Resident Evil Village
Winter’s Expansion DLC: The Winter’s Expansion DLC has several new additions.
Rose Winter DLC: Shadow of Rose story DLC is a follow up of the events that happen after the main game. Unlike the main game, Shadow of Rose will take place entirely in third person.
The Mercenaries Additional Orders: Adds Lady Alcina Dimitrescu, Chris Redfield, and Karl Heisenberg as playable characters. Each characters have their own unique style of gameplay.
Third Person Mode: Players will be able to play the main story of Resident Evil Village entirely in third person.
Coming this October 28, 2022, the Resident Evil Village Winter’s Expansion adds several new content to the main game that was in the Resident Evil Capcom Showcase.
The Mercenaries: Additional Orders adds three new playable characters to the roster, each with their own unique playstyle. The villainous Lady Dimitrescu is significantly taller than most of the enemies and her gameplay shows her being able to pick up enemies by the neck and body slamming them to the ground. Karl Heisenberg also joins her with his big hammer and his ability to telekinetically throw metal objects at enemies. The only hero in the midst, Chris Redfield, uses more traditional weapons but also has his mean right punch that can send enemies flying.
Shadow of Rose is a story DLC that takes place after the events of the main game. This will feature Rose Winter as she enters the “consciousness of Megamycete” a place where space and time are “warped beyond recognition.” Unlike the main game, Shadow of Rose will take place entirely in third person perspective.
Third person mode will also be coming to the main game. Players will finally be able to play from an over-the-shoulder perspective. As to how this will handle the camera work that can get confusing in certain sections of the game is something we have yet to see.
Free Upgrade: The Resident Evil 2 & 3 Remakes as well as Resident Evil 7 will have free upgrades for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S today.
Those who own Resident Evil 7 and the Resident Evil 2 & 3 Remakes can upgrade their games for free to next generation consoles starting June 13, 2022. This upgrade will feature 4K resolution, higher FPS, ray tracing, and 3D audio.
