Resident Evil 2 for PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PC release date is January 25 but it seems that Capcom's survival horror re-imagining has had its street date broken this weekend. According to reports, stores in the US have been selling Resident Evil 2 over the weekend with images of retail copies surfacing on the series' subreddit. This comes nearly a week after it received a demo on PSN, Xbox Live, and Steam. Leaked copies for it appear to be the PS4 version of the Resident Evil 2. Furthermore, the game's opening featuring one of its protagonists, Claire Redfield has been put online too.
If you're hoping for an early release for Resident Evil 2 in India, this is unlikely. Reason being, multiple retailers speaking to Gadgets 360 have said that that they don't plan to break Capcom's release date in fear of missing out of upcoming games like Devil May Cry 5.
The Resident Evil 2 India price is Rs. 3,499 on PS4 and Xbox One while the PC version of the game is Rs. 2,999. Despite being a remake, Resident Evil 2's US price is $60 (around Rs. 4,200) which makes the India price for the game an absolute steal. The game is available for pre-order on Games The Shop and Amazon as well as local, offline retail stores.
Resident Evil 2's download size has been revealed courtesy of the Microsoft Store and it seems that it won't tax your bandwidth too much. According to the listing on the Microsoft Store, the Resident Evil 2 download size is 21.07GB for the Xbox One. The PS4 and PC versions of Resident Evil 2 should have a similar file size. The Resident Evil 2 release date for PS4, Xbox One, and PC is January 25, which is the same day Kingdom Hearts 3 is out in Japan.
Previously Capcom revealed a special edition for its upcoming remake of Resident Evil 2. Called ‘Resident Evil 2: Deluxe Edition', it comes with a couple of unique covers featuring the two protagonists – Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield – in addition to a bunch of downloadable content (DLC), including five costumes, a weapon, and the soundtrack from the original 1998 release.
Here's the full list:
Furthermore, the PC requirements for the game have found their way to Steam.
