Survival-horror remake Resident Evil 2 has been one of the highest rated games of 2019 thus far, receiving universal acclaim from critics and a largely positive consumer response. On the back of its success, and 33% digital sale, many gamers will likely consider picking up Resident Evil 2 in the near future. To further incentivize players, Capcom has released a new paid DLC onto the Xbox store today that instantly unlocks all in-game rewards for players.
For the price of $4.99 / £3.99 (or regional equivalent), players will be able to access the following rewards immediately that traditionally require the completion of specific in-game challenges.
For completionists, please be advised that the DLC appears to impact the base game only and that the moderately challenging The Ghost Survivors update will likely be unchanged by the above rewards
| Reward || Original Requirement |
|Extra Mode - "The 4th Survivor" || Complete any "A" and "B" campaign scenario|
|Extra Mode - "The Tofu Survivor" || Complete "the 4th Survivor"|
|Infinite Ammo Combat Knife || Find all 15 Mr. Raccoon Figurines |
|Infinite Ammo Samurai Edge Pistol || Complete any campaign scenario on Standard in under 3 1/2 hours|
|Infinite Ammo Submachine Gun || Complete any campaign scenario on Hardcore in under 2 1/2 hours|
|Infinite Ammo Minigun || Complete any of Claire's campaign scenarios on Hardcore in under 2 1/2 hours with 3 or fewer saves|
|Infinite Ammo Rocket Launcher || Complete any of Leon's campaign scenarios on Hardcore in under 2 1/2 hours with 3 or fewer saves|
|Costumes || Various requirements and paid DLC|
|Models || Complete specific in-game records|
|Concept Art || Complete specific in-game records|
DLC or updates of this ilk are usually divided points of conversation. On one hand, it makes the game more accessible for less experienced players, and far easier for busy achievement hunters. Conversely, many who worked hard to earn these in-game rewards legitimately and toiled for their hard-earned completion may be disappointed to see significant in-game aids offered at a pretty modest price point.
