Resident Evil 2 Free Story Content And Costumes Coming February 15
The Resident Evil 2 remake is finally here, and it’s absolutely awesome. Capcom’s high-fidelity remake of the horror-survival classic is everything fans could have wanted, bringing Leon and Claire’s story to a new generation of fans with fantastic gameplay and graphical polish. But Capcom isn’t merely content to rest on it’s laurels, and is preparing an entirely free content update for all Resident Evil 2 owners, including the new Ghost Survivors mode and some fun costumes.
As previously reported here, The Ghost Survivors is a new mode that introduces new characters and environments, relying on randomized elements and an in-game shop system to deliver a replayable gameplay experience. While details are still somewhat sparse, it stars Robert Kendo, Katherine Warren (the corpse on Chief Irons’ desk), and an as-of-yet unnamed USS Soldier in three chapters titled No Time to Mourn, Runaway, and Forgotten Soldier. Resident Evil‘s Facebook describes this as a selection of “what if” scenarios (I guess meaning non-canon, the last time they used that wording it was in regards to Operation Raccoon City) starring these three unfortunate souls who never made it out of Raccoon. Not a very long wait to find out what those titles mean, so get ready to jump back in when the update launches.
The other bit of content coming to Resident Evil 2 are a pair of retro costumes for Claire and Leon sporting a low-poly aesthetic. The fact that these are dropping for western players so soon is a nice surprise, as it was initially revealed to be part of a promotion in Japan, leading some fans to think it would be a while before they turned up in the west.
