Resident Evil 2 remake arrives tomorrow to much fanfare and thus far positive critical reviews (even if you discounted the silly mishap review that has now been rescinded). In fact, earlier this week pre-load finally went live for both PC and PS4 gamers whereas Xbox gamers have had pre-load made available since December last year. If you’re thinking of splurging on Capcom’s latest for release week, we’ve rounded up all the deals we’ve spotted across all platforms for Resident Evil 2.
As with usual new title release, discounts are aplenty for PC gamers on Resident Evil 2 Steam keys with discounts up to 25% off, while console gamers are relegated to lesser savings. Having said that, for PS4 gamers you can actually pick up a slight 7% off discount on the digital copy of the game. For Xbox One gamers, you’re completely out of luck in terms of a deal.
At GMG, you can pick up discounts on both the PC and PS4 digital copy of the game. Resident Evil 2 Standard Edition Steam key are discounted 25% off to $44.99 (login is required to see full discount), while the PS4 version is 7% off at $55.79. A similar discount applies for the Deluxe version of the game, but unless you’re into the various Leon and Claire Costume sets along with the OST, we think this premium version isn’t worth picking up given the lack of additional gameplay content. (Especially since Capcom has included classic Leon and Claire costume for all players “for free” as well).
Note: Login is required to see the full discount for Resident Evil 2 on the PC.
|Resident Evil 2 Deals||List||% Off||Sale Price|
|Resident Evil 2 / Biohazard RE:2 (Steam)||$59.99||25%||$44.99|
|Resident Evil 2 / Biohazard RE:2 Deluxe (Steam)||$69.99||25%||$52.49|

In terms of pre-order bonus, for the Steam copy of the game, you’ll receive two deluxe weapons in the form of the Samurai Edge, one for Chris and one for Jill. Also included is a wallpaper pack for Resident Evil 2 / Biohazard Re:2 (because finding wallpapers are so hard on the internet these days). While these aren’t anything to write home about, they are still nice little perks for early adopters.
If you’re one of the few who still has an active Best Buy GCU membership, you can get the 20% off discount if you pre-order Resident Evil 2 for both the PS4 and Xbox One. For those looking for the $10 reward certificate, unfortunately, this Resident Evil 2 has no further pre-order incentive at Best Buy. If you’re not in a hurry to play the game during release week, we suspect some discounts will be available in about 2-3 months (generally 20% to 30% off).
