Resident Evil 4 Remake Adds New Treasure Collectibles, But Locks Them Behind DLC
Capcom’s upcoming Resident Evil 4 Remake has added brand new treasure collectibles, though they are locked behind DLC.
The Xbox Store now features a Treasure Map DLC for the Resident Evil 4 Remake, which makes brand new treasure collectibles available in the game. With this map expansion, additional treasures will be placed throughout the game world. Some of these treasures can only be obtained by purchasing the Treasure Map expansion.
Players can confirm the location of additional treasures via their map in the Main Story. The Treasure Map expansion can either be bought separately or bundled with the game via the Deluxe Edition.
Previously, it was reported that Albert Wesker, a major villain in the Resident Evil series who had made a brief appearance in the original Resident Evil 4, will be making a return in the remake based on voice acting credits. Wesker is listed under “Top Cast” on IMDB, implying that he may have a more prominent role in the remake.
In the original Resident Evil 4, Wesker briefly appeared during Separate Ways, a minigame that is unlocked by completing the main story. Players assume control of Ada Wong in this bonus minigame. The only gameplay variations from Leon is Ada’s slightly faster movement speed, use of different melee attacks, and ability to use the hookshot to access areas that Leon couldn’t. Players begin the game with five health bars and a default sized attache case.
The minigame is spread across five chapters, with two chapters set in the village, one in the castle, and two on the island). It is considerably lengthier and more complex than Assignment: Ada. However, in this mode, the Merchant’s availability for weapon upgrades is disabled.
Finishing the minigame and saving puts the save file is in the “New Round” state, allowing the player to start over with all of their money and equipment. By completing Assignment: Ada, the Chicago Typewriter becomes available for use in this mode.
