Capcom has revealed Resident Evil Village’s story DLC, Shadows of Rose.
This story contains spoilers for Resident Evil Village.
The DLC expansion will follow Rose, the daughter of main game protagonist, Ethan Winters. In contrast the the core game, it will take place from a third-person viewpoint.
As teased by the game’s post-credits scene, Rose is now a teenager, and is assisting Chris Redfield in some regard. Given that we got a tease that Ethan is still alive at the end of the game, we can assume he’ll factor into the story somehow.
Perhaps most interestingly, the DLC will take place in third-person, marking the first time a new, mainline Resident Evil game has used the perspective since Resident Evil 6. The DLC will be available on October 28.

We awarded Resident Evil Village an 8/10 review last year, calling it “a genuinely engrossing and increasingly combat-heavy continuation of the Ethan Winters story.” Its events look increasingly central to the Resident Evil universe too, considering Resident Evil 4 Remake may be adding new connections to the newer game.
