This launch trailer also features some exciting news for fans of the original game. That's because at the end of it, the trailer cuts to a screen revealing that The Mercenaries, a mode from the original 2005 release, will be released as free DLC next month. 

More specifically, The Mercenaries will hit Resident Evil 4 on April 7. If it's like the original game's mode, you'll need to complete the story of Resident Evil 4 remake before unlocking The Mercenaries.
