Resident Evil Village Is Getting A Third-Person Mode This October

Capcom has announced that the Gold Edition of Resident Evil Village will be arriving on October 28th, 2022, introducing a variety of new DLC features including a new campaign and a third-person mode for the main story!

You can see some clips of the third-person mode in the new trailer below, which should provide a great excuse for everyone to dive back into Village later this year and try it out from a new perspective.

"The Highly-Anticipated Third Person Mode is Here! You can now play the story mode from the third-person perspective. In this mode, players have an over-the-shoulder viewpoint and can see Ethan in action. This new vantage point provides a fresh experience for both new players and veterans alike to experience Ethan's terrifying journey."

Meanwhile, the new story content is called Shadows of Rose and will continue the story of Ethan's daughter Rosemary, and you can again take a look at some gameplay of this in the new reveal trailer. Here's a brief:

"16 years after the events of Resident Evil Village... Rosemary Winters, Ethan's beloved daughter, has grown up and is now struggling with terrifying powers. In search of a way to break free from her curse, Rose enters the consciousness of the Megamycete. Rose's journey takes her to a mysterious realm where memories of the past return to create a warped and twisted world of nightmares."

Other additions this October include The Mercenaries Additional Orders introducing new playable characters and stages, and the heavily delayed Resident Evil Re:Verse will finally be launching as well.

"Chris Redfield, Karl Heisenberg, and Alcina Dimitrescu are now joining The Mercenaries as playable characters. New stages have also been added to provide additional breadth and versatility."

The Gold Edition of Resident Evil Village will be available to pre-order at a later date, or if you just want the DLC without the base game, it'll be packaged together as the "Winters' Expansion" when it arrives this October as well.
