Indeed, Resident Evil 4 has had an amazing year of content so far and it only continues to grow with further updates. The launch of The Mercenaries DLC for free brought a fun post-game mode back to what was already a beloved game, Shacknews’ first 10 out of 10 review. It will be interesting and exciting to see how the game plays once its PS VR2 update launches, utilizing some of Sony’s most fun technology yet. There’s also solid reason to believe Capcom is gearing up for another major DLC reveal for Resident Evil 4 soon.

Nonetheless, Resident Evil 4 deserves all of the love it’s gotten so far. With another sales milestone in the books, it will be interesting to see what Capcom has in store for the franchise next. Stay tuned for updates and announcements as they drop, right here at Shacknews.
