Moreover, each merchandise within the recreation—from ammo pickups to weapons—is now a bodily object you could work together with. As a substitute of pausing to entry the stock, you’ll additionally be capable of bodily pull out completely different weapons stashed on Leon’s physique. Twin-wielding is in too, an enormous change from the unique recreation.
