Resident Evil 2 - Spoiler Thread *UNMARKED SPOILERS*

There will be open full game spoilers from here on out. Last chance to bail. Spoilerphobes complaining about why other people choose to get as much information pre-release not welcome.

Anyone can do this by opening up the Steam demo's EXE in a HEX editor. It seems every single registered variable is listed there.












































Modes

Leon A
Claire B
Claire A
Leon B
Ada the Spy <- could just be the sections you control her in Leon's game
4th Surviver [sic]
Tofu Surviver
There's also numerous references to a mode called "Rogue", with variables about enemy kills, results screens, and a shop, but it might just be RE.net's stat tracker.

There is a list of "map areas"

Rogue mode sounds like the bonus mode they don’t wanna mention and we know Chris Redfields actor was at capcom recently.

I can double check this datamine stuff in a bit

Ethan, huh. Either that's just left over data from RE7 or... Well, if he is in this game, he'd be 14 years old. I did find how he acted in RE7 strange, as if he experienced something similar before. Him being a Raccoon City survivor would explain it.

Ethan? Maybe he can finally be a character.

Happy for Chris but I was hoping for Wesker, damn.

So the akuma is not true (yet).
Honestly i really thought Akuma would be in this game, there is so much fan service in REmake 2, i was positive they would sneak him in as a joke, maybe hes not playable but you can see his body in that secret room that requires 2 fingerprints, i think that's where he was suppose to be in the april fools joke.

A and B scenarios ?

But they explicitly said that won't be in the game :o

Maybe you unlock the original RE2 after beating this game ?

What if they retcon Ethan to be the forgotten son of Birkin or something.

Ethan Birkin and then he goes away and changes his name to Ethan Hunt.

Ethan being in the rogue mode would be fine. Just like how Rev 2 Raid had characters from 6 and Rev 1. Just plop a bag on his head if you don’t wanna show the face.

Only thing I think might be left overs is scenarios. I don’t think they’d hide that for this long.

The camera thing could end up being true because of the teaser at the end of the demo.

Man if they add Akuma and the camera the game would be the best remake ever made hands down. So much love has been put into it already so just imagine.

I would be so pissed if they include him and not Wesker or Jill.

What nonsense.

Resident Evil 6 had moments like that when they changed to the classic camera, it could just be to add to the reveal of stuff.

But I hope it's in there so fans are happy.

For the record, as far as I know, Fixed Camera is in as an unlockable (at the very least, they were 100% being worked on around the game's E3 reveal, but I wasn't sure if they'd gone through to the final game and still not certain, but there seems to be hints to it here), A/B Scenarios are a relic from development that were cut, and Rogue is a Rogue-Like Mode which randomizes enemy and item placement with different playable characters. First I've heard of Ada the Spy and I'm actually surprised Rogue might be something I guessed correctly from something else I heard.

EDIT: Thinking on it more, Rogue might be what turned into Hardcore in the final game. Don't take my mention of Rogue to be 100% here as it's me piecing together a few things from this and what I heard. A chance it could just have ended up as Hardcore Mode, or a chance it's its own separate thing, to be seen.

Be still, my heart. Rogue mode sounds dope too.

So there is going to be A and B scenarios? Is that what's suppose to be gathered from it? I recall them saying there wouldn't be, although I'm through the roof happy if there will be.

Oh fuuuuuuuuuck fixed camera AND the AB scenarios? Fuck man, I guess I shouldn't have kept my expectations in check cause they have seemingly given us everything we've been asking for.

Probably not, from what I know, A/B scenarios were cut in 2017 during development both for time and to focus the campaigns better. Keep in mind some things here are probably relics from development.
