Resident Evil Village Gold Edition on the way, will include plenty of new content

Since its release back in early 2021, Resident Evil Village has received a huge success. With gameplay and level design heavily inspired by Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil Village  is the first mainline Resident Evil title to release in five years. Now, after over a year, Capcom is almost ready to release new content for Resident Evil Village, just in time for Halloween.

For several fans of the Resident Evil series, one of the standout qualities of Resident Evil 7 was the plethora of DLC campaigns and other content that was subsequently released after the game’s initial launch. For the longest time, fans speculated if the RE: Village would receive the same treatment. It has since been confirmed that Resident Evil Village Gold Edition will release on October 28, 2022.

During the recent Capcom Showcase, fans got looks at several games from the developer, including a look at the content that would be included in the Gold Edition. This includes a new DLC campaign called Shadows of Rose, where plates will get to continue the story as Ethan Winters’ daughter.

Furthermore, the Mercenaries mode will now have more playable characters, such as Chris Redfield, Karl Heisenberg and fan favorite Lady Dimitrescu. Lastly, players will be able to enjoy third-person perspective, similar to the remakes of Resident Evil 2 and 3. This will potentially bring out Ethan’s personality even more and provide players an alternative form of gameplay, should they prefer the over-the-shoulder camera setup from the remakes.

Of all the stuff that was announced during the Capcom Showcase, this will definitely excite plenty of Resident Evil fans. The ending of Resident Evil Village presented a vague direction for the series going forward, with Chris Redfield assumedly training Rose Winters on how to handle her abilities, but it didn’t leave too much to the imagination in terms of what could happen next.

With any luck, Shadows of Rose will give players some idea about the future of Resident Evil. Based on what was shown in the trailer, it seems like players will be returning to the main area, and the Duke, who once served as an ally to players, apparently seems to be the main antagonist of this campaign. In any case, Capcom will probably reveal more detail about the game in the coming months.

Resident Evil Village Gold Edition will launch on October 28, 2022, for PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
