Resident Evil


 

For a single-player title, Resident Evil 2 isn’t lacking in content. You’ve got both Leon and Claire’s stories, plus their 2nd Runs, varying difficulty levels, and the more action-oriented Fourth Survivor mode once you’ve thoroughly explored the RPD station and routed the evil Umbrella Corporation. Oh, and there’s a mode where you can play as a giant slab of tofu. No, I’m not kidding.

But, apparently, that’s not enough, as Capcom has announced yet another mode that will add three more playable chapters for free.

Ghost Survivors Mode will put you in the shoes of three side characters that don’t fare quite as well as Leon and Claire over the course of the Raccoon City outbreak—gunshop owner Robert Kendo (in “No Time to Mourn”), mayor’s daughter Katherine Warren (in “Runaway”) and a forgotten soldier from Umbrella’s security force (in, um, “Forgotten Soldier”).

Ghost Survivors will launch with a free update on February 15th. Siliconera previously reported that these three episodes will feature randomized enemies and a point system that players can spend to unlock in-game items, giving it a somewhat roguelike feel. A press release from Capcom states that Ghost Survivors “explores ‘what if’ scenarios around victims of the Raccoon City outbreak and what happens if they survive the events of the main game,” so it doesn’t sound like these chapters will be canon.

In addition to the new mode, Capcom is also adding two new costumes that turn Leon and Claire into their original low-polygon selves. Just like Ghost Survivors Mode, these two costumes will be free and available on February 15th.

Resident Evil 2 is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
