Resident Evil 4 VR received a surprise update today after the Meta Gaming Showcase, as it was announced during the event itself. The free update adds the fan-favorite The Mercenaries mode along with a few new additions.

The Mercenaries was first introduced in the original Resident Evil 4 and allowed players to choose from a variety of different characters from the game to fight against waves of enemies. The object is to get the highest score and survive in the time allotted, though there are pickups around the map that will extend the time.
