On October 28th, “Shadows of Rose” will be the first story DLC for Resident Evil Village, in which, unlike in the main game, we slip into the role of Ethan’s daughter Rose in the third person perspective. Noisy official informationfrom developer Capcom, a far greater challenge awaits us on the normal level of difficulty, which is mainly due to the severe limitation of resources.
Village Story DLC is going to be a tough nut to crack
Already in Review of Resident Evil Village we recommended everyone who is looking for a survival challenge to increase the level of difficulty right at the beginning. On “normal” we always had enough shotgun ammunition in the bag and when we ran out, there was always a massive alternative in the inventory.
According to Capcom, that should change in the story DLC. Should be more precise Ammo, healing items, and other useful items be far more limited compared to the main game. For Resi veterans, “Shadows of Rose” goes back to the roots. We remember: Especially in the classics, we had to use every item carefully and every shot with the shotgun in the dark hurt twice as much.

What awaits you in the story DLC “Shadows of Rose”
The expansion takes place like the epilogue of Village 16 years after the main story. To better understand her powers and find a cure, Rose travels into the mind of the Megamycete – you remember the giant organism at the end of the game? Inside, she encounters a parallel world through which she is guided by a ghost named Michael.
You can get the story DLC either by purchasing the Resident Evil Village Gold Edition or by purchasing the Winters expansion. The release is October 28, 2022 for PS4/PS5, Xbox consoles and PC.
Do you think it’s good that the story DLC is getting a little crisper again?
