Resident Evil 4 Remake was a ten at launch, but with the addition of The Mercenaries? Well, it’s better than ever. This free DLC release puts your skills to the test. Sure, you can solve puzzles and beat down Ganados, but how about 150 enemies? Okay, so maybe you can take them all down, but can you do it quickly, and chain those kills together for a combo bonus?

The Mercenaries forces players to use all the tools at their disposal to overcome the odds and take down a huge number of foes. You are fighting against a time limit, but smart play will reward you with extra time, and any time remaining after you finish you 150th foe will be rewarded to you as extra points.

Make sure to read our full Resident Evil 4 remake walkthrough for everything you need to find treasures and complete requests like Blue Medallions and Clockwork Castellans.
