The latest patch for the Resident Evil 4 remake adds The Mercenaries mode, although it still lacks two of the game’s most popular playable characters. Capcom has updated the Resident Evil 4 remake with a new mode called The Mercenaries, but unfortunately, neither Ada Wong nor Albert Wesker appears in it. Despite being a fan-favorite addition to 2005 original, Resident Evil 4’s remake did not include The Mercenaries option at launch.
The Mercenaries wasn’t included in the original release of Resident Evil 4, but fans didn’t have to wait long for it to be incorporated into the remake. On April 7, Capcom published an update for the Resident Evil 4 remake that fixed a number of bugs and added a new mode called The Mercenaries, which lets you choose from four different characters.
Players of Resident Evil 4’s The Mercenaries begin the game as Leon S. Kennedy but can switch to Luis once they reach the A rank with Leon. If you obtain an A rank as Luis, you can use Krauser, and if you get an A rank as Krauser, you can utilize Hunk.
While Ada Wong and Albert Wesker could be unlocked in the 2005 Resident Evil game’s Mercenaries mode, they do not appear in the remake’s version of the mode in Resident Evil 4. Capcom’s decision to exclude Ada and Wesker from this remake of The Mercenaries is puzzling, but there is still time for them to be included.
Fans should temper their expectations for the time being despite datamining pointing toward Capcom bringing back Ada Wong and Albert Wesker as playable characters in Mercenaries. The question of whether or not Ada and Wesker will be playable in The Mercenaries mode as downloadable content (DLC) or a free update still stands.

Similarly, Assignment Ada and Separate Paths are not included in the remade version of Resident Evil 4. PlayStation 5 owners will be pleased to know that Resident Evil 4 will feature a virtual reality mode in the future, though Capcom has not yet revealed a release date for the feature. The future of the Resident Evil 4 remake is currently unknown, but fans should have plenty to do in the meanwhile thanks to the inclusion of The Mercenaries mode.
The Resident Evil 4 remake has been a huge hit, so it stands to reason that Capcom will want to keep it updated with new features in the hopes of attracting even more customers. While some changes, like the recent addition of pay-to-win DLC to Resident Evil 4, may not sit well with fans, we hope that the vast majority of these upgrades go a long way toward keeping RE fans involved. Game consoles, computers, and the Xbox One S can all play Resident Evil 4.
