Just in time for Halloween comes the horror: Capcom announces today's release of the long-awaited Resident Evil Village DLC and Resident Evil Village Gold Edition. Both the Winters expansion and the Resident Evil Village Gold Edition, which includes the base game as well as the new expansion, are now available worldwide for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
The DLC offers new ways to enjoy the award-winning eighth adventure of the acclaimed survival horror franchise, including third-person mode, new playable characters for The Mercenaries: Extra Missions like Lady Dimitrescu, and the final chapter of the Winters family saga, "Shadows of Rose". Resident Evil Re:Verse, a free online multiplayer experience available to all Resident Evil Village and Resident Evil Village Gold Edition owners, is also releasing today with cross-play support.
New perspectives thanks to third-person mode
The Winters expansion offers Resident Evil Village fans a whole new perspective, starting with the long-awaited "third-person" mode. This new option allows you to experience the critically acclaimed main campaign, originally presented in first-person, from a whole new angle. Fans can see protagonist Ethan Winters in action with never-before-seen animation as he struggles to survive the horrors that await him on his journey to rescue his kidnapped daughter, Rose.
Sixteen years after the events of the main story, Shadows of Rose continues the saga of the Winters family. The now-adolescent Rose Winters delves into a realm of consciousness to find a cure for her unwanted powers. In this warped and twisted world of nightmares, Rose must face her fears and use her strange abilities to escape and defeat the monsters and other threats that try to draw her into the darkness.
The Mercenaries: Additional Missions will also introduce new playable characters. Ethan Winters is joined by an ensemble cast that now includes legendary BSAA agent Chris Redfield, Lord Karl Heisenberg and Countess Alcina Dimitrescu in this action-packed bonus mode. Players can join the fray and unleash Chris' boulder box fists, Heisenberg's magnetic gifts, and Lady D's ability to summon throwable furniture. Each character has their own attributes and abilities that they use to carve their way through enemies in this improved mode, which also includes new stages and new balance adjustments.
Resident Evil Re:Verse is also out today for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Steam with cross-play. Free for Resident Evil Village and Resident Evil Village Gold Edition owners, this online multiplayer game features a cast of popular Resident Evil heroes going head-to-head in four to six player matches. When knocked out, characters mutate into bio-weapons with powerful attacks, perfect for taking revenge on their opponents. Additional survivors, creatures, stages, costumes, and challenge missions are planned for post-launch updates. A Capcom ID is required to play and can be created here.
The world of Resident Evil Village can now be enjoyed on even more platforms as both the Mac and Cloud versions for Nintendo Switch are also releasing today. Supported by Apple silicon-compatible computers, the Mac version of Resident Evil Village offers smooth and beautiful graphics that rival the quality of high-end gaming PCs and consoles.
