The latest updates for "Resident Evil 2" reveal new gameplay details about the revamped sequel. Capcom aims to make the game the most violent and goriest title in the "Resident Evil" franchise due to the amount of horrific graphics and blood contained in the game.

Capcom also announced that they would showcase the sequel at this year's Tokyo Game Show event this month. The game made its debut at the Electronic Entertainment Expo event as players revisit the zombie-infested town of Raccoon City during the T-Virus outbreak. They reassume the roles of Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield as they solve the mystery behind the incident and escape the horrors of the city.

More gore and violence in 'RE2'

According to PCGamesN, "Resident Evil 2" could be the most violent and goriest title in the franchise due to how Capcom developed the graphics of the game, from the horrific character redesigns of the zombies and mutants to the amount of blood and corpses found in each area the players' explore.

The Japanese video game publisher used the RE Engine software from "RE7" to capture these moments, and they did a pretty good job of it by making each character and structure as very photorealistic as possible.

They have also used the software to redesign the looks of Leon, Claire, Sheryl, and more for the revamped sequel giving video game fans a fresh outtake from the original PlayStation 1 game.

“We want the game to be fresh yet familiar – nostalgic but new at the same time,” Game producer Tsuyoshi Kanda told PCGamesN. “The original game informs the motifs of the new title, but we want to betray fan expectations – in a good way!"

Capcom already showcased Leon and Claire's gameplay campaigns at E3 and Gamescom events, and photos of Ada Wong's character redesign have been leaked online. Co-producer Kazunori Kodai also announced that no new monsters are being introduced in the game as they wanted to close to the original as possible.
