Heads up, RE fans! The long-awaited Separate Ways DLC for Resident Evil 4 is now live on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. If you’ve been itching to see Resident Evil 4 from a different angle, get ready. This DLC reveals Ada Wong’s mission, which snakes its way around Leon S. Kennedy’s quest to find the president’s missing daughter.
Ada Wong Takes Center Stage
Separate Ways isn’t just a side story; it’s a deep dive into Ada Wong’s covert ops. Ada’s mission sends her sneaking around a European village under the control of Los Iluminados. Her end game? Nabbing something known as “the Amber” on orders from none other than Albert Wesker. Along the way, Ada has a run-in with Leon, adding new layers to the main campaign’s story.
New Gameplay Mechanics to Savor
Loved the original gameplay? Hold on to your controllers. Separate Ways pumps adrenaline into the classic survival horror mechanics of Resident Evil 4. You can expect the same tight gunplay, but now with new layers like stealth attacks, and finishing moves. Oh, and let’s not forget Ada’s Grappling Gun—a nifty piece of gear letting you launch melee attacks from a distance and traverse otherwise impassable obstacles.
Bonus Content Alert: The Mercenaries Gets an Update
But that’s not all, folks. Alongside Separate Ways, The Mercenaries is getting a free update. If you already own Resident Evil 4, you can dive into this extra game mode with two new additions to the character roster—Ada Wong and Albert Wesker.
