In first two days of its global debut, 2023 action survival horror game Resident Evil 4 Remake by developer/publisher Capcom saw biggest series launch on Steam to date and sold over 3 million copies, leading their stock to hit all-time high.
Accompanied by a launch trailer, Capcom announced to include fan-favorite Mercenaries mode two weeks ago. Today, players can get their hands on free Mercenaries mini-game mode DLC to kill as many enemies as possible in a set time.
