Previously we speculated that Capcom would eventually sale the Resident Evil 2 DLC costumes and swap soundtrack, due to the ESRB classification of the game. It was then that the game was stated to include microtransactions and everyone started to panic. However, we assumed it would be for the costumes and soundtrack, which are included in the deluxe version of the game. Turns out we were correct.
As noted by Resetera member “krg“, it was noticed that on the Microsoft store there are two links that would allow you to redeem codes in exchange for two specific downloads. Due to this being in the store, I guess we can confirm that this means that those who don’t pick up the deluxe edition would be able to pick up these items afterward.
The first link is for the Resident Evil 2 Extra DLC Pack, which contains everything provided in the deluxe edition of Resident Evil 2. As of now, you can’t purchase this, however, it does state that this will be available soon.
- Leon Costume: “Arklay Sheriff”
- Leon Costume: “Noir”
- Claire Costume: “Military”
- Claire Costume: “Noir”
- Claire Costume: “Elza Walker”
- Deluxe Weapon: “Samurai Edge – Albert Model”
- Swap soundtrack
While the second link only provides the soundtrack for redemption. As for those wondering why someone would want to purchase an in-game soundtrack, this swap not only reintroduces the original music from the 1998 version. It also replaces the sound effects from the original version as well. Something fans of nostalgia or for someone who never played the game may want to check out.
Interesting enough, it does list the following on the store purchase. The way it is worded also gives the impression that this will be able to be purchased. Despite it currently saying that it won’t be sold separately.
