Resident Evil 4's Mercenaries mode is scheduled to go live on 7th April, but depending on where you live in the world, you may be able to jump into the arcade action right now.
Players in select teritories in Asia can now access the game mode, with Korean gamers reporting they are able to access it. This scribe can confirm that Mercenaries is also currently live in Australia, too. If you really can't wait to jump in, creating a PSN account corresponding to either of those regions should do the trick.
Notably, it looks like the mode has launched with less content than first expected. Currently, you can only play as Leon, Luis, Krauser, and Hunk, and only on the Village, Castle, and Island maps.
Mercenaries offers a high-octane alternative to Resident Evil 4's traditional campaign, with players able to take on a variety of challenges and compete to be the very best survivor possible. Will you be diving in imminently, or will you be waiting for the update to roll out worldwide? Make sure everyone knows you were "first" in the comments section below.
I never played the original, so I'm not sure what was on offer there. When you say it's launching with less content than expected, what exactly more did it normally have? Any word of patch/fix notes arriving with it?
@KundaliniRising333 - In the original you had 5 characters and four stages, now it seems to be 4 characters and 3 stages. That said, I’ve been seeing rumours that two extra characters and one extra stage will be added later, so it might end up with more content overall, but yeah, atm it seems we have slightly less content than expected.
@FullMetalWesker ahhh I gotcha. Thanks. Yah hopefully it will eventually get the extra map, whatever that was.
Its live in the UK as well, haven't played it yet though.
Haven't beat the main game yet, I think I'm on chapter 13 so I'm close.
4 characters and 3 maps isnt that surprising. Expecting them to add Ada when we get Seperate ways, and most likely also a map from that DLC.
For anybody trophy hunting on this, let's say for hard-core with S+ do this merc mode, get an S rank on all.3 maps you unlock the handcannon easy game !!
Spoiler: it's really fun. I love the ultra meter when playing as Hunk. Infinite ammo.
It's hard to complain about free content to a great game such as RE 4 Remake. I prefer Mercenaries in co-op though (RE 5, 6, Revelations 1 & 2). Playing solo gets boring pretty fast. But I'll give it a shot. I suppose I still complained 😕
Well atleast the microtransactions are ready day one. 😂
