The action of Resident Evil 2 is set after the events shown in the first installment – nearly all of the citizens of Raccoon City have been infected by a mysterious virus, which changed them into bloodthirsty zombies. Once again, a player gets to control two characters – this time around it is Leon, a young police officer and Claire, a journalist. Their task is to save Raccoon City from complete destruction and stop the virus before it spreads all over the world.
