Just announced on Capcom's Resident Evil 2 Launch Event Stream. Ghost Survivors is a free content update for REmake 2 that will be hitting post-launch, no date yet, but it's a new game mode where you can play as multiple characters, it'll be a mode with randomized elements, an in-game shop (not micro transactions, earn points in-game by performing well), and should be very replayable they say. Hints it might be like a randomizor/rogue mode, but no 100% at this time. Confirm that Robert Kendo, a USS Member and Katherine (mayor's daughter) are playable in it, surprisingly the characters from the main game not confirmed playable at this time (but say more characters to be revealed).

More info to come soon.

---

SLIGHT UPDATE: Not much more, but this mode seems it'll be dished out in volumes over time, three volumes, the first one will hit at an unknown date, have Kendo, a USS Member, and Katherine playable. The mode may have a loose "alternate reality" story mode and randomized rogue-like mode, but it's a bit unclear right now. Confirmed this first volume will include a brand new enemy that's not in RE2 normally, and again is a free content update.

Something akin to mercenaries but with more innovative ideas.

I remember back when RE5 launched everyone was playing mercenaries and it was really fun, too! RE7 needed a mode similar to it to improve it's longevity and even though it kinda had it... it felt severely under developed.

Remember when Capcom charged $5 dollars for an unlock code to play vs mode in re5? Good times

Glad this is free, REmake 2 seems like it’s gonna have tons of content that you can replay a ton.

I was hoping for something like RE2's Extreme Battle mode and this sounds WAY better, goddamn.

If the rumours are to be believed then both Chris and Ethan will be in it. Which is probably going to be their RE Engine models.
Oh fuck, please put Jack and Joe Baker in here.

Back in those days developers pretty much charged for every piece of DLC ... sad times but thankfully I wasn't all that broke either lol

If Capcom decide to Release a Raid Missions DLC similar to Resident Evil Revelations 2, I will play the shit out of it.

Saying this, I hope to see in this Roque-like [if true] DLC different enemies from other games of the series. Like it happened in Raid Missions.
How cool it would be if out of nowhere to see a Hunter appear behind you and be in shock. This happened to me in Raid Mode as well.

No chance, if they cut enemies in the normal game they wouldn't create new ones for this mode. I think the best we can hope for is recycled RE7 enemies since they were made in the same engine.

It will be great if every RE characters under the sun are playable. Chris, Wesker, Shiva, adult Sherry, Nemesis, Jill, William Birkin, Spencer, Steve Burnside, Barry Burton, etc

The least they can do is to put new monsters at least. Like I said in arnothe Thread, I would love to see concept art of a Spider with human limbs become real at last!!!

Your timing is fun since just had a small update, this mode apparently is being released in volumes as free updates, and confirmed it'll include a new enemy not in the main game in the first volume, but no clarification of what it may be.

People think raid mode, but I was hoping for Outbreak-style procedurally generated survival horror.

Give me Outbreak, not Raid mode.
