How to Redeem Preorder Bonus DLC in Resident Evil 2
Resident Evil 2 comes in three different editions: Standard, Deluxe, and Collector’s. Upgrading past the Standard edition will get you lots of extra goodies, including original soundtrack material and even a Leon Kennedy figurine in the Collector’s Edition. Here’s how to redeem the preorder bonus DLC in Resident Evil 2.
Both versions of the game above “Standard” come equipped with a bonus DLC pack containing the following items:
- “Arklay Sheriff” costume for Leon
- “Noir” costume for Leon
- “Military” costume for Claire
- “Noir” costume for Claire
- “Elza Walker” costume for Claire
- “Samurai Edge – Albert Model” unique handgun
All pre-orders of Resident Evil 2 also include the “Chris” and “Jill” models of the “Samurai Edge” handgun. If you’re not familiar with these two characters, they’re the legendary S.T.A.R.S. members from the first Resident Evil game.
