How to Access Mercenaries Mode in Resident Evil 4 Remake- Resident Evil 4 was a huge success when it was released back in 2005. The game got several upgrades over the years. A Remastered version, a version with HD Textures but none of them comes even close to the remake.
The Resident 4 Remake 2023 is by far the best Resident Evil game I played yet. It improves so much upon the original and gives you the complete package that you always wanted.
The game just received the Mercenaries Mode which is supposed to be a free DLC for anyone who has purchased the game. In this guide, we will be talking a little about the mode and how you can access it in Resident Evil 4 Remake.
How to Access Mercenaries Mode in Resident Evil 4 Remake
What is the Mercenaries Mode?
This is not the first time fans get to see the Mercenary mode. It was first introduced back in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis and had stayed ever since. It is a super fun game mode where you take on Hordes of zombies in a limited time.
You will get green time boosters as you play the mode to make sure you do not run out of time before you eliminate all 150 enemies. The game mode will feature 3 arenas- the Village, the Castle, and the Island. You will also be able to play with 4 characters- Leon Kennedy, Luis Serra, Jack Krauser, and Hunk.
If you have no idea who Hunk is, he is the mysterious masked soldier from Resident Evil 2.
The main objective of the mode will be to finish off all the enemies in the given time limit. The better you score the higher grade you get. Every character will have their own unique special abilities and weapon set which will help you take down as many enemies as possible in little time.
However, the sad part is that there is no Ada Wong or Wesker in the Mercenaries mode like we had in the original game.
How to Unlock the Mercenaries Mode in Resident Evil 4 Remake?
The Mercenaries Mode is a completely free update for anyone who has purchased the game. You need to only have the latest version of the game and that is it. However, for it to unlock in the game itself you need to complete the Main Story mode.
So if you are playing the game, and you do not see the Mercenaries mode yet, probably you are still playing through the Main Story. Once you complete that the mode will automatically appear in the Main Menu.
If it is not added and if you are on Steam you need to:
- Go to Library
- Then select Resident Evil 4 Remake
- Now go to Properties and select DLC.
- Check if Mercenaries mode is included or not. It should be as it is free. However, there could be a possibility that the mod might not be checked.
- If so, click on the box before the Mercenaries mode so that it shows a tick mark.
- Restart Steam and you should be good to go.
However, if you have not completed the Main Story, you would not be able to see this mode under DLCs as well, as it won’t be added yet.
That is all you need to know about unlocking the Resident Evil 4 Mercenaries mode. I hope the guide was helpful. Please let us know in the comments below. Also, follow FPS Index for more guides on Resident Evil 4 and other games.
