Resident Evil 2 (2019) is available for Windows through Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One consoles. Starting today, owners of the PS4 and Xbox One releases can upgrade to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S visually enhanced digital editions at no extra cost. The upgrade includes 4K support, improved framerates, ray tracing and 3D audio.

A retelling of the events of the iconic PlayStation title from 1998, Capcom's third-person survival horror title was built from the ground-up using the company's proprietary RE Engine. Supporting modernized controls and an over-the-shoulder perspective, players guide rookie police officer Leon Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield through Raccoon City's disastrous viral outbreak.

Music for the game is by Shusaku Uchiyama, Masami Ueda, and Tadayoshi Makino, among other composers. The four-disc Resident Evil 2 (2019 remake) analog record release by Laced Records of London features 46 music tracks, specially mastered for vinyl by Joe Caithness. The audiophile-quality, heavyweight 180-gram discs set ships through distributors Light in the Attic in Seattle and Black Screen Records in Europe.

The digital soundtrack for Resident Evil 2 (2019) is available for purchase through Steam, and for streaming on Amazon Music Unlimited. An excerpted 22-track "Best Selection" album is streaming on Spotify.

From the product page:
The soundtrack played a huge part in establishing the taut atmosphere of Resident Evil 2, as the composers shifted gears between dark ambient electronic music, thumping cinematic percussion, and audacious orchestral and choral passages. Capcom veteran Shusaku Uchiyama — who worked on the 1998 original — was given lead composition duties, and also arranged several of Masami Ueda’s original pieces.
