In contrast to the norm in the world of video games, the most recent couple of Resident Evil games haven’t provided much in the way of downloadable content (DLC), but that will change with the release of Resident Evil Village. As was just disclosed during the Capcom Showcase, the “Winter’s Expansion” is going to be the name of the substantial update that will be arriving to Resident Evil Village in the month of October.
This downloadable content pack will include a story expansion called “Shadows of Rose,” which will follow Rose Winters, the daughter of Ethan and Mia Winters, as she “enters the consciousness” of the Megamycete mold from the base game.
New material for Mercenaries has also been added as part of this update. Players now have the option to assume the role of Lady Dimitrescu, and the main game can be played in third-person perspective. Oh, and for those of you who are still interested, the RE:Verse launch will eventually take place simultaneously with the update. You may view a trailer for all of the upcoming treats by clicking on the link below.
Although a price tag has not yet been stated for the Winter’s Expansion, Capcom will be providing a “Resident Evil Village Gold Edition” that will include all of the game’s downloadable content (DLC). Here is some additional information regarding what you might anticipate from the upgrade.
Third-Person Mode – The first piece of content is the Third-Person Mode. This will allow you to play the main story mode in a third-person perspective. This new viewpoint will let you see Ethan as he faces off against his enemies. Those of you who are new as well as those of you who have yet to experience Resident Evil Village can experience the story in this fresh perspective.
The Mercenaries Additional Orders – Next is The Mercenaries Additional Orders. The arcade-like action shooting experience returns with additional stages and new playable characters such as a fully prepared Chris Redfield, Karl Heisenberg, who wields a giant hammer and possesses the ability to control magnetic forces, and Alcina Dimitrescu who is over nine-feet tall. Each one of them are unique on their own, so we are sure that you will enjoy it!
Shadows of Rose – And Finally, Shadows of Rose. Players saw Rose as a baby in the main story of Resident Evil Village. This DLC will show her story of survival 16 years after the original campaign. We have some screenshots as well as an overview of Shadows of Rose, and we hope you enjoy imagining what this new story will entail. 16 years after the events of Resident Evil Village… Rosemary Winters, Ethan’s beloved daughter, has grown up and is now struggling with terrifying powers. In search of a way to break free from her curse, Rose enters the consciousness of the Megamycete. Rose’s journey takes her to a mysterious realm where memories of the past return to create a warped and twisted world of nightmares.
On the PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Stadia, you can now play Resident Evil Village. On October 28, the Winter’s Expansion will become available.
