The Witcher's Geralt Becomes Resident Evil 2's Newest Hero

Geralt of Racoon City? That's what we're looking at in this latest Resident Evil 2 mod, which takes the main character of The Witcher series and drops him into a world full of zombies and other deadly beings. It's yet another in a long string of RE2 hacks that add new characters. It might also be the most fitting.

This isn't Dr Disrespect in the main role or the Untitled Goose taking the place of Mr. X, ladies and gentlemen. This is Geralt of Rivia: a man who is no stranger to cutting down monsters.

Credit for the Geralt addition goes to modder Wiwilz, who apparently swapped out Leon's head with Geralt's, then got to work on the costume. And we have to admit: it looks pretty spectacular. Is it a little strange to see Geralt standing in the foreground while the Umbrella Corporation logo sits off in the distance? Sure. Does that take away from the awesomeness of playing as Geralt in Resident Evil 2? Absolutely not.

Who else could come to Resident Evil 2?

All these Resident Evil 2 mods have packed our brains full of ideas. Who else could be added to the game? Who else could you swap in to take the place of Leon, Claire, or Mr. X?

Actually, quite a few other characters have been modded in already.

If you want to stay in the Resident Evil universe, you could add RE3's Jill Valentine and almost become a Jill sandwich. How about a mod featuring Dio and Jotaro from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure? Yeah, apparently that's a thing. Cloud from Final Fantasy 7 is in the mix, as is a giant sock puppet.

And this isn't a character, but someone modded the "WELCOME LEON" sign in R.C.P.D. to say "YOU SUCK LEON." That's it. That's all the mod does.

But back to people for the game. Where is Lara Croft? Where is Master Chief? How has no one tried to drop Clementine from The Walking Dead in here? This is a world she'd thrive in! We suppose we'll have to hope and pray for these mods to come along.

In the meantime, though, there's plenty to check out already.
