Resident Evil 4: Separate Ways Quick Hands On | Being Wong feels so right

Delivering the sweet, action-packed experience of the base game, but with thigh-high boots.

Capcom really decided to bring out the big guns at this year’s Tokyo Game Show with a host of new games and exciting DLC–one of which being Resident Evil 4: Separate Ways, which dropped on September 21.

Ada Wong’s side story gets fleshed out further just like it did in 2004, showing players that Leon truly wasn’t alone throughout his Las Plagas ordeal.

We got our hands on some sweet PS5 gameplay for Separate Ways, and in while we only had roughly twenty minutes to explore, it was a great teaser for who expect for the full DLC. You play through the full, unaltered first part of the DLC, cut scenes and all–bearing witness to what transpires while Leon and Ashley traverse the village.

Separate Ways shares the exact same mechanics as the base game albeit tailor-made for Ada and her asskicking spycraft ways. We’ll try not to spoil too much of what happens, as it addresses much of the supposed plot holes of the main story. All we can say is that some fan-favorite characters make a comeback, and certain baddies that suddenly disappeared get a bit more screentime. At the end of the day, it’s the same awesome action-horror experience you get from Resident Evil 4, but from a different point of view.

As far as how it runs on the PS5, you can expect a smooth gameplay experience, and having recently acquired it myself on Steam, it runs on a steady 30fps on higher settings, with no issues. If you truly enjoyed the Resident Evil 4 remake and wish to know more about Ada Wong’s mysterious dealings behind the scenes, you should definitely check this one out.

Resident Evil 4: Separate Ways is available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox Series X and S.
