Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Lets Players Shift the Perspective to Fixed Camera

Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Lets Players Shift the Perspective to Fixed Camera

If you want to add more replay value to the Resident Evil 2 remake then a mod that shifts the perspective from third-person to the traditional fixed camera might do the trick.

Roughly five years after the Resident Evil 2 Remake was released, a modder has finally added fixed camera angles to the PC version.

NexusMods user alphaZomega’s RE2R Classic mod allows players to shift to fixed camera angles, bringing back the original perspective from the 1998 survival horror classic. The mod’s listing page notes that “over 1,700 fixed cameras are all fully placed” and users who install it can complete the game from start to finish in this perspective.

As you can see from the screenshots above, the mod greatly changes the mood of the Resident Evil 2 remake, with the restriction making it more tense by adding blind spots for enemies.

Fans have debated the use of fixed camera angles since Capcom moved away from them in the original Resident Evil 4 released in 2005, instead favoring third and then first person cameras. While official support for the perspective is gone, mods like the RE2R Classic offer players the best of both worlds.

Resident Evil 2’s remake was a huge success, as while it was not the first Resident Evil game remade, it kickstarted a crusade for Capcom. Resident Evil 3 and Resident Evil 4 remakes followed, all running on the same game engine.

In the case of Resident Evil 4 Remake, Capcom announced it has sold seven million copies since its launch in 2024 on PC, PlayStation, Xbox Series X/S, and Apple devices.
