Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Brings The Witcher 3’s Ciri to Racoon City
Ciri jumps into Racoon City in this PC mod.
You might like Ciri as she is in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, but how would the sword-fighting heroine fare in a more modern setting? Specifically, holding a shotgun as she’s chased through gloomy corridors by Mr. X?
Yes, you can play as Cirilla Fiona Elen Riannon in Capcom’s Resident Evil 2 Remake thanks to a mod from awimosa which is available to download and install for PC users here. The character model replaces Claire and also replaces the combat knives with Ciri’s sword, Zireael to further add to the crossover immersion.
At current, it’s known that Ciri’s face can look a bit odd in Resident Evil 2 Remake, but work is being done to rectify this as well as making more animations work for her face. Also, if holding the combat knives (or Ciri’s sword with the mod) the sword itself remains strapped to her body. You can see an example of how she looks in the game below.
According to mod creator awimosa, CD Projekt Red has allowed the creation of the mod which can be installed using a mod manager. The screenshots available on the modifications page show Ciri in both cutscenes and in-game environments. Ciri herself seems to fit right into the atmospherical world of Resident Evil 2 Remake.
We’ve seen other mods for Resident Evil 2 Remake such as introducing the young Ellie from The Last of Us into Racoon City. We’ve also seen NieR: Automata’s 2B wandering the haunting grounds. There are bundles of other mods too, such as this humorous mod that replaces Mr. X’s frightening physique with a large scale version of House House’s Untitled Goose Game Goose. Now, imagine Ciri running away from that.
Resident Evil 2 Remake is available for PC, Xbox One, and PS4 but the mods will only work with PC versions of the game.
