Capcom’s Resident Evil 2 remake offers plenty beyond the core campaigns for Claire and Leon. Two extra scenarios, starring Umbrella Security Services operative Hunk and STARS member Tofu, are also available. But if you don’t want to put in the work or the time to unlock them — Hunk merely requires completing the game’s A and B scenarios — you can do that now for a few extra bucks.

The All In-game Rewards Unlock item costs $4.99 and grants immediate access to “The 4th Survivor” and “The Tofu Survivor” scenarios, as well as costumes, the infinite bonus weapon, and in-game models and concept art. These extras can be unlocked through gameplay by meeting certain requirements, but if you don’t feel like tackling some of Resident Evil 2’s more difficult challenges, and still want all the stuff, Capcom’s giving you the option for a small fee.

Resident Evil 2’s in-game rewards unlock is available from the PlayStation Store, Steam, and Xbox Games Store. That time-saving purchase may be a little easier to swallow with all the free content — Ghost Survivors and the ’98 costumes for Claire and Leon — that Capcom has released since Resident Evil 2 arrived in January.
