Claire Redfield's story

According to the Capcom-Unity, Claire Redfield will have her own terrifying encounter in "Resident Evil 2," as she explores the deeper and darker corners of the Raccoon City Police HQ. Just like the original game, Claire's story involves her searching for her older brother, Chris. The game will feature her iconic motorcycle scene, as she ends up in Raccoon City, surrounded by death and zombies. She soon meets Leon, and they work together to solve the mystery and escape the city.

The Gamescom screenshots reveal Claire's new look, as Capcom developers redesigned her from scratch. She now has a new jacket and a leaner and more feminine biker outfit. The screenshots also revealed the new character designs of Sherryl Birken and her G-Virus mutated father, William.

Claire will accompany Sherryl throughout her campaign story and she will fight William in the underground structure of the RPD building. She is equipped with a Grenade Launcher with flame rounds to fight off William before they escape.
