Diehard fans of the original Resident Evil 2 might find something interesting in an upcoming PC mod entitled; Resident Evil: During The Storm. It’s being made by Resevilnemesis30, who some fans may recognise as producing other RE2 mods such as Mortal Night.
Not much is known about the main bulk of the campaign at the moment but we do know it brings back a Resident Evil Outbreak character, Kevin Ryman.
What we do know is that the mod takes place at the very start of what we now know as “The Raccoon City Incident”. The gameplay involves managing the limited resources of the R.P.D. building before it gets entirely overrun by the beginning of the main RE2 campaign. R.P.D. officer, Kevin Ryman must travel through changing areas of Raccoon City as the outbreak is beginning with different choices affecting the overall outcome of the game. This promotes multiple playthroughs in the usual Resident Evil style of play.
Chapter Play Has Potential
As for actual content, it looks like rather than one full campaign, we will have chapters to work through. This could potentially tie in to more RE: Outbreak style gameplay with different characters and scenarios showing multiple perspectives of the viral outbreak. The game will be attempting to remain as close to canon as possible so will be borrowing elements from the aforementioned RE: Outbreak and Outbreak File 2.
Not being an official title means no official release dates but there are a steady stream of update videos being posted on Resevilnemesis30’s YouTube page.
