Resident Evil 2 is being remade for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. With a Resident Evil 2 release date of January 25, Capcom has updated the game’s Steam page with more details. The Resident Evil 2 PC download size is 26GB. This makes it a bit bigger than the Xbox One version of the game that’s around 21GB. So far, the exact Resident Evil 2 PS4 download size is yet to be revealed. 26GB for Resident Evil 2 on PC isn’t too shabby when you consider how big most modern games tend to be, averaging around double of Resident Evil 2’s download size.

Yesterday Capcom confirmed that Resident Evil 2 would be getting a 30-minuted timed demo on Friday for all platforms. Finishing it would unlock a special cinematic trailer.

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.

  • Leon Costume: ‘Arklay Sheriff’
  • Leon Costume: ‘Noir’
  • Claire Costume: ‘Military’
