Resident Evil Village is getting DLC, as announced in Capcom's E3 showcase this evening, and it is offering a new chapter in the acclaimed horror experience.
We had an inkling that the game would be getting DLC as the unlockable concept art available to view in Village showed off a number of unused story avenues. For example, Ada Wong was seen in an extremely dramatic outfit reminiscent of a plague doctor. The female cast of characters like Lady Dimitrescu got a lot of love from the community... and their adoration did lead to a number of questionable mods for the game. Turns out what really gets gamers going is a nearly ten foot tall vampire with razor sharp talons and a penchant for the blood of virgins. Who knew. There is a theory that Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil Village are actually a part of a trilogy which will end with Resident Evil 9. To be honest, it's a high bar to clear from Village, because there's a Hot Fuzz Easter egg in the remote Romanian settlement. And that gains it major points, naturally.
Check out our review of the game, which Mark describes as a love letter to the series, containing lots and lots of lycanthropes.
If you ask GAMINGbible, Resident Evil Village already has a tonne of replayability, from the Mercenaries mode to the challenges like completing the game in under three hours. Yeah, I'm yet to get round to that one too. Excitingly, this DLC will bring another dimension to the original story, which definitely drew from Resident Evil 4 in its action-horror atmosphere and rural and isolated setting. Furthermore, the game is currently the second best-selling video game of 2021 so far, with the PlayStation 5 version leading the way with almost half of all sales. Considering how scarce stocks of the console are, this is one heck of an achievement. It's also possible that this DLC will link to Resident Evil: ReVerse, the online-only multiplayer title that comes with the game and allows players to embody the most iconic goodies and baddies of the series. Finally, the size and structure of Village does lend itself to extra chapters, and we'll keep you in the loop when we learn more.
