Resident Evil 2 really becomes next-gen thanks to an Italian fan

Capcom recently released a next-gen update for the PS5 and Xbox Series X | S and PC console versions of the Resident Evil 2 remake and beyond, as many of you may already know.

From Resident Evil 7 (which you can find on Amazon ) to the latest remakes of the second and third chapter, they have all been embellished with patches , although not everything went as hoped.

In fact, the update initially created quite a few problems , so many that, in some cases, the games even stopped working .

After Capcom has decided to take an important step backwards in this sense, putting the proverbial patch , a fan has now decided to make the second chapter of Biohazard really next-gen .

As also reported by Wccftech , modder Giulio Guglielmi (also known as Massihancer), showed his latest implementation work of the so-called DDGI – Dynamic Diffuse Global Illumination – in the remake of Resident Evil 2 .

DDGI is a global illumination based on ambient probes , which maximizes indirect diffused illumination.

Looking at the comparisons of the game with the basic version you can see new dynamic lights and shadows, as well as realistic reflections that make everything more alive . A little below, a video showing the excellent result achieved.

As you can see in the video above, the DDGI appears to substantially improve the visuals of the Resident Evil 2 remake , although Leon’s hair is now flickering a bit.


As a reminder, you can have access to Massihancer’s mods by supporting him through the dedicated Patreon page .

Staying on the subject, would you spend $ 1500 on Resident Evil ? After seeing this object, yes, that is a truly unique statue of Lady Dimitrescu .

But not only that: last June of this year Capcom presented the first, true DLC of Resident Evil Village , which will stage a truly surprising protagonist .
