set a new course for the Resident Evil series when it released, leveraging its roots while opening the door to a truly terrifying horror experience. A dramatic new shift for the series to first-person view in a photorealistic style powered by Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine, Resident Evil 7 biohazard delivers an unprecedented level of immersion that brings the thrilling horror up close and personal.
It is also worth noting that players who previously purchased each game on PS4 or Xbox One are eligible for a digital upgrade at no additional cost via the PS4 to digital PS5 upgrade option or Xbox Smart Delivery. A patch for all three games on PC will also be released around the same time for no additional charge.
