Resident Evil 2 is on the way, with a release date slated for January 2019. police unit, the pair and their team are sent to investigate mysterious happenings in the Arklay Mountains surrounding Raccoon City.
It’s the latest entry in the long-running survival horror franchise, and it already looks like it’s going to be one of the best in the series. The team members very quickly find themselves fighting for their lives and take refuge in a nearby mansion, and the rest is history.
The Resident Evil franchise itself has spanned countless titles over numerous consoles from the Sega Saturn to the Play Station 4. The game itself emphasizes puzzle solving, ammo conservation, and tense survival with a fixed camera and tank controls that defined early games in the series.
With so many titles to choose from, which ones do you absolutely have to play before the new game drops? The original and (some would argue) best Resident Evil game, this is an absolute must-play for any fan of the series, new or old. You’ll fight to unravel the conspiracy as either Jill or Chris and find out what’s really going on inside that mysterious mansion.
The game introduces us to several of the main characters of the series, namely Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine. It’s also a direct prequel to Resident Evil 2, and will explain the origins of the Raccoon City outbreak and the sinister Umbrella Corporation. His work takes him to a fictional African country to stop a black market bio-weapons dealer and track down a lead on the now-missing Jill Valentine.
Resident Evil 5 was met with mixed reviews from critics and players alike, but was, in many ways, a turning point for the series and remains a must-play. The game itself is more action-oriented than previous titles, adopting the over-the-shoulder camera and shooting mechanics introduced in Resident Evil 4.
Chris Redfield returns, now a member of an anti-terrorist organization known as the B. The emphasis on puzzle solving and survival is gone, replaced with tense boss battles and shootouts that are just as much of a threat to your survival.
The introduction of co-op play means the game is entirely playable with a partner, another first for the series.
Love it or hate it, it can’t be denied that this game is an excellent co-op experience that begs to be played with a friend.
Revelations is a prequel of sorts, set between the events of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5.
Players take on the role of Jill Valentine as she works to learn the origins of a mysterious outbreak aboard a ghost ship spotted in the Mediterranean Sea.
The game’s story is definitely a highlight here, moving away from the action-emphasis of RE5 and back towards the game’s survival horror roots.
