Resident Evil 2 Remake Takes Gore To New Levels Of Gross

Boasting proprietary "wet gore" tech!


Resident Evil has been known as a horror mainstay, even given its campy dialogue. Resident Evil 2 borrows liberally from later entries to make it more modernized horror, and given our look at E3 2018, a big part of that feeling is the visual style. There's no way to sugar-coat this: Resident Evil 2 is gross.

You can see for yourself in the video above. The famous doomed officer spills his guts like never before, leaving a mottled trail of viscera in his wake. It looks meaty and believable in a way that the series never has.

Now Playing: Resident Evil 2 Remake Gameplay - E3 2018

Capcom knows this, and has made it a selling point for its upcoming survival horror. A press release boasts that the proprietary RE Engine provides a photorealistic style, and "grotesque hordes of zombies are brought to life with a horrifyingly realistic wet gore effect." It's all enough to make the spine crawl, and it's likely only a taste (gross) of the final product.
