A PC mod has replaced Resident Evil 2's terrifying Mr. X with an even scarier sight: Thomas the Tank Engine.

The mod - which is available now on Nexus Mods - replaces just the visuals, so for the complete and thoroughly terrifying experience, you might want to take the author's suggestion and switch the sound files, too.

In the description, the author just says: "Honestly, I dont know why i made this."

Here, take a look at it in action (thanks, PCGN):

The Resident Evil 2 remake already has a lot of cool reasons to replay the game - including the retro outfits for Leon and Claire that make them look like their 90s polygon-fuelled originals - plus a heap of mods, including one that lets you play Resident Evil 2 in first-person mode.

And just ICYMI, there's also another Mr. X mod that strips the Tyrant down to an Umbrella thong. You're welcome.

Aoife gave Resident Evil 2 a hearty recommendation in her Eurogamer review, stating that even though "some story beats have been streamlined and some gameplay mechanics have been embellished or added to, this is a reimagining that sticks remarkably close to its source material".
