The long-awaited Resident Evil 4 Remake arrived on March 24, but it sounds like Capcom is wasting no time in bringing fresh DLC to the hit game.

Resident Evil 4 Remake DLC should come as no surprise to fans of the series, as the original Resident Evil 4 received the same treatment. Here’s a closer look at the upcoming DLC — and it'll be out much sooner than you think.

The first 'Resident Evil 4' Remake DLC will be free, with a second coming later this year.

The first Resident Evil 4 Remake DLC was announced in the launch trailer, which revealed The Mercenaries DLC. Better yet, the DLC expansion is free for all players.

That means anyone who currently owns a copy of the remake (or plans to buy it in the future) will be able to download The Mercenaries free of charge.

The Separate Ways DLC, which was also released for the original Resident Evil 4, is now confirmed to release for the game on Sept. 21. The Separate Ways gives players control of Ada Wong – a popular character that has frequent run-ins with Leon.

Those who are already familiar with the original Separate Ways DLC will know it follows Ada's story, running parallel to Leon's own throughout the game. On multiple occasions, she makes moves that save Leon's life by a hair.

Once again, players get to watch the horrors that unfold around Leon from a different perspective, playing as the fan-favorite character through the separate storyline.

There aren't many more details readily available about the DLC at this time, though it's expected to be very similar to its predecessor in content.

Ada will also be joining 'The Mercenaries' following 'The Separate Way' release.

In addition to Ada's storyline being brought to the current generation consoles, Ada will also be coming to the previously released free DLC, The Mercenaries. Fans have been asking to be able to play as Ada in the minigame, though she won't be the only one added in this update.

Albert Wesker, who stars alongside Ada in the original storyline in The Separate Way, will also be joining the minigame. Both characters will be added for free on Sept. 21.

The Mercenaries plays out at a much faster pace than the main story, as it tasks you with slaying as many enemies as possible before a timer expires. It’s more akin to an arcade shooter than it is to a horror-survival game, featuring fewer jump scares and more nail-biting shootouts.

There’s even a combo system that encourages you to move fast and avoid taking damage, along with powerups that extend your timer or give you additional ways to earn points.

Alongside this exciting announcement for Resident Evil fans, the developers also confirmed that the VR expansion for Resident Evil 4 Remake is coming soon — and yes, it'll support PSVR 2.

Resident Evil 4 Remake is now available on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox.
