Post-launch free content announced for Resident Evil 2 Remake

Capcom has just announced that a new game mode will be added for free to Resident Evil 2 Remake after its release. This will be the first post-launch free content that will be arriving to this highly anticipated remake, though there is no word yet on its ETA or whether it will be followed by additional free content.

This new free game mode will be called The Ghost Survivors. In this mode, gamers will be able to play as multiple characters with randomized elements and an in-game shop (this shop will not feature micro-transactions. Capcom claims that this mode will be very replayable and the only confirmed characters so far are Robert Kendo, a USS Member, and Katherine, mayor’s daughter (additional characters will be announced at a later date).

It’s also worth mentioning that the remake will feature two additional game modes at launch that players will be able to unlock: The 4th Survivor and The Tofu Survivor.

Resident Evil 2 Remake releases on January 25th and will be using the RE Engine. The remake offers a fresh take on the classic survival horror saga with breathtakingly realistic visuals, heart-poundingly immersive audio, a new over-the-shoulder camera, and modernized controls on top of gameplay modes from the original game.

The classic action, tense exploration, and puzzle solving gameplay that defined the Resident Evil series will return as players join rookie police officer Leon S. Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield, who are thrust together by a disastrous outbreak in Raccoon City that transformed its population into deadly zombies. Both Leon and Claire have their own separate playable campaigns, allowing players to see the story from both characters’ perspectives.
