The Mercenaries DLC will appear in Resident Evil 4 Remake for free starting on April 7, 2023. This mode also existed in the original version of the game. It is a lot more action-packed than the main campaign, and it focuses on killing enemies as fast as possible to get a high score. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]
Since its original incarnation in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, Resident Evil games have featured a The Mercenaries minigame or something similar. In Resident Evil 4, the version of The Mercenaries allowed you to play as HUNK and the Giant Chainsaw Man. It also featured the unlockable Handcannon weapon. Until Capcom reveals more information on this iteration of The Mercenaries though, it’s unclear just what characters and weapons will be in it.
Resident Evil 4 Remake is a revamped version of original 2005 game. Both the characters and gameplay are re-imaginations of the original. For example, there is a higher emphasis on parrying with your knife in the remake. The story still revolves around secret agent Leon S. Kennedy and his mission to rescue the president’s daughter Ashley, though. You can read our review for it here.
