Capcom’s Resident Evil 2 has added a new microtransaction that lets you unlock everything. The price? $5 USD / £4 / $7.50 AUD.
The «All In-Game Rewards Unlock,» as it’s called, provides immediate access to the 4th Survivor and Tofu Survivor modes, along with costumes, weapons, and concept art. Among the weapons included are the Samurai Edge handgun, LE-5 submachine gun, ATM-4 rocket launcher, and minigun, all of which come with infinite ammo, according to Eurogamer.
That’s notable because ammo scarcity is a factor in Resident Evil 2, so these weapons ensure you are always prepared.
All of these items are normally available through gameplay, so this option is available for those who want to speed up progress. The microtransaction is available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
Resident Evil 2 launched in January, and it has been a big hit. By Capcom’s latest count, the title has shipped more than 4 million copies worldwide.
GameSpot’s Resident Evil 2 review 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.»
