Now Playing: Resident Evil 2 Getting Free DLC Mode - GS News Update

Capcom has announced that the remake of Resident Evil 2 will see the return of both The 4th Survivor and The Tofu Survivor bonus modes. Both come included in the game at launch, but you'll need to unlock them.

The 4th Survivor mode allows you to play as Umbrella Security Service special Agent HUNK, the fourth person to survive the events of Raccoon City, in a standalone canon story. Meanwhile, The Tofu Survivor puts you in control of a person-sized piece of tofu. This story, unfortunately, is not canon. It is, however, much harder to complete, as the piece of tofu can only carry and use a combat knife, two green herbs, and one blue herb.

Both modes existed in the original 1998 Resident Evil 2, but Capcom has not announced if you'll unlock them in the remake via the same method used in the original game. Previously, you unlocked The 4th Survivor by completing both of Leon and Claire's scenarios with an A rank. For The Tofu Survivor, you just had to get six A ranks, but they needed to be achieved consecutively and in under two and a half hours.

If you want to try the new Resident Evil 2 before buying it, there's a "1-Shot" demo now available. The demo only lasts 30 minutes, whether you beat it or not. So don't take too much time being horrified by the disgusting sights and sounds. The demo will expire on January 31, a few days after the launch of the game.
