Resident Evil 4‘s new remake gets a boost of free content with the addition of The Mercenaries mode on April 7, but it looks like another adventure is coming to Capcom’s modernized survival horror game. A datamine of the PC version of the game indicates that the Separate roads DLC released by Capcom for earlier versions of resident evil 4 maybe coming to the remake too.
According to a tweet from Resident Evil Centralmembers of the Resident Evil Wiki Discord community dug up a reference to Separate roads – or rather, The other orderas the add-on was called in Japan — in Resident Evil 4‘s pc files.
Separate roads is an unlockable extension for Resident Evil 4 that puts players in control of Ada Wong on her journey, who regularly crosses Leon S. Kennedy and Luis Serra during the events of the main campaign. In the original incarnation of Separate roads, Ada performs actions such as ringing the church bell that ends the village’s attack on Leon, as well as preventing Leon’s death at the hands of Jack Krauser and securing the rocket launcher Leon uses in the game’s final battle. (The original Resident Evil 4 also had a separate playable chapter called “Assignment: Ada”, where Ada secures plaga samples for Albert Wesker.)

The Resident Evil 4 remake itself makes a pretty clear allusion to it Separate roads during an endgame conversation between Leon and Ada. It’s not very subtle!
Capcom has not announced any plans for downloadable content for Resident Evil 4 past April’s The Mercenaries update. Still, Capcom has released post-launch story content for the most recent main Resident Evil games. 2017 Resident Evil 7 Biohazard received several major add-ons, including the episodes Not a hero with Chris Redfield and End of Zoe featuring a playable Joe Baker. Resident Evil village received story-based DLC Shadows of rose last year, allowing players to take on the role of Rose Winters.
Separate roads could serve as a home for more than just filling in RE4‘s story and Ada Wong’s involvement in gaming events. It could also serve as a home to cut content such as the fight against U-3. While that creature doesn’t appear in the main game, the remake references U-3 in the collectibles.
Resident Evil 4 is out now for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC and Xbox Series X. If you’re desperate to play as Ada Wong, there’s a popular PC mod who trades her model for Leon’s. It’s no-frills, but it does give players the chance to watch Ada all the time RE4‘s campaign if, for some inexplicable reason, watching Leon S. Kennedy just isn’t your thing.
