Through a post on the PlayStation Blog, Capcom has revealed new details on the content coming to Resident Evil Village.
With a post on the PlayStation Blog, Capcom has unveiled new details on the content coming to Resident Evil Village , in particular on the playable characters in the additional orders mode of the Mercenaries and on the preorder bonuses of the Gold Edition version.
In this mode it will also be possible to play as Chris Redfield, Karl Heisenberg and Alcina Dimistrescu, as well as being able to explore two new scenarios, namely the hellish village and the hellish river. On the PlayStation Blog the characteristics of the three playable characters are described as follows:
- Chris Redfield uses many firearms and his enormous strength. When you defeat enemies using Chris, his attack gauge will increase. Once full, you can unleash his unique attack mode. In this mode, Chris’s movement speed, reload speed and destructiveness of Chris’s attack increase enormously, and you can take total control of the battlefield. If you manage to knock out an enemy using a Direct, the attack gauge will be enhanced.
- Karl Heisenberg is one of the four lords in the service of Mother Miranda. This character wields a huge hammer and has the ability to control magnetic forces. You can charge electricity by swinging the hammer and throwing it to the ground, then releasing all that energy to deal damage across a large area. By activating the Heisenberg Magnetic Field, you can bring an enemy close to you. Some attacks become even more powerful thanks to the Magnetic Field. Of course Heisenberg also has his terrifying creations at his disposal. Summon a Soldat Jet to the battlefield to take down enemies with a quick attack! But be careful… they self-destruct if they hit a wall.
- Alcina Dimistrescu: Almost three meters tall, Lady Dimitrescu slices enemies with her claws. Her unique thrill meter increases by attacking enemies or using the “Lady’s Lipstick” item. As the Thrill Gauge increases, Lady Dimitrescu’s movement speed and the power of her claws increases, and new moves are also unlocked. When the gauge is at maximum, her power will also be at maximum.
In reiterating that the Gold Edition version of the game will arrive on October 28, Capcom also unveiled pre-order bonuses related to the Winters’ Expansion DLC, which will include the Additional Mercenary Orders package, third-person mode and the Shadows of Rose DLC. With pre-order, players will also win the Street Wolf outfit for Rose.
