Resident Evil Village is getting an expansion with more story and a third-person mode
The new story campaign, Shadows of Rose, stars Rose, the daughter of Village protagonist Ethan Winters. “Rosemary Winters, Ethan’s darling daughter, has grown up and is currently battling with frightening powers,” Capcom’s Tsuyoshi Kanda wrote in a post on the PlayStation blog. “In search of a way to break liberated from her revile, Rose enters the cognizance of the Megamycete. Rose’s process takes her to a baffling realm where recollections of the past re-visitation of create a warped and twisted universe of nightmares.”
Shadows of Rose takes place in third person, and with Winters’ Expansion, you’ll have the option to play the main story in third person as well. The updates to the arcade-y Mercenaries mode incorporate new stages and new playable characters — including the famous nine-foot tall Lady Dimitrescu.
Capcom didn’t simply share news about Resident Evil Village. It also announced that the cutting edge updates for Resident Evil 2, 3, and 7 will be available to download today, flaunted a short glance at the impending Resident Evil 4 remake Google tool shows, and said that the online multiplayer game Resident Evil Re:Verse will be available the same day as Winters’ Expansion, October 28th.
The Winters’ Expansion will add a third-person mode, another story campaign set after the main game, and new satisfied for the Mercenaries mode, including Lady Dimitrescu as a playable character. The multiplayer game Resident Evil Re:Verse is also launching on October 28.
Resident Evil Village released in 2021 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It has sold north of 6 million duplicates.
The Shadows of Rose story isn’t the main part of the game that is playable in third-person. The total of Resident Evil Village’s campaign will also be playable from a third-person viewpoint behind Ethan.
As for Mercenaries mode, the Winters’ Expansion adds three new playable characters, including Chris Redfield, Heisenberg, and Lady Dimitrescu, as well as new stages to “greatly enhance the mode’s versatility and play volume.”
Capcom hasn’t said anything on new Resident Evil Village achievements with the expansion, however on the off chance that we hear anything, we’ll make certain to tell you.
Speaking of third-person, The Winters Expansion will also add an optional third-person mode to the main Resident Evil Village campaign. While late Resident Evil titles have been first-person, more established Resident Evil titles adhered to third-person – meaning the forthcoming update will allow players to encounter Village from a more outdated viewpoint.
Finally, The Winters Expansion will also carry an update to Village’s Mercenaries mode, as “new stages, new characters, and different enhancements”. Capcom has already detailed three of the impending characters: Chris Redfield, Heisenberg and Lady Dimitrescu will all become playable with “special abilities” when the update launches.
The greatest of these is Shadows Of Rose, a forthcoming expansion that will take place 16 years after Resident Evil Village’s story. Shadows Of Rose will follow Rose Winters as she attempts to dispose of her supernatural powers, investigating the awareness of Village’s Megamycete to do as such.
“Introduced altogether in third-person, Rose’s special abilities will be necessary to get by, even as she tries to eradicate them,” teases Capcom.
