It May Happen: Resident Evil 2 Fan Remake Nears Finish
I remember hearing constantly about Resident Evil 2 fan remakes in the last couple of years. Time has been kind to other members of the series, including the HD Remaster of the Gamecube remake and the “elite” 1080p version of Resident Evil 4. Now it appears, thanks to a recent Eurogamer update, that the fan created (and free) Unreal Engine 4 remake of Resident Evil 2 is only a couple of months away. This version takes the over-the-shoulder style of Resident Evil 4 and brings back the classic sequel we all anticipated for two years on the original Playstation. No word yet on what Capcom has to say about it – clearly it has remained silent on the topic – but if you really want this game you will want to grab it the second we post the download link.
Fred’s Take: I fear this is going to be one of many titles that’s probably best left in the creative memory of what it used to be. That said, I will gladly pick up this free version of the game (and possibly even donate some money provided it’s the stellar effort in this video) and see how I feel. Who knows, perhaps it will be the breath of fresh air I’ve been waiting for from Resident Evil.
