Resident Evil 2 Remake Adds RE3 Tie-In Achievement

Chasing Jill.

9 Comments

Capcom officially pulled back the curtain on its rumored Resident Evil 3 remake earlier this week as part of Sony's final State of Play broadcast of 2019. The reimagined horror game is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam next April, but in the meantime, it appears this year's Resident Evil 2 remake is getting some kind of tie-in that bridges the gap between the two titles.

Users on Steam have recently discovered that a new Achievement was added to Resident Evil 2 (via Wario64). The Achievement was first spotted a few weeks ago--well before Sony's State of Play stream--but it didn't have a name at the time, leaving many to wonder just what it could be.

As it turns out, it appears the Achievement will tie into the upcoming Resident Evil 3 remake. The Achievement is called Chasing Jill and can be unlocked after you read a letter left behind by Jill Valentine. It's unclear when the letter will actually be added to the game, but you can see the Achievement for yourself on Steam.

Much like the Resident Evil 2 remake, the reimagined version of Resident Evil 3 makes some drastic improvements to the original. Not only have the visuals been significantly revamped, but the game forgoes the fixed camera angles of the original for a third-person over-the-shoulder viewpoint. You can watch the first Resident Evil 3 remake trailers here. The game also includes the asymmetric multiplayer experience Resident Evil Resistance.

The Resident Evil 3 remake launches on April 3, 2020. Those who pre-order the title ahead of its release will receive the bonus Classic Costume Pack, which features the original design for Jill Valentine and hairstyle for Carlos Oliveira. Capcom is also releasing a $180 Collector's edition of the game that includes a handful of physical bonuses, such as a Jill Valentine statue and hardcover art book.
