Although the Resident Evil 2 remake has only been out for a few days, there are a number of fans who have already plowed through the contents of the survival-horror release to unlock its "true" ending, and those who have hit S rank to unlock infinite ammo. With this being the case, it's safe to presume that these players are eagerly anticipating the game's Ghost Survivors DLC, which is set to drop next month. Until then, players on PC can have a little extra fun by tinkering with mods, and one modder has added an unofficial playable character in the form of RE7's Chris Redfield.
According to a find from the Resident Evil Modding forum users ZOMBIΞALI and JTeghius Kittius, it looks as if the RE7 iteration of Chris Redfield is in the Resident Evil 2 remake's files, and players can utilize the assets as a skin for Leon's "Noir" costume. It's worth noting, though, that the mod's functionality isn't perfect, with some players reporting that there are issues when it comes to equipping weapons after applying the mod.
For those unaware, Capcom has gone with a wide range of different designs and artistic takes on Chris Redfield over the years, and the official version of the one seen above was initially introduced in Resident Evil 7's Not a Hero DLC. While it's definitely cool to have the option to make Chris playable in the RE2 remake, it's a safe bet that a majority of fans of the survival-horror franchise would have preferred if the mod in question were able to bring in assets from the character's original model in the very first Resident Evil.
Beyond the Chris Redfield mod for the Resident Evil 2 remake, it appears as if the modding community has been busy crafting other offerings, with one fan having recently put together a fixed-camera mode mod concept. As of now, though, the fixed-camera mod is not actually available for use, with its creator only having put it together for conceptual purposes.
The Resident Evil 2 remake is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
