Resident Evil 2 Texture Mod overhauls over 100 low-detail textures
Resident Evil 2's 2019 remake is excellent, delivering fantastic visuals, modern gameplay, and a top-class retelling of the original's storyline. Visually, one of the few criticisms that we have about the game visuals is its use of low resolution textures in many areas, but now that issue has been addressed by a modder called Ashok.
Ashok has created an "HD Texture Pack" for Resident Evil 2, which overhauls over 100 of Resident Evil 2's textures to make the game look better than ever. This mod can be installed using the Fluffy Manager 5000, and downloaded through Nexus Mods.
This texture pack uses Capcom's upgraded Resident Evil 3 assets and a selection of handmade texture to enhanced Resident Evil 2's visuals. Given Resident Evil 3's reuse of many of Resident Evil 2's locations, this is a clever move from Ashok. Not only does this mod make Resident Evil 2 look better, it makes Resident Evil 2/3 more visually consistent. Below you can see one of many examples of this texture pack's improved visuals.
PC modders have done a lot to improve Resident Evil 2's PC version, from removing the game's 30 FPS cap for distant zombies, to a full-on VR mod for the game. For those who want to alter gameplay (and make the game easier), mods are also available that can allow zombies to be killed by a single headshot, or give knives infinite durability.
