This yr’s Resident Evil 4 remake is an gratifying survival horror recreation for followers and newcomers alike, and can probably be remembered as top-of-the-line entries within the long-running franchise. But when we’re choosing nits, it did suck that Capcom omitted the unique recreation’s cool laser room part. So, it’s good to see that’s returning within the upcoming Separate Methods DLC.
Launched again in March, Capcom’s big-budget Resident Evil 4 remake is an excellent online game. I loved the best way Capcom modified some issues—melee fight, for instance—whereas staying trustworthy to the unique 2005 third-person horror traditional. Nevertheless, whereas most of Resident Evil 4 is recreated within the beautiful remake, some moments didn’t make the lower. A few of these omissions had been actually disappointing, so it’s nice to see the not too long ago introduced Separate Methods DLC is bringing again among the hottest and sorely missed sections from the OG RE4.
The original Separate Ways was a smaller, bonus marketing campaign starring Ada Wong as she ran concerning the occasions of Resident Evil 4 on her personal mission. This mode was included in all variations of the sport launched after the preliminary GameCube version, and was unlocked by finishing the principle story.
As DLC this time round, the brand new Separate Methods seems to be principally the identical journey—as soon as once more starring Ada Wong as she does cool spy shit—however on this model, she’s contaminated with the Las Plagas parasite, an attention-grabbing change from the unique bonus marketing campaign.
What’s new within the DLC and when does it launch?
It’s also nice to see the return of the fan-favorite laser room setpiece, a late-game moment that noticed Leon dodging lasers in a high-tech hallway. Additionally noticed within the new DLC trailer is an space that appears lots like the cable cars section that can also be lacking in Resident Evil 4 remake. There’s even a tease of U-3, a monster that skipped the remake however seems to be exhibiting as much as get killed in Separate Methods. So yeah, as normal, Ada is right here to do what Leon and so many others can’t, and to do it in fashion.
Separate Methods launches on September 21 and can price $10. You’ll have to personal Resident Evil 4 remake. The DLC shall be obtainable on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, and Xbox Collection X/S. (And similar to the principle recreation, not on Xbox One.)
Capcom additionally plans to drop a free replace for the RE4 remake that can add Ada Wong and Albert Wesker to the sport’s Mercenaries mode, so there’ll be two methods to play because the enigmatic murderer.
