Resident Evil 2 Free DLC Update The Ghost Survivors Coming Next Month

Capcom will release a DLC pack for the Resident Evil 2 remake called The Ghost Survivors, which will be added to the game in a free update that releases February 15. ‘The Ghost Survivors’ will give players three new ‘What If?’ stories featuring three new playable characters. As previously confirmed, good ol’ Bob Kendo will be one of the three in the story ‘No Time to Mourn’, and he’ll be joined by a solider (‘Forgotten Soldier’), and the Mayor’s daughter (‘Runaway’).

The DLC will be added as part of a free update, but Capcom has not confirmed at this time what else will be included in the update aside from the DLC stories.

Resident Evil 2 players have been tearing through the different possible playthroughs since the game released last week, so the update should come at the perfect time to add more content as players exhaust their options. Leon and Claire are the two main characters players can finish the game’s main stories with, but like these upcoming DLC characters, they aren’t the only ones available to play as. Hunk and Tofu are also back in Resident Evil 2, though you’ll have to beat the game a few times to unlock them first.

Also included in the free The Ghost Survivors update are the blocky, low-polygon character models from the original 1998 Resident Evil 2, now “costumes” for Claire and Leon. See twitter below:

Katherine Warren, Robert Kendo and the forgotten Umbrella soldier join the plethora of playable characters and costumes already included in Resident Evil 2, including Leon S. Kennedy, Claire Redfield, Ada Wong, Sherry Birkin, HUNK and Tofu.

It’ll be nice to see the Resident Evil 2 story branch out with new perspectives, and it’ll be interesting to see if certain fates are the same this time around.

Resident Evil 2 is out now to PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One.
