In a recent trailer, the Resident Evil 4 remake confirmed the return of a fan-favorite mode, as well as the impending release of a special demo. The build-up to the highly anticipated remake of the critically acclaimed survival horror action game Resident Evil 4 has been filled with news about what is set to return, as well as what is new or changed.
When a player beats the original Resident Evil 4, they are given some additional options.
There’s also the New Game Plus option, which allows them to replay the game with all of their previous gear and items. Separate Ways and Assignment Ada, two side stories starring the game’s side character Ada Wong, followed her during and after the events of the main game. Finally, there was The Mercenaries mode, which served as a game mode in which players battled Ganados with various Resident Evil characters for higher scores.
A new trailer was shown for the Resident Evil 4 remake during the latest State of Play, ending with the announcement that The Mercenaries is coming back. While no footage of The Mercenaries game mode was shown, its announcement is exciting. The trailer also confirmed that a “Special Demo” is coming soon.
The new Resident Evil 4 Remake showed Leon and Luis fighting monks together in the Castle area, including a shot of Leon, duplexing a monk. It also featured Krauser, a boss from the original game, with the iconic knife fight between him and Leon now being gameplay rather than a QTE. Because QTEs will not be present in the Resident Evil 4 remake, it will be interesting to see how the knife fight will unfold without them. Along with that, there was a lot more in the trailer, such as mine cart rides, Garradors, and a better look at the main antagonist, Lord Saddler.
Resident Evil 4 will release on PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S on March 24.
