Resident Evil 4 Story DLC Separate Ways Swings into Action Today
Separate Ways, the highly anticipated story DLC for critically acclaimed Resident Evil™ 4, is now available for PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. Separate Ways reveals Ada Wong’s side of the story, following the mysterious agent on a secret mission that intertwines with Leon S. Kennedy’s search for the president’s missing daughter. Ada’s adventure takes the survival horror action of Resident Evil 4 to thrilling heights with new gameplay mechanics that deliver an even more exciting and fast-paced experience.
In addition to the arrival of the Separate Ways DLC, new content for The Mercenaries launches today. This free update for the popular extra game mode is available now for all owners of Resident Evil 4 and welcomes Ada Wong and her notorious employer Albert Wesker to the roster of playable characters.
Separate Ways reimagines and builds upon the bonus content from the original game to deliver an expanded new adventure. The story sees the enigmatic Ada Wong infiltrating the European village controlled by Los Iluminados under orders from Albert Wesker to seize the group’s darkest secret: a powerful substance known as “the Amber.” This dangerous assignment leads to an unexpected reunion with Leon S. Kennedy, presenting another perspective on the game’s narrative that answers lingering questions from the main campaign. Ada’s covert journey runs in parallel with Leon’s rescue operation and explores the shadowy events that unfold behind the scenes, revealing the full scope of the story.
The exhilarating gameplay of Resident Evil 4 returns in Separate Ways, empowering players to overcome the horrors that await with precise firearms, intense knife combat, stealth attacks, finishing moves, and more. Separate Ways also introduces a new feature that takes the game’s fast-paced action to a whole new level. Ada can now wield her signature Grappling Gun battle to dismantle enemy defenses and launch into melee takedowns from a distance. She can also employ this versatile tool to traverse vast distances and surmount obstacles that would otherwise be impassable.
Resident Evil 4 is also currently on sale for a limited time, making it a great time for newcomers to experience state-of-the-art survival horror.
