Capcom released some new information today regarding the upcoming expansion to their hit game Resident Evil Village. In particular, "The Mercenaries Additional Orders" is touched upon, revealing the option to play as Lady Dimitrescu, Karl Heisenberg, or Chris Redfield in the Mercenaries game mode.

Here's a brief description of what to expect with each character:

  • Lady Dimitrescu looms large over enemies in this action-packed mode, where she brings her nine-foot stature to bear against any Lycans or other foes unfortunate enough to cross her path. In combat, Lady Dimitrescu builds a Thrill meter by slicing adversaries to ribbons with her razor-sharp talons. This allows her to perform special actions like slamming down hostiles or summoning her daughters.
  • Lord Karl Heisenberg possesses his own electrifying powers. Equipped with a massive hammer and the ability to manipulate magnetic currents, Heisenberg can really put a charge into his attacks. The terrifying creations from Heisenberg’s factory, Soldat Jets, also join him in the fray – but be mindful not to get caught in the crossfire of their self-destructive assaults. Heisenberg can also trade off movement speed to see what enemies are made of by pulling them in with his magnetic field or put on a show everyone can enjoy by slinging scrap metal, like saw blades, their way.
  • Chris Redfield also S.T.A.R.S. in “The Mercenaries Additional Orders.” The legendary BSAA agent packs a serious straight punch that can not only get him out of situations where he’s stuck between a rock and a hard place, but it also builds up his Onslaught gauge in a hurry as well. When Onslaught is active, Chris moves and reloads with lightning speed. Chris can also request support from the Hound Wolf Squad by using his target locator to pinpoint enemy positions and call in support strikes.

In addition to playing as the three above characters, the DLC will also add two new maps to the Mercenaries mode, which are Bloody Village and Bloody River. All console pre-orders will give the Street Wolf Outfit for Rose Winters in the Shadows of Rose DLC episode.

Resident Evil Village Gold Edition, including the Winter's Expansion is releasing on October 28, 2022 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, and PC via Steam. Pre-orders are available now! The DLC alone will be available for purchase for $19.99 whereas the Gold Edition will be available for $49.99.
