Buy your way to S+ goodies on Resident Evil 2, but is it right?


In a controversial move, Capcom releases a DLC for all unlockable “Resident Evil 2” content, but is it worth it or even right?

I don’t know about you but there have been so many amazing games to be released in the first four months of 2019, that I just haven’t had the time to sit and grind until I get all of the goodies that come with said grinding.

Resident Evil 2 has so much unlockable content, but it takes a lot of work and a lot of time and, if you’re anything like me, you don’t have extra hours to try to get to S rank or S+. Thankfully, Capcom has our backs and you can now buy all of the unlockable goodies for a modest fee.

That’s right, I said it. You can buy all of the stuff that that other players have made the hours of grind for but I am not ashamed to say I gave Capcom about $4.99 of good old U.S. of American dollars to unlock the Flan character among so many other awesome things. While this DLC is THAT new and came out in early April, I bought it myself to see if it was worth spending the money for.

Yes, of course it is.

Was there any question if the instant gratification of having everything immediately unlocked WASN’T worth it? I absolutely commend those players that can unlock all of those achievements naturally through hard work. I only wish I was talented enough to be able to complete Scenario A in under 2.5 hours, but I am not THAT good of a gamer without trying repeatedly.

So, what gets unlocked in Resident Evil 2 with the DLC? In the main game itself, you get all of the infinite ammo weapons that would be unlocked through S rank and S+ rank for both Leon and Claire. This DLC also unlocks The 4th Survivor and Tofu Survivor without beating the game. You also unlock all of the extra characters in Tofu Survivor. Also unlocked is the concept art, the costumes and the character models. The Resident Evil 2 DLC is worth $4.99 for the infinite ammo weapons alone. The other things is just the cherry on top.

Some gamers hate the idea that Capcom did this, but as someone who is just way too busy to be able to ever play a game as much as I want, it’s a nice feeling to be able to get the same experience as someone who gets to throughout poke around Resident Evil 2. You can pick up the DLC on Steam, the PlayStation Store or Microsoft Store. If you haven’t played Resident Evil 2 yet, check out our review!
