The highly-anticipated remake of the classic Resident Evil 2 video game is now live and ready to play on Microsoft’s Xbox One family of consoles.

Resident Evil 2 is available in two versions; a regular version which just contains the main game and a special Deluxe Edition. In addition to the base game, Resident Evil 2 Deluxe Edition also comes with a variety of downloadable content (DLC).

Here’s the official list of included DLC. Of particular note is the Soundtrack Swap DLC which unlocks the ability to use the original game’s music and sound effects.

Note that each of these is available for individual purchase as well for those who have purchased the regular edition.

  • Leon Costume: “Arklay Sheriff”
  • Leon Costume: “Noir”
  • Claire Costume: “Military”
  • Claire Costume: “Noir”
  • Claire Costume: “Elza Walker”
  • Deluxe Weapon: “Samurai Edge – Albert Model”
  • “Original Ver.” Soundtrack Swap

The Resident Evil 2 video game plays perfectly fine on the Xbox One and the Xbox One S but, when played on an Xbox One X console, the visuals receive an upgrade to 4K Ultra HD resolution.
