Now is the Winters of our downloadable content, as Capcom has unveiled the ‘Winters' Expansion’ for Resident Evil Village, a triple pack of DLC containing a story-driven ‘Shadows of Rose’ chapter, The Mercenaries Additional Orders add-on, and a third-person mode.

In the Shadows of Rose story expansion, which is set from an entirely third-person viewpoint, you'll play as Rosemary Winters, daughter of RE VII and RE Village protagonist Ethan. The story picks up 16 years on from the events of Village, and sees Rose looking to free herself from her curse, and get rid of her terrifying powers.

The Mercenaries Additional Orders, meanwhile, includes new stages and Chris Redfield, Karl Heisenberg (with hammer and magnetic powers), and Lady Alcina Dimitrescu who towers above enemies at nine-feet tall. The expansion pack also includes a third-person mode, enabling you to play the main game as Ethan, from a third-person perspective.

The Winters' Expansion will be coming to Resident Evil Village on 28th October, alongside the launch of multiplayer title Resident Evil RE:VERSE. The Winters Expansion will also be bundled with the base game in the Resident Evil Village Gold Edition. You can check it all out in the new trailer below.

  • Amazing
  • Rose's story sounds intriguing. The boss characters' Mercs mode should be a bit of fun and who knows, maybe I'll do a run in 3PS. After all of that, I'll give RE:VERE a fair chance but doubt I'll take to it.
  • Wonder if this will be a paid DLC or a Free Upgrade.
  • @3, I would strongly assume it's paid. If they're promoting the Gold edition of the game, this is likely all of the paid DLC content coming, with maybe some free updates later and PSVR 2 mode in 2023. Maybe they do a smaller dlc for free that stars Chris? The way this trailer was worded seems like it's tying up the ending of the game and maybe setting up Rose as a future protagonist.
