Resident Evil 4 adds the popular Mercenaries Mode to the game as DLC for everyone who bought the game. Here is how to unlock.

The Resident Evil franchise had different modes alongside the main story campaign. But one of its most popular modes is the Mercenaries mode. The different game has different mode and mini-games along with the main one. But we have seen the Mercenaries mode last on Resident Evil Village.

The original Resident Evil 4 had a Mercenaries mode in the game. So it was quite disappointing for some people when the remake didn’t launch with the mode. But now, Capcom has added this mode back into the game along with a few new things. So here we will tell you how you can play Mercenaries mode in Resident Evil 4 Remake.

Unlocking Mercenaries Mode in Resident Evil 4 Remake

Resident Evil 4 Remake has made the Mercenaries Mode a lot more accessible. This time all you have to do to unlock this mode is download V1.04 of the game. This version adds the mode to the game. Previously, you needed to complete the main story at least once to unlock this mode. But Capcom has decided you don’t need to do that this time.

Choosing to jump into the mercenaries mode without completing the story has its good and bad sides. But if you are someone who is familiar with the original version of Resident Evil 4, you will not have any difficulty getting into it. But if you decide to play mercenaries before completing the main game, it will prompt you to play the main story after the first mercenaries match. This is because you will unlock other characters after the first match, which can spoil the game.
