Resident Evil 2's Free Ghost Survivors DLC Releasing This Month
See what happened to three other characters from Raccoon City in the free Ghost Survivors mode.
Capcom's highly anticipated remake of Resident Evil 2 is out now, and it's received a great deal of acclaim from fans and critics alike. Prior to its release, Capcom had announced that new content will be on the way to the game for free, and it turns out it's coming quite soon. The publisher has confirmed that the Ghost Survivors DLC will release on February 15.
Ghost Survivors gives players a chance to experience the game from three new perspectives. According to Capcom, the mode will "explore 'what if' stories of three unfortunate souls who never made it out of Raccoon City." In No Time to Mourn, players will be cast as the gunshop owner; in Runaway, they'll play as the mayor's daughter; and Forgotten Soldier places them in the boots of the soldier.
Resident Evil 2 launched for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 25 and has already proven to be a big success for Capcom. In the UK, the game debuted at the top of the physical sales chart. The title has also garnered near universal praise from critics, including GameSpot; we awarded it a 9/10 in our Resident Evil 2 review and called it "a terrifying experience like no other."
"Resident Evil 2 is not only a stellar remake of the original, but it's also simply a strong horror game that delivers anxiety-inducing and grotesque situations, topping some of the series' finest entries," wrote critic Alessandro Fillari. "But above all, the remake is an impressive game for the fact that it goes all-in on the pure survival horror experience, confidently embracing its horrifying tone and rarely letting up until the story's conclusion."
