A playable version of original Resident Evil protagonist Chris Redfield character model is found inside the codes of Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Returning to the roots of survival horror with Resident Evil 2 Remake on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One from developer/publisher Capcom has also brought back series favorite protagonists Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield for fans after so long.

By the time college student and his sister Claire came to the city that was engulfed in T-Virus epidemic, Chris went to Europe investigating Umbrella Corporation headquarters. So, he had no reason to be around after surviving the Mansion Incident of 1998.

However, Chris Redfield character model was found thorough digging through RE2 save files but his design is based on the newly revamped concept from Resident Evil 7. Heck, you can even play as him in PC version of the game if you want and thanks to modders.

We agree that his eyes look kind of creepy and his mouth doesn't move when dialogues are delivered in Leon's voice but that is because it was never really meant for playing and Capcom probably didn't mean to reveal the model either.

The most obvious issue with this model that you cannot ignore is that his guns were not animated properly and that is why, they will be floating around him when player tries to holster them. To be fair, it was an unfinished model.
