The highly anticipated DLC for Resident Evil™ Village is here at long last! The Winters’ Expansion and the Resident Evil™ Village Gold Edition bundle are both now available worldwide for PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
The new expansion introduces new ways to enjoy the hit game, including “Third Person Mode,” new playable characters for “The Mercenaries Additional Orders” such as the statuesque Lady Dimitrescu, and the final chapter of the Winters family saga, “Shadows of Rose.”
Resident Evil™ Re:Verse, a free online multiplayer experience available for all Resident Evil Village and Resident Evil Village Gold Edition owners, also deploys today with cross-play support.
The Winters’ Expansion provides more points of view for Resident Evil Village players, beginning with the much requested “Third Person Mode.” This new option enables players to experience the acclaimed main campaign, which was originally presented from a first-person perspective, from a whole new angle. See protagonist Ethan Winters in action with never-before-seen animations, as he struggles to survive the terrors that await him on his journey to rescue his kidnapped daughter, Rose.
Set 16 years after the events of the main story, “Shadows of Rose” continues the Winters family saga. Now grown-up, Rose Winters delves into a realm of consciousness in search of a cure for her unwanted powers. Rose must face her fears in this warped and twisted world of nightmares, wielding her strange abilities to elude and overcome the monsters and other threats that seek to pull her into the darkness.
“The Mercenaries Additional Orders” also introduces new playable characters. Ethan Winters is joined by an ensemble cast in this action-packed bonus mode that now features legendary BSAA agent Chris Redfield, Lord Karl Heisenberg, and Countess Alcina Dimitrescu. Charge into the fray and unleash Chris’ boulder-boxing fists, Heisenberg’s magnetic gifts, and Lady D’s ability to conjure throwable furniture. Each character has their own array of attributes and abilities to help them carve their way through enemies in this enhanced mode that also includes new stages and fresh balance adjustments.
Set a few years after the events of Resident Evil 7 biohazard, Resident Evil Village resumes the Winters family saga with a new nightmare where Ethan Winters is hunted by relentless new foes in an isolated village. Resident Evil Village continues Ethan’s adventure in the first-person view with photorealistic visuals that take survival horror to the next level with the power of Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine. Resident Evil Village Gold Edition is a bundle of the base game and the upcoming Winters’ Expansion, which includes “Third Person Mode,” “The Mercenaries Additional Orders,” and “Shadows of Rose,” a new story following Ethan’s daughter Rosemary set 16 years after the main campaign. Resident Evil Village Gold Editionalso includes the “Trauma Pack” digital add-on content. All versions of Resident Evil Village provide free access to the online multiplayer action game Resident Evil Re:Verse.
