Resident Evil 4 Remake Mercenaries Mode it’s a fan-favorite post-game mode from the long-running series, but it’s missing from Resident Evil 4 Remake. Luckily, to celebrate the release of the long-awaited remake, Capcom has confirmed that the mode is on the way.
The Resident Evil 4 Remake release date has finally arrived, bringing what is widely accepted as one of the best PC games to a new generation. We join Leon Kennedy after the destruction of Raccoon City, as he finds himself in Spain among the terrifying Ganados infected with Las Plagas. While we still don’t know how The Mercenaries will pan out in the remake, the survival horror game’s launch trailer shows the mode is coming soon.
Resident Evil 4 Remake Mercenaries release date
Resident Evil 4 Remake Mercenaries release date is April 7th. As seen at the end of the official Resident Evil 4 Remake launch trailer, The Mercenaries returns in Resident Evil 4 Remake as free post-launch DLC.
So while it’s not available when you complete the game within hours of release, you only have to wait two weeks. The content will be free for owners of the base game, as Resident Evil 4 Remake promotional producer Edvin Edso confirmed in a PlayStation blog post.
Resident Evil 4 Remake Mercenaries Mode Details
All we’ve seen of the latest DLC for The Mercenaries so far is the title game mode set against a Spanish “Pueblo” backdrop where you first encounter the Won. Presumably, just like with the original Resident Evil 4 Mercenaries mode, you’ll have multiple maps to choose from, including the town itself. We can also make assumptions at this point about playable characters, but Leon, Ada, Krauser, and Wesker all appear in the original, so we expect them to return in the remake.
What we do know is that the reward for completing The Mercenaries will be different. In the original, earning 60,000 points with each of the four characters earned you the Hand Cannon, one of Resident Evil 4’s best late-game weapons. However, while the Hand Cannon is still one of unlockables from Resident Evil 4 in the remake, it is now the reward for completing the game in pro mode without using any additional weapons. Once we know more about the rewards to get from The Mercenaries and how faithful the mode is to the original, we’ll let you know.
That’s all you need to know about the Resident Evil 4 Mercenaries mode release date, so you have plenty of time to get the most out of the base game before it arrives.
