During their harrowing escape from a small European village under the thrall of Las Plagas, Leon and his bodyguard Ashley Graham must navigate multiple environments controlled by the Los Iluminados cult. In a vast castle, ruined mines and more, they encounter even more infected villagers, deranged and insidious enemies, empowered by the Las Plagas parasite. Leon and Ashley must solve puzzles, hidden mechanisms and puzzles while battling these enemies. Their path to safety also crosses paths with special forces agent Major Jack Krauser.
Special agents looking to take on even more challenges in Resident Evil 4 will see the return of the prolific “The Mercenaries” challenge mode as free post-launch DLC.
