A leaked video suggests that Resident Evil 4 VR may be getting a free update that adds The Mercenaries Mode in 2022, first spotted by Biohazard Declassified (via UploadVR).The trailer for the highly-requested Mercenaries mode briefly appeared on the Oculus YouTube channel before getting taken down. However, users still managed to save the trailer and repost it on YouTube.
The leaked trailer says that The Mercenaries DLC is “arriving in 2022” as a “free update on Meta Quest 2.Some fans of the series were disappointed to find out that Mercenaries wasn’t included in RE4VR, which challenges you to kill hordes of enemies and rack up as many points as possible before the timer runs out. As UploadVR notes, The Mercenaries Mode has been present in all versions of RE4 except for RE4VR. Users could also find the mode in RE3: Nemesis, RE5, RE6, RE Village, and in its own spinoff RE: The Mercenaries 3D.
The rebranding has even seeped to the Oculus website, where you’ll see Meta’s name and logo stamped in the top left corner of the screen. Meta plans on phasing out Oculus branding in 2022, just for The Mercenaries’ potential release.
