Capcom announced today that a Steelbook Edition for the much awaited Resident Evil 2 will be coming to Europe when it launches next year for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Here’s an overview of the game via Steam:

A deadly virus engulfs the residents of Raccoon City in September of 1998, plunging the city into chaos as flesh eating zombies roam the streets for survivors.

An unparalleled adrenaline rush, gripping storyline, and unimaginable horrors await you.

Witness the return of Resident Evil 2.

Resident Evil 2 will be released on January 25, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
