Resident Evil 4 Remake: What to Do After Completing the Story

The Resident Evil 4 remake has a lot of difficulty. 2005’s original Resident Evil 4 was a classic, completely reinventing not only the Resident Evil series, but the entire third-person shooter genre. Even with the quality of previous remakes, it’s a question of whether this title needs improvement. Thankfully, the Resident Evil 4 remake has proven to be a faithful and fitting successor, building on nearly everything the original did. However, there is one glaring omission.

As of this writing, the Resident Evil 4 remake is missing some of the game’s most important post-game content : arcade mercenaries mode and Resident Evil 4: Separate Ways campaign starring Ada Wong. The former will be released on April 7, while the latter has yet to be confirmed. Still, what should players who finish the game do in the meantime?
