The Resident Evil 4 remake has received a mysterious new update, which could mean that further changes and content could soon be coming to Capcom’s hit title.
The Resident Evil 4 remake has received a mysterious new update on Steam. It could suggest that Capcom is making changes to the game ahead of a potential announcement. Although Capcom has not revealed plans for DLC after the release of the Mercenaries mode, RE4 still lacks the Separate Ways scenario. Many fans enjoyed this in the original Nintendo GameCube title back in the day.
A remake of Resident Evil 4 was rumoured for several years before the June 2022 reveal. The remake was released almost a year later, in March 2023. It became one of the fastest-selling games in the entire Resident Evil franchise.
Resident Evil 4 makes several gameplay improvements, introduces new features, and changes some aspects of the original game’s story and structure.
According to SteamDB, the Steam version of the RE4 remake received a mysterious update yesterday. This suggests that Capcom has changed the game’s app and package. The changelog indicates that several game files were compiled and added this week before the update was released. In addition, the Steam version change number was updated to reflect changes to files and resources in Valve’s database. This particular update does not outright confirm that a new DLC is coming. But it could fuel speculation ahead of Capcom’s Tokyo Game Show 2023 launch later this month.
Resident Evil 4 received several Steam updates before the Mercenaries mode’s release. These are available to all players for free. After the release of the free DLC, Capcom introduced a later RE4 update with hidden achievements and trophies. This sparked further fan speculation about the new DLC in the form of Separate Ways.
The exclusion of Ada’s campaign is one of the most prominent criticisms of the remake from fans of the original Resident Evil 4.
Resident Evil 4: VR Mode is currently in development for PlayStation VR2. This new DLC will be free for PlayStation VR2 owners who also own the PlayStation 5 remake. The available Resident Evil Village VR Mode should serve as helpful preparation for hardcore fans. Capcom has not yet shared any information about Resident Evil releases after the VR Mode’s release. However, the upcoming Tokyo Game Show 2023 presentation seems like the perfect opportunity for Capcom to make some notable announcements.
