Where To Get Resident Evil 2 For Only $40 On PS4, Xbox One

The price is already going back up.


One of the best games released so far this year is already on sale--Resident Evil 2, Capcom's remake of the horror classic--is selling for just $40 (33% off). Resident Evil 2 released on January 25, less than three months ago, so this is an excellent time to pick up the game for Xbox One or PS4 if you haven't already.

It's unclear how long this $20-off discount for PS4 will last at Amazon, and the deal has already ended at Best Buy, the Microsoft Store, and the PlayStation Store. GameSpot's deal is part of its massive spring sale going on right now, and that offer will end April 13. So if you're interested in playing Resident Evil 2, this might be the cheapest time to buy it for a while.

Get Resident Evil 2 on sale:


Xbox One

Resident Evil 2 has a dual narrative where you can play as either Leon Kennedy, a police officer who shows up late for his first day on the job to find himself in the midst of a zombie outbreak (terrible luck), or Claire Redfield, a college student who arrives in Raccoon City looking for her brother, recurring series protagonist and police offer Chris Redfield. After you complete one campaign, you'll unlock the option to play the second character's campaign.

The game received a 9/10 in GameSpot's Resident Evil 2 review, where Alessandro Fillari praised the game for its fantastic visuals, strong survival horror gameplay, expanded story, and more. "The remake is an impressive game for the fact that it goes all-in on the pure survival horror experience, confidently embracing its horrifying tone and rarely letting up until the story's conclusion," he wrote. "Though Resident Evil 2 has its roots firmly in the past, it reworks the familiar horrors into something that feels brand new and all its own."

Resident Evil 2's first DLC, The Ghost Survivors, released in February and introduces new characters, gameplay elements, and storylines. The DLC is free to download for all consoles.
