Last month, during Capcom Showcasethe publisher unveiled a Gold Edition and the extension Winters for Resident Evil Villagethe latter to add a third-person view for the campaign, the DLCs narrative The Shadows of Rose where we will embody Rose Winters 16 years after the events of the base game and additional content for The mode mercenaries. It is the latter that interests us most now since it was entitled to its dedicated trailersome visuals and details.
Chris Redfield, Karl Heisenberg and Lady Dimitrescu will be added for even more fun, each with their own skills, as well as the cards Bloody Village and Bloody River.
- Lady Dimitrescu largely towers over enemies in this action-packed mode, where she pits her 9-foot stature against any Lycans or other foes unfortunate enough to cross her path. In battle, Lady Dimitrescu drives up a chill meter by slicing opponents to shreds with her razor-sharp talons. This allows him to perform special actions like shooting down enemies or summoning his daughters.
- the Lord Karl Heisenberg has its own electrifying powers. Equipped with a massive hammer and the ability to manipulate magnetic currents, Heisenberg can really put a charge into his attacks. The terrifying creations of the Heisenberg factory, the Soldat Jets, also join him in the fray – but be careful not to get caught in the crossfire of their self-destructive assaults. Heisenberg can also trade his movement speed to see what enemies are made of by pulling them in with his magnetic field or cause a spectacle for everyone to enjoy by throwing scrap metal, like saw blades, in their direction.
- Chris Redfield is also one of the STARS of “The Mercenaries Additional Orders”. The legendary BSAA agent has a serious, direct punch that can not only get him out of situations where he’s stuck between a rock and a hard place, but also increases his Assault gauge in a hurry. When active, Chris moves and reloads at lightning speed. He can also request help from the Hound Wolf Squad by using his target locator to detect enemy positions and call in supporting strikes.
In addition, any pre-order of the Gold Edition will give access to the outfit street wolf for Pink. As a reminder, the release date for all these new features is set for October 28 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC (Steam). Resident Evil Village is otherwise always sold on Amazon if you don’t want to wait until then to find out.
