Added alongside Resident Evil 4 Remake‘s Mercenaries mode were several microtransaction options, including paid weapon upgrade tickets that can be used to fully upgrade a weapon. This bypasses having to use the limited tickets earned in game via sidequests or grinding out the upgrades with Pesetas. Previously, Capcom made cosmetics and treasure maps available for purchase that were available through Resident Evil 4 remake’s special editions once the game officially released. [Thanks, Wario64!]
The Resident Evil 4 Remake weapon upgrade tickets microtransactions are purchasable in packs of 1 for $2.99, 3 for $6.99, or 5 for $9.99. Each ticket allows you to fully upgrade a weapon of your choice for no in-game cost and access the weapon’s exclusive upgrade, even without the required weapon level. Two tickets are earnable in game with Spinels, a currency gained through completing side quests. The first costs 30 Spinels, and the second costs 40 Spinels.
Also available are the bonuses previously included in the Digital Deluxe Edition. These include the Treasure Map expansion, two sets of costumes for Ashely and Leon, two sets of a costume and a filter for Leon, a pair of sunglasses for Leon, and an “original version” soundtrack option. The two digital deluxe exclusive weapons, the Skull Shaker shotgun and Sentinel 9 pistol, are also available for purchase.
These additions come alongside the free Mercenaries mode, an action focused score attack mode. Capcom also plans to support the game with patches to fix progress-blocking bugs.
The Resident Evil 4 remake is immediately available on the PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, and PS5.
