A bunch of different microtransactions have now been added to the Resident Evil 4 Remake, a couple of weeks after the game's main launch.
The surprise additions dropped alongside the return of Mercenaries mode - a feature that was obviously advertised a lot more than any sort of microtransaction arrival. The packs — priced at £2.49 each here in the UK, or available in bundles — allow users to pay real money to unlock a weapon's exclusive upgrade at any time, and at no in-game currency cost.
The fact that the game never felt like it was built around such a feature is of course a good thing - we never noticed any sort of struggle to grab upgrades during our hands on time with the game before the DLCs launched. Still, it does feel a little sneaky to just plonk these out after release so that any early access coverage doesn't mention their availability.
