One of the highly-acclaimed horror titles of last year will receive a huge post-launch content drop soon. Resident Evil Village will get its first story-driven expansion as well as some new game modes later in October 2022, and a new trailer from the game shows what you can expect from the Mercenaries mode upgrade.
With the upcoming Winter Expansion to Resident Evil Village, the developers will add three new playable characters to Mercenaries: Additional Orders as well as some new stages. In Mercenaries, you fight against multiple waves of mutated creatures that you have already faced in the story mode.
The new playable characters include Chris Redfield, Lady Dimitrescu, and Heisenberg. Each one of the characters will have their own set of weapons to tear apart the zombies, which significantly adds up to the variety of the mode. As the trailer below reveals, Lady Dimitrescu will be using her special magic as well as those dagger-like nails to defeat the mutated creatures.
On the other hand, Chris Redfield will deliver an experience similar to Ethan, but with better guns and highly effective melee attacks. Heisenberg will also bring his strange saw-hammer to the mode as well as some throwable disks as his long-range weapons.
Mercenaries mode will allow you to go as far as you can with the zombie waves, which will encourage you to try harder for better records.
Mercenaries Additional Orders are only a single part of the upcoming expansion to Resident Evil Village. The pack will also include Shadows of Rose as the first story-driven DLC of the game, which will let you play as Rose years after the events of the original game.
Last but not least, the post-launch DLC delivers a third-person mode to the original campaign of the game, allowing you to play as Ethan in the third-person mode if you like the old-school Resident Evil style.
Winter’s Expansion will be available on October 28. While you can purchase it separately, Capcom also introduces Resident Evil Gold Edition, which includes the base game as well as all the Winter’s Expansion content.
