While Resident Evil 2 remake will not feature “zapping” like in the original Resident Evil 2 on PlayStation, the game does have unique stories for both Leon and Claire, as they try to solve the mystery behind Raccoon City’s zombie outbreak, and ultimately find a way out.
Here is Capcom’s description of Leon and Claire’s campaigns:
Fans of the original Resident Evil 2 will instantly recognize certain key players in the story that have become iconic over the years. Claire will begin to uncover the sad truth of the Birkin family, guiding a young Sherry Birkin through the underbelly of the R.P.D. and the sewers that are just underneath the city in a desperate bid to escape. While the city surface is covered in the living dead, there are far worse creatures hiding in the depths. Bio weapons that want nothing more than to crush Claire are lurking in the shadows, including a terrifying, mutated monstrosity that seems to be tracking down Sherry for unexplained reasons….
Meanwhile, Leon will have his own path to explore, putting together the pieces of what happened in Raccoon City as he meets up with Marvin Branagh, Police Lieutenant and one of the only survivors of the outbreak in the R.P.D., and the mysterious Ada Wong – a woman who has her own reasons for sifting through the remains of the city. Leon’s investigation will take him far beyond the museum turned police station and into a plot far greater than he could ever have imagined. What will the rookie cop discover as he dives into the depths of the outbreak that’s consumed the city?
