Leon Will Remember That – Resident Evil 2 Remake Will Track Your Choices

Make Your Choices Count

With the One Shot Demo for the Resident Evil 2 Remake hitting consoles and PC today, it’s also been revealed the game will track your decisions as you play – similar to Telltale games.

The system will allow players to access the information on the official Resident Evil 2 website and compare how their play through is going against other players.  Some of the data that will be displayed is the percentage of players who choose Leon over Claire (or vice-versa) and how many times both characters campaign has been cleared.

The system has been dubbed RE NET and will need to be activated in-game in order to access your personal records online.  Those personal records will be things such as your total game progress, stats, info and more. It sounds like there will be more content exclusive for players who opt into RE NET to be announced soon.

The big highlight for now is the choice between Leon and Claire, but the website states that once the full game is released the global data tracking will be used in a much larger capacity. One slight downside is that it doesn’t sound like this data will be displayed anywhere in game, meaning you will have to access the official website when the curiosity strikes.

Tracking trends seems to be catching on in gaming – Detroit: Become Human had a similar feature where you could see the different story paths players took at the end of each chapter. Is viewing how other people play the game a pro or a con for you? Discuss with us below!

The Resident Evil 2 Remake is releasing in just a few short weeks on January 25th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
