The highly-anticipated side mission with everyone's favourite femme fatale returns. Find out more below:

Fans of Capcom’s oft-considered masterpiece, Resident Evil 4, will remember Separate Ways. A spin-off, included in the PlayStation 2 version, saw players take on Ada Wong’s perspective during Leon’s adventure.

Which, naturally, a lot of fans were clamouring for when the remake came out this year. Now, following the most recent State of Play, Capcom have announced that Separate Ways is coming back, as are Ada and Wesker to the Mercenaries mini-game.

From the press release:

Separate Ways explores another side of the reawakened tale, following Ada Wong on a clandestine mission that reunites the agent with Leon S. Kennedy during his search for the president’s missing daughter. Alongside the release of Separate Ways, a free update for The Mercenaries will go live the same day, introducing Ada Wong and her notorious employer Albert Wesker as playable characters for the popular bonus mode.

In Separate Ways, Ada Wong travels to a lonely and rural part of Europe to infiltrate a village controlled by the religious group known as Los Iluminados. Under orders from Albert Wesker, Ada is assigned to obtain the cult’s darkest secret: a mysterious material known as “the Amber.” Her operation intertwines with Leon S. Kennedy’s search for the president’s missing daughter, providing an alternate perspective on the main story that uncovers events that unfold behind the scenes.

Alongside the highly acclaimed gunplay, combat, and knife mechanics of Resident Evil 4, Separate Ways introduces an additional feature to the experience that takes the fast-paced action to exciting new heights. For this exhilarating mission, Ada is armed with a Grappling Gun that can be used to swing across chasms, make rapid ascents, and plunge into the depths below. She can also wield the device in combat to take on enemies in close quarters and launch into melee takedowns from a distance.”

As well as Separate Ways and Mercenaries additions, there’s a free VR mode coming “this winter” for PSVR2 owners. Talk about spoiling us, eh?

Separate Ways is releasing on 21st September, with an RRP of £9.99, whilst the Mercenaries update will be free to all. We’ll bring you more on the VR update as time goes on. Back to it, Baby Eagle.
