There’s more story coming to Resident Evil Village just in time for Halloween this year. A slate of downloadable content developer Capcom is calling Winters’ Expansion brings with it a new chapter called “Shadow of Rose,” which continues to the story of Village protagonist Ethan’s daughter as she grapples with her gross mold-based superpowers.
Capcom revealed the DLC chapter during its June game showcase, while also delivering a whole lot of details about what the new story will cover. Shadow of Rose picks up after the ending scene players saw in the Village base game, which jumps ahead in time 16 years to show us a now-adult Rose. Village’s ending suggested that Rose had abilities derived from her parents’ exposure to the mutagenic moss at the center of Resident Evil Village and Resident Evil VII, and that characters such as Chris Redfield are keeping a close eye on her because of it.
The Winters’ Expansion DLC is set to release on October 28, and also packs a new third-person mode for the base game and an expansion of Village’s Mercenaries mode, with new characters and stages.
