The classic Mercenaries mode is making a comeback in Resident Evil Village after it was removed from Resident Evil 7 and the Resident Evil 3 Remake. The time-based game mode, which was last seen in Resident Evil 6(2012), has always been a hit amongst fans, and its return has turned a few heads. However, the game mode won’t be available from the get-go, and players have to unlock it by achieving a certain milestone.

How to Play Mercenaries mode in Resident Evil Village
As mentioned before, the Mercenaries mode is a time-based challenge. You will be dropped on the selected stage, where you have to defeat a set number of foes in a fixed time limit. Reaching the goal within the given time limit will allow players to progress into the next stage. After each stage, players will be able to upgrade their weapons or abilities depending upon the score of the prior round. The idea is to clear each stage quickly as there are rewards for the same.
While taking on the Mercenaries mode stages, you’ll come across a blue orb and a yellow orb. Taking the yellow orb will increase the time limit while taking the blue orb will grant you special combat abilities. Remember to take the orbs whenever possible, as it will help immensely in clearing the stage quickly.
