Resident Evil Village DLC Winters' Expansion, Gold Edition Announced
Resident Evil Village will finally be receiving its promised DLC — and sooner rather than later. Capcom announced during its recent showcase as part of Summer Games Fest 2022 that Winters' Expansion would release on October 28, 2022, for all platforms. The developer confirmed that the expansion would be available by itself and as part of a bundle, Resident Evil Village Gold Edition.
Winters' Expansion includes a brand-new story arc set 16 years after the events of Resident Evil Village. Called Shadows of Rose, it follows Ethan's daughter, Rose Winters, as she seeks out the secrets behind her powers — and perhaps a way to get rid of them. It sees the return of Castle Dimitrescu and a few familiar characters.
Alongside the new story bits, Winters' Expansion includes a third-person mode for Resident Evil Village, which allows you to play the entire game from the classic Resident Evil perspective (Shadows of Rose is entirely in third-person mode).
Finally, the DLC brings new areas and characters to Mercenaries. Called The Mercenaries: Additional Orders, the content adds Chris Redfield, Heisenberg, and Lady Dimitrescu to the list of playable characters.
The news comes with the announcement of three Resident Evil titles receiving new-gen upgrades, new footage for the upcoming Resident Evil 4 remake, and the release date of RE: Verse.
