Some new discoveries on the upcoming Resident Evil 4 Remake game has a number of fans worried how the game might turn out. Resident Evil 4 Remake Microtransactions According to details stemming from the Entertainment Software Ratings Boards (ESRB), Resident Evil 4 Remake will include some form of in-game purchases. As for what sort of microtransaction is available in the game, that is still unknown at this point in time. Resident Evil 4 Remake was reviewed by the ESRB and given the M rating for mature audiences only. This isn't a surprise given its content depicting blood, gore, violence, and strong language. The board has examined the content of the game, which is how details of the game's in-game purchases came about. There is a chance that it could be limited to just purchasing extra equipment and supplies, or it could be something specifically for a potential multiplayer portion of the game, which has yet to be confirmed. The reason why people thought here could be a multiplayer mode is because they included it in the Resident Evil 3 remake. Resident Evil 4 Remake is scheduled for release on March 24 of next year for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Source Pokdepinion: It's no surprise to see it being included in the game but as long as it's not necessary to complete the game, I have no problems with it. Imagine buying a game that is pay-to-win, and then imagine the amount of outrage engulfing the community.

Capcom’s highly anticipated game, Resident Evil 4 Remake, will receive its free DLC, The Mercenaries, on April 7th 2023, as revealed in the game’s launch trailer. While the image accompanying the announcement only depicts Leon fighting against Ganado in the village area, the DLC’s five playable characters and the number of stages remain unknown. The Mercenaries mode first appeared in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis in 1999 and has since been a staple in the franchise, but its iteration in the Resident Evil 4 remake is yet to be detailed.

There are also rumors of paid DLC coming to Resident Evil 4 Remake in the form of Separate Ways, which made its debut in the 2005 PlayStation 2 re-release. The DLC had players taking control of Ada Wong, providing a different angle to the story and offering more exposition regarding her character. Resident Evil insider and enthusiast Dusk Golem claimed on Twitter that Separate Ways would be a “more extensive” paid DLC, but Capcom is yet to confirm this.

Resident Evil 4 Remake is currently available on Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. The game has been highly anticipated by fans of the Resident Evil franchise, and the announcement of The Mercenaries DLC mode release date will surely add to the excitement.


Pokdepinion: While I personally feel that it didn’t quite nail the same experience as the original, it’s still a pretty fun game. It’s even more fun to watch other people play it so while it’s still trending, go check out your favourite streamers playing this game. I’m sure you’ll have a good laugh from time to time.
