The Witcher’s Geralt Visits Raccoon City in New Resident Evil 2 Mod
You can now toss a coin to your Witcher--Geralt, that is--in this new fan mod for Resident Evil 2 that brings the White Wolf to Racoon City.
The Witcher‘s iconic protagonist, Geralt of Rivia, has been famous for his monster-slaying skills across CD Projekt Red’s games and the recent Netflix series adaptation that debuted last month. Of course, while Geralt has faced down a ton of different foes over the years, some of the most challenging monsters that he has to face yet might be waiting for him in Raccoon City through a new fan mod that has appeared for Resident Evil 2 on PC.
A new mod for Resident Evil 2 has made its way to Nexus Mods from creators Wiwilz and awimosa, which brings Geralt of Rivia into Raccoon City for players to explore and take down all sorts of monsters. Given that Resident Evil 2 has made for a surprisingly versatile playground for mod makers, it only makes sense that the White Wolf himself would roam the abandoned grounds of Raccoon City. Clearly it’s time for Geralt to come face-to-face with Mr. X and settle the score.
The Geralt mod for Resident Evil 2 comes right after a new mod that appeared earlier this week bringing Ciri into Resident Evil 2 by the same creator (Wiwilz), where RE2 players can now play as the iconic Witcher protagonists in the acclaimed survival-horror remake. Naturally, Ciri was a model swap for Claire in RE2, meaning Geralt is meant as a swap for Leon, complete with facial animations and an incredibly accurate model to how Geralt appears in The Witcher 3. The one downside is that while Geralt’s signature silver and steel swords are on his back, they’re purely cosmetic and can’t be used in-game. That said, we don’t exactly know if a silver sword would actually work on a Resident Evil zombie or not, but the knife seems like it might do the trick.
Aside from bringing The Witcher‘s Geralt and Ciri into the fold, several other mods have made their way into Resident Evil 2 to make the game both more frightening and hilarious. Since the game launched early last year, we’ve seen everything from The Last of Us‘ Ellie, to Pennywise the Clown from It, and even to the terrifying experience of being chased down by the Goose from Untitled Goose Game.
Resident Evil 2 is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, while The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. For a closer look at the Geralt mod in RE2, you can check out the images below, along with a video from You Mashub (YouTube):
