The upcoming Resident Evil 2 Remake will be released very soon by Capcom and the ESRB has finally got a chance to rate the game. The rating summary gives you more details about the type of content fans can expect to experience when the game comes out early next year.
Much like the original game from the ’90s, the Resident Evil 2 Remake is rated M for mature players over the age of 17 and up. The content descriptors are for “Blood and Gore, Intense Violence and Strong Language”. Due to the realism of graphics these days, expect the remake to be way more scarier than the original PSOne classic.
The rating summary says: “This is a survival-horror game in which players assume the roles of a policeman and/or a college student battling a zombie outbreak in the fictional Raccoon City. From a third-person perspective, players explore environments and use pistols, shotguns, tasers, explosives, and flamethrowers to kill mutant creatures and zombies. Combat is highlighted by realistic gunfire, screams of pain, and large blood-splatter effects. Cutscenes also depict instances of intense violence and gore: a character’s throat ripped out by a mutant’s teeth; a man’s body cut in half, leaving entrails dangling from his torso; a man’s head crushed by a zombie’s hands. Some areas also depict mutilated corpses/zombies with exposed organs and viscera. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in the dialogue.”
The Resident Evil 2 Remake will be released worldwide on January 25th, 2019. The game will be available for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. No Nintendo Switch version has been announced. Capcom already released a remake of the original Resident Evil game a few years ago and that got a lot of critical praise. The sequel should be even better as it adds more characters and enemies for the players to kill.
