PUBG Corp and Capcom have teamed up to deliver an unexpected crossover event featuring PUBG Mobile and Resident Evil 2. The crossover event was announced on the Japanese Resident Evil Twitter account. You can watch the brief teaser trailer above.

"This is not how I imagined my first day." It's about to get a whole lot worse for rookie cop Leon S Kennedy and a whole lot better for Resident Evil 2 fans who've been dying to go back to Raccoon City for some zombie killing. Sony's E3 2018 press conference included a surprise reveal of two trailers for Resident Evil 2 Remake, along with gameplay footage and something even better: a confirmed release date. We'll see the game on Jan. 25, 2019, on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The cinematic trailer starts off from the viewpoint of a rat (presumably one of the vermin that spreads the zombie-creating T-Virus throughout Raccoon City) as it watches a man being killed by one of the undead. The zombie is then shot by Leon, one of the game's two heroes. In a nice nod to the original game's roots, the rat crawls past an original PlayStation prior to the gore. The trailer then flashes to various familiar images including Claire Redfield (the game's other hero), a horrifying Licker, Officer Marvin … [Read more...] about Resident Evil 2 remake: Claire and Leon’s classic costumes return
