Capcom’s highly anticipated Resident Evil 2 remake is finally here, but there is still some more content in store for the survival horror game. The publisher has announced it will release a free Ghost Survivors DLC starting February 15, which will give players a chance to experience the game from three new perspectives.
According to Capcom, Ghost Survivors 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.»
