Resident Evil 2’s free Ghost Survivors DLC arrives on February 15th, Capcom has announced.
Ghost Survivors, if you missed the original reveal, takes the form of three ‘what if’ stories built around characters you meet during Resident Evil 2’s main campaign. In a new post on the PlayStation Blog, Capcom likens Ghost Survivors to Resident Evil 2’s infamous The 4th Survivor and Tofu Survivor modes, but rather than guiding Hunk or an errant bit of soya through Racoon City, you’ll step into the shoes of three characters that, in canon terms at least, never survived the zombie outbreak.
There are, however, some major differences between Resident Evil 2’s classic Survivor modes and the new Ghost Survivor campaigns. For starters, while Tofu and 4th Survivor limit players to weapons provided at the outset, it’s possible to collect new equipment throughout the three new modes. Don’t expect to find them strewn around the environment though; items can only be acquired by defeating backpack zombies or by raiding vending machines.
