Resident Evil 2 Classic Costumes Now Available For Free
As Resident Evil 2 continues to earn praise for its terrifying atmosphere and disgustingly beautiful visuals, the game has also become well-regarded for its easter eggs calling back to the 1998 original. Capcom has now shown even further dedication to the beloved title with the release of low-polygon versions of player characters Claire and Leon.
Evoking nostalgia of late-90s graphics, the new DLC recently went live for those on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, for the wonderful price of… free! Capcom celebrated the zero-cost release over social media, where the publisher couldn’t help but reference the game’s infamous relationship with rapper DMX.

Arriving alongside the Ghost Survivors DLC, these classic costumes are a pretty fun throwback for longtime fans and provide a stunning reminder of how far the series has advanced in 21 years. As Resident Evil 2 could have easily attached a cost to these costumes, it’s extremely cool to see Capcom take a page out of Insomniac’s book and release them solely in appreciation for the fans.
Resident Evil 2 is out now for PC PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Those interested in getting their classic freebie costumes can get them here on Steam, here on the PlayStation Store, as well as here and here from the Microsoft Store.
