Resident Evil Village – The Mercenaries Mode Confirmed

The fan-favourite mode is coming back at last.

Resident Evil Village

Resident Evil introduced a little mode called The Mercenaries with Resident Evil 3: Nemesis back in 1999, and surely, Capcom wouldn’t have expected that it would go on to become as popular as it did. Fans took to The Mercenaries immediately, and the mode returned with new iterations in several more sequels in the years afterward, even going on to spawn a standalone spinoff game on the 3DS.

Mercenaries has been missing for a while now, and its absence in last year’s Resident Evil 3 remake in particular stung a little, but it’s going to come back- and very soon. Capcom have confirmed that the upcoming Resident Evil Village will have a Mercenaries mode. Players will move from area to area and take on increasingly more difficult groups of enemies. Between each area, you will be able to meet up with The Duke and use the currency you’ve earned to either buy new weapons, or upgrade the ones you have.

Also new this time are Abilities, which you can acquire to give you various boosts, including increased guard strength, being able to do more damage with particular weapons, enhance your movement speed, and more. Check out the reveal trailer for Village’s Mercenaries mode below for more details.

Resident Evil Village launches on May 7 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia. A second demo is going live on May 1.
