Resident Evil 2 Remake Will Have Ghost Survivors Mode

Capcom will be adding Ghost Survivors Mode to Resident Evil 2 Remake that explores an alternate story.

As we approach towards the most-anticipated release of upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake that is only days from launching on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 25, 2019, developer/publisher Capcom reveals a newly introduced mode in the game.

Last week, they eventually teased the fans with few images of HUNK and Tofu few days after releasing the 30 minutes long "1-Shot" Demo. Now, the developer has revealed of a brand-new content titled Ghost Survivors Mode.

Following E3 2018 Announcement of RE2 Remake, the return of HUNK and Tofu was confirmed. Fans were not sure whether these two will be standalone DLC but Capcom recently assured of including The 4th Survivor and The Tofu Survivor as bonus modes within retail copy.

People found out about Ghost Survivors Mode through a stream before it was officially revealed to be a post-launch content. You will be given the choice to pick Robert Kendo, Mayor Michael Warren's daughter Katherine or a fallen USS member.

By the looks of it, Ghost Survivors is the equivalent of Mercenaries or Raid mode for the game where none of the lead characters will show up. The name of the mode and the included character also suggests that it is focused on the ones who didn't survive the Raccoon City outbreak.

Katherine, Kendo and the USS member may end up creating an alternate reality B-side of the story and might ended up adding some new monsters even though the officials assured that RE2 Remake will not feature any new creatures or enemies.

Although RE2Make started with a troubled development after officially announcing the project back in 2015, the studio took everything that made it a classic in the first place and delivered something that is truly a masterpiece.

Originally Capcom planned to release the game on the 20th anniversary of the franchise but then they decided to give developers enough time to do proper justice to the title and the mind blowing graphical overhaul makes it all worth the wait.

Even before they could even release the game, Capcom could tell from the fan response they are receiving after the E3 demonstration that they have managed to lived up to fan expectation, something that is considered as a rare feat in video game industries.

While Resident Evil 2 Remake is coming to Steam, PS4 and XB1 in next few days, rumors of remake for Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is already in the air. They even plan to do a remake of Resident Evil HD Remaster if everything plays out nicely for the reinvention of this 1998 classic.
