Resident Evil 4 remake DLC includes at least one exclusive treasure map that leads Leon to some shiny loot in the survival horror game, loot that you apparently can’t get in the base game. That’s not entirely surprising on its own. Capcom added extra items and treasures to Resident Evil 2 remake’s DLC as well, and it’s not like Leon has any shortage of valuables to find in the zombie game without DLC. Even the recent footage from Game Informer shows him running across a pricey set of jewels while fleeing from the Ganados.

What it does show, though, is how little we know about Capcom’s plans for the remake. A Resetera user found the DLC listing on the Xbox store, and fans started speculating about what else Capcom might lock behind separate DLC. Some wondered if the Separate Ways campaign, starring Ada Wong on her journey that parallels Leon’s own, might end up being paid DLC, especially if Capcom added even more to the comparatively short campaign.

There’s also the question of Mercenaries, which Capcom hasn’t even touched on since announcing Resident Evil 4 remake. Mercenaries, like Separate Ways, originally came bundled in the main RE4 game and was popular enough that Capcom brought it back in Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil Village.

Now, we have Resident Evil Re:Verse, the free-to-play multiplayer game that’s sort of like Mercenaries, but clunkier and not as well-received. Whether Capcom reboobt RE4’s version of Mercenaries, tie it in with Village’s take on it, or just add some kind of Resident Evil 4 spin on Re:Verse remains to be seen.

Resident Evil 4 remake launches for PC, PS4 and PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on March 24, 2023.
