There are plenty of game modes in the Resident Evil 4 Remake that are sure to test your skills and make you question if you are good at the game. Those who don’t want a challenge might play on assisted mode where they have aim assist and health recovery. Those who want a real challenge will want to play on Professional mode where the difficulty gets cranked up and Leon must struggle to survive. But what exactly is Professional mode in Resident Evil 4 Remake and how do you unlock it?

How to unlock Professional Mode in Resident Evil 4 Remake

It is actually pretty simple to unlock Professional mode. Like in previous Resident Evil games, you simply need to beat the game to gain access to this difficulty setting. Luckily, there is no requirement as to what difficulty you need to beat the game on first to unlock it. Beating the Resident Evil 4 Remake on any difficulty will allow you to access Professional mode from the main menu.

Professional Mode, simply put, is one of the game’s many difficulty settings. There are four settings in total; assisted, standard, hardcore, and professional. Professional mode is the hardest difficulty in the game and takes true skill to complete. The following changes take effect in Professional mode:

  • Autosaves are turned off
  • Parrying is limited to perfect parries
  • All weapon upgrades are unlocked at the start of the game

No autosaves means that you will need to save manually each time you reach a typewriter. If you die, you will revert back to where you last saved. Parrying is also very limited in this mode, requiring you to hit the button at the right moment to deflect an attack. Like in hardcore mode, enemies are much stronger and can easily kill you if you aren’t paying attention. Luckily, you have weapon upgrades available right away which is great if you are using a weapon like the Punisher.
