Reviews have been great, sales have been strong, and now that it’s been weeks since its launch, Capcom has chosen to monetize the Resident Evil 4 remake even more.
Microtransactions have been added to the game, allowing players to pay extra to upgrade their weapons more quickly. This addition included his free Mercenaries mode DLC, which was recently added to the game, and his 11 new paid DLC called “Exclusive Upgrade Tickets.”
Each “ticket” can be redeemed at the merchant’s shop, allowing players to speed up the upgrade process.
Bringing one of these tickets to the merchant will give you instant access to exclusive weapon upgrades at any point in the game. It’s free (usually costs between 60,000 and 100,000 pesetas in-game).
Each ticket is $2.99, but there are several multipacks where players can purchase 3 or 5 tickets at a discounted price. VGC It turns out that if the player buys everything, they get 23 upgrade tickets for a total of $55.89.
With no indication from pre-release Capcom that microtransactions would be added to the game, it sold four million copies across all platforms in its first two weeks.
