Resident Evil 4 Remake Gets Free Mercenaries DLC While Two Key Characters Missing

Starting today, all Resident Evil 4 Remake owners can download the free DLC called The Mercenaries. Unfortunately, the popular Mercenaries Mode is missing two important characters. Instead, there are microtransactions.

As previously announced, beginning with today (i.e., April 7), Resident Evil 4 Remake owners can download a the free DLC called The Marcenaries. Known from many earlier installments of the series, the Mercenaries Mode enables you to extend the fun. However, the DLC is not without some shortcomings.

  • The Marcenaries is missing two important characters - Ada Wong and Albert Wesker (via IGN). In the original Mercenaries, these characters were present.
  • There are also microtransactions in the DLC. Players can purchase so-called tickets, enabling "unique weapon upgrades .

"(...) here's your ticket to the gun show! Specifically a ticket to be redeemed at the Merchant's shop.With this, you'll have access to a weapon's exclusive upgrade at any time, regardless of the weapon's level.Not only that, but once unlocked, the upgrade itself is free of charge!," reads the announcement on PlayStation store.

There are concerns that the absence of Ada Wong and Wesker in Mercenary Mode may have to do with the fact that they will appear in the future as a paid DLC.

Mercenary Mode - what does it offer?

Mercenary Mode is a regular feature in the Resident Evil series. It is based mainly on arcade competition. The player must get rid of a horde of enemies within the allotted time. Killing each opponent extends the time that can be used for further play. Below you will find a trailer, presenting The Mercenaries in action.

An introvert by nature. Since childhood, he felt a closer connection to humanism than to the sciences. Instead of exercises in maths, he preferred shutting himself up in his world and inventing new stories of his favorite anime – Dragon Ball. After years of study came a time of stagnation, which he preferred to call "searching for purpose." Looking out for destiny during the 58th screening of his beloved Die Hard, he decided – like John McCLane – to fight for a better future. He found the avenue to do this in Gamepressure. Since he's still a freshman in the newsroom, he doesn't have a target subject he wants to focus on yet. So, you can expect news about farming simulators, or the impact of Johnny Depp's trial on the future of Pirates of the Caribbean. If you ever hear that playing console games and watching movies is futile – remember this story
