If you haven’t been able to get enough of Resident Evil Village since it launched last year, the good news is that a large amount of content is headed to the Capcom survival horror game. The Winters’ Expansion adds a brand new storyline featuring a grown-up Rose Winters and is set 16 years after the events of Resident Evil Village.
This scenario has a psychological horror edge, but trailers have suggested that Rose has powerful new abilities inherited from her parents’ exposure to the mutagenic moss at the center of Resident Evil Village and Resident Evil VII. The other big feature in this expansion is a third-person mode where you’ll be able to experience the entire game and its expansion, a return to the more classic camera angle last seen in older Resident Evil games and the recent remakes.
In addition to that, there is an expansion of the Village’s Mercenaries mode, which adds new characters and stages. Over at Fanatical, you can get the Winters Expansion on PC for just $17, a 15% discount from its launch price of $20. The DLC isn’t too bad either, and if you’re in the mood for a quick slice of Resident Evil spookiness , you’ll want to check it out.
“Shades of Rose might be the most notable part of the Winters Expansion, but it’s The Mercenaries that provides the biggest bang for your buck,” Richard Wakeling wrote in GameSpot’s Resident Evil Village: Winters’ Expansion review.
