In just a few days, Resident Evil 4 fans will be able to see what Ada Wong was up to in the game with the “Separate Ways” DLC. To whet appetites, Capcom has released the RE4 Separate Ways launch trailer today hinting at what players can expect from this new $9.99 add-on.
The DLC trailer ends by showing us Ada and Wesker will be added to the Mercenaries game mode as a free update.
Here’s a synopsis of the DLC straight from Capcom:
In Separate Ways, Ada Wong travels to a lonely and rural part of Europe to infiltrate a village controlled by the religious group known as Los Iluminados. Under orders from Albert Wesker, Ada is assigned to obtain the cult’s darkest secret: a mysterious material known as “the Amber.” Her operation intertwines with Leon S. Kennedy’s search for the president’s missing daughter, providing an alternate perspective on the main story that uncovers events that unfold behind the scenes.
Alongside the highly acclaimed gunplay, combat, and knife mechanics of Resident Evil 4, Separate Ways introduces an additional feature to the experience that takes the fast-paced action to exciting new heights. For this exhilarating mission, Ada is armed with a Grappling Gun that can be used to swing across chasms, make rapid ascents, and plunge into the depths below. She can also wield the device in combat to take on enemies in close quarters and launch into melee takedowns from a distance.
Once the update is out, we’ll be sure to let our readers know.
