    Product Description

    Resident Evil 4 joins Leon S. Kennedy six years after his hellish experiences in the biological disaster of Raccoon City. His unmatched resolve caused him to be recruited as an agent reporting directly to the president of the United States. With the experience of multiple missions on his back, Leon is dispatched to rescue the president’s recently kidnapped daughter. Leon tracks her to a secluded European village, however after making first contact he discovers a fervor beyond reason grips the local populace. As a title that set the standard for the later Resident Evil franchise, the original Resident Evil 4 introduced the Third-Person-Camera to the long-running series, which has shipped over 127 million units worldwide since the first title debuted in 1996. Now, this reimagined tale of survival in the face of overwhelming terror returns to deliver a visually stunning modern gaming experience that is true to the promise of the original release. Many team members from the production of 2019’s top-selling and critically acclaimed Resident Evil 2 also make their return to delve deeper into the essence of Resident Evil 4. Fans and newcomers alike can revel in both the new and familiar, as RE Engine heightens the design and creative direction of the original game.

    Product Description

    Separate Ways – the missing link in the main story – is a thrilling survival-horror adventure starring Ada Wong. See the other side of the story from her eyes as her mission, and fate, intertwines with Leon Kennedy's a second time. Note: Requires Resident Evil 4 (2023). Please update the game to the latest patch before playing. The mission called for upmost secrecy. Failure was not an option. Before any US agent had even set foot in that cursed village, she was there. Her mission? The retrieval of the cult's darkest secret: the Amber.
