Editor’s Note: Check out our full review of Resident Evil Village: The Winters Expansion.
The Winters’ Expansion provides three new ways to enjoy the award-winning Resident Evil Village. The highly requested “Third Person Mode” allows players to experience Ethan Winters’ journey from a whole new angle with an over-the-shoulder perspective and never-before-seen animations. Meanwhile, Ethan is joined in “The Mercenaries Additional Orders” by three new playable characters.
Chris Redfield, Lord Heisenberg, and Lady Dimitrescu join the fray, each wielding a unique arsenal of weapons and skills in this arcade-inspired mode, which now includes extra stages and balance improvements. “Shadows of Rose” rounds out the expansion with a new story set 16 years after the events of the campaign. This scenario follows a now grown-up Rose Winters in search of a cure for her unwanted powers. Explore a twisted realm of consciousness and wield Rose’s abilities to survive the nightmares that await her.
A demo for Resident Evil Village Cloud is available now via the Nintendo eShop. This streaming demo enables players to try the cloud version for a limited time and test out their network environment.
