If you are really dedicated to Resident Evil lore, then the latest announcement from Capcom may be up your alley. The Resident Evil 2 remake will be made available in a Collectors Edition as well as a Steelbook Edition for the PS4 and Xbox One.

The former, which is limited as usual with these things, includes the Steelbook edition along with the below:

  • 12” Leon Kennedy Figurine
  • Limited Edition R.P.D. Keys
  • Collector’s Item Box
  • Artbook & Soundtrack CD
  • ‘Made in Heaven’ Pin Badge
  • Poster
  • Deluxe DLC Pack Card:
    • ‘Original Version’ Soundtrack
    • Leon Kennedy Costumes: Arklay Sheriff and Noir
    • Claire Redfield Costumes: Military, Noir and Elza Walker
    • Deluxe Weapon: Samurai Edge – Albert Model

As to how much of a bite snagging this would cost you, it’s a seriously frightening R4 000, that, depending on your resources, may leave your budget huddled and whimpering in a corner.

An alternative, if you are still a fan but somewhat less die-hard, would be to pick up the Steelbook edition. This would contain the full game as well as Elza Walker costume DLC for Claire Redfield. Although its price hasn’t yet been confirmed, you can expect it to be well below that of the Collectors edition. Both editions are slated to release 25 January on the PS4, Xbox One and PC.

In case the title hasn't crawled up onto your radar yet. or if you just like spine-tingling horror, you can catch up with the duo of trailers below.
