While DlC for the Resident Evil Franchise is not something new, game-changing DLC is quite uncharted territory for them. Resident Evil 4 Remake release with the normal cosmetic and weapon-based DLC for fans to pick up, but also something else.
A Treasure Map expansion was listed among the costumes and weapons for roughly the price of a costume set. Let’s go over what this treasure map expansion is and if it is worth picking up for the Resident Evil 4 Remake
Treasure Map Expansion For The Resident Evil 4 Remake
Treasures in the Resident Evil 4 Remake are the main way to make money in the game. However, they are supposed to be a rare resource that is hard to find without the purchase of a map from the merchant. Thus creating this idea of spending a little to make a lot back.
However, the Treasure Map expansion does something quite different from the normal treasure maps in the game. The treasures shown by this treasure map expansion are exclusive to the expansion. So if you don’t have the DLC the treasure won’t spawn into the game.
This really changes a bit of the game since you can essentially buy extra money to spend at the merchant. Allowing you to get things like the TMP much earlier than you normally would.
While not all of the treasures shown by this map are exclusive to the DLC it seems to defeat the purpose of buying the treasure maps that the merchant will sell you throughout the game.
Even if you don’t want to use this DLC for the challenge of the game, it will be given to you if you bought the Extra DLC pack. There does not seem to be a way to turn off the extra treasures, so you will just have to ignore them if you don’t want them.
But if you are struggling to find a bit of cash to be able to purchase your favorite shotgun in the game, this DLC might be worth checking out.
