Is There Multiplayer in Resident Evil 4 Remake The Mercenaries?

Resident Evil 4 Remake Mercenaries Multiplayer

Available through a free update, The Mercenaries mode returns in Resident Evil 4 remake. While the original title offered a single-player experience in terms of this extra mode, Resident Evil 5 added co-op elements upon its inclusion. While multiplayer may seem like an obvious choice for The Mercenaries in Resident Evil 4 remake given Capcom’s other multiplayer Resident Evil titles, this mode remains a single-player affair.

There is no multiplayer in The Mercenaries in Resident Evil 4 remake. Players instead need to clear waves of enemies alone to unlock different characters that are part of its available roster. These include HUNK, Leon S. Kennedy, Luis Serra, and Jack Krauser. Each character has a unique ability that can be used once players kill enough enemies to charge up their “super.” It is unclear if more characters will be added to the roster of The Mercenaries at a later date.

However, both Ada Wong and Albert Wesker were datamined, with their animations and some voice lines existing in the game. If these characters will be available, Capcom has yet to say. Until then, players can enjoy a handful of stages and characters in the meantime.

The Resident Evil 4 remake is immediately available for the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows PC.
