Fans of the Resident Evil franchise might be ready for a new helping of the franchise. The video game series’ most recent installment is Resident Evil 4. This is a remake of the classic and beloved installment of the series. However, upon its release, fans found that this game didn’t include a side campaign that had been released prior called Separate Ways. It was soon speculated that Capcom would deliver this campaign in the form of DLC later. Fortunately, that proved the case as we got word of the Separate Ways DLC during this month’s PlayStation State of Play. Best of all, the announcement confirmed that the DLC would also land in the marketplace this month.
That’s right, there’s no long waiting to get our hands on Separate Ways. This DLC is inbound, and for some players, you can get it as early as today. Today, a new post from the Resident Evil X account confirmed the launch times of the Separate Ways DLC. Depending on your location, you can find out exactly when the game expansion is arriving in your marketplace. While you can view the post above, we’ll list down the official times as stated.
Resident Evil 4: Separate Ways Launch Times
- PlayStation: Sept 21, 00:00 BST & CEST
- Xbox: Sept 21, 5AM BST / 6AM CEST
- Steam: Sept 21, 5AM BST / 6AM CEST
- Sept 20, 9PM PDT on PlayStation, Xbox and Steam
Now, if you’re unfamiliar with what Separate Ways is, we can offer some insight. During Resident Evil 4’s campaign, our main protagonist, Leon, meets up with Ada Wong. Ada, much like in Resident Evil 2, has offered Leon a hand from time to time. However, Ada is not one to stick around, so what exactly she is up to during the campaign when not saving Leon is a mystery. With Separate Ways, players take the role of Ada and go through her own storyline, filling in some of the gaps from the Leon campaign.
Resident Evil 4 is now available if you haven’t already played through the base game. This title is available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC platforms. We also have a Before You Buy video coverage of the game, which you can view in the video we have embedded below. With that said, it’s a mystery right now where Capcom will be taking this franchise next. We could potentially see another remake installment from the series if they don’t bring out a new mainline continuation following the events of Resident Evil Village.
