Resident Evil Village is getting a 'Gold Edition' later this year on October 28th, about a year and a half after the game's initial launch. Third-person mode for the game's campaign is one of the big new additions, but a new Mercenaries mode trailer gives us a sneak peek at another fresh feature.

Mercenaries, the long-time RE bonus mode, is being expanded in this year's Village re-release. 'Additional Orders' will bring is some new options for players, including the ability to play as RE villains, such as the now-infamous Lady Dimitrescu.

The mode will also be adding a few new stages into the mix for its Gold Edition release, so all in all, it looks like Mercenaries is getting a pretty sizeable expansion. Resident Evil Village: Gold Edition launches October 28th on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
