“Ben’s File” Art Book

  • A 32-page book left behind by Ben Bertolucci, a freelance journalist who makes an appearance in Resident Evil 2. This file contains photos and files documenting events after the Raccoon City tragedy, and was filed away as a highly confidential document by the U.S. government. It’s never been seen by the public… until now.

Digital Soundtrack

  • A voucher code for a 25-track album featuring new songs from the remake of Resident Evil 2, as well as a selection of arrangements from the original game.

“R.P.D.” Renovation Design Poster

  • A diagram reminiscent of blueprints, this poster illustrates how the building was renovated and transformed from a museum to a police facility when work was being done on the building in 1969.

Artwork for both characters revealed

Aside from the reveal of the Collector’s Edition, the audience was treated with a lot of artwork for both Leon and Claire. The characters and their clothes were designed with the help of the extensive use of photogrammetry.

The development team wanted to give Leon a younger look in order to make him appear that he was on his first day on the job. Claire was based on the iconic scene where she rode her bike into Racoon City. With the new RE Engine, they made the city more wet and dark.

The upcoming Resident Evil 2 Remake will launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It will be available on January 25, 2019.
