Resident Evil 2 Remake Features Separate Campaigns For Leon And Claire
Fans of the original Resident Evil 2 may recall the campaign system bounced around a bit. Playable characters Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield each had an A and B campaign option that affected the other’s outcomes and encounters. For those who may have been hoping for that system to return may be disappointed, however, the remake is taking a fresh approach.
The Resident Evil 2 remake will feature separate campaigns for both characters, offering players more story and a new experience. According to Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, the game’s producer, the team felt that this system was “tedious for players” and involved a lot of backtracking. This is according to an interview with the producer conducted by Game Informer.
Players will get a much more streamlined experience, providing unique scenarios for both characters that will tell a broader story. While the characters will have separate campaigns, this doesn’t mean that they won’t have encounters with each other or affect the other’s story in any way. More than likely, Resident Evil 2 will still find Claire and Leon meeting up in the city, getting separated, and affecting each other’s stories in some way. The interesting part will be to see how each campaign affects the other as their stories intertwine.
Resident Evil 2 has a whole host of new and returning features that only serve to make for a more dynamic experience, including the revival of Tofu!
