Two or three individuals from Capcom have said the Resident Evil Village DLC, "Shadows of Rose" was created by moving focus away from a Chris Redfield story. As one of the most outstanding frightfulness games of 2021, many have been anticipating some new happy for the survival title, or at the very least they've been wanting to hear word about a potential development. However, it's the previous that's presently coming, which will incorporate a few different features.

Capcom is set to launch the Gold Version of the game on October 28. This impending release will feature Resident Evil Village's Shadows of Rose DLC, additional playable characters for the Mercenaries mode, and another third-individual perspective, which fans have been anticipating. However, it transpired that the titular Rose was not by any means the only focus of the DLC, considering ideas for Chris Redfield, the series' well established buff legend.

In a new interview with Inside, as spotted by GamesRadar, Resident Evil Village chief Kento Kinoshita has said they'd been working on an idea for some time prior to choosing Rose's story. The idea would have involved Chris Redfield "going off the deep end," yet they eventually moved focus to chip away at "Shadows of Rose" instead. A "Winters Expansion" was in development not long after the main game released last May. Whether this shelved plan will get made cannot be said at this stage, yet Kinoshita proceeds to say that the team wanted to pay attention to the fans, many of whom were "moved by the main story."


In that same interview, it was unveiled that Ethan's face will not be displayed in Resident Evil Village's third-individual mode, even assuming players move the camera around. The reason behind this, according to maker Masao Kawada, has to do with the main character being a representation of the player's self image. Assuming players truly do attempt to move the camera around to see his face, it will apparently snap back around or change angle.

Fans don't have long to wait now for RE8's DLC. It's been said that Shadows of Rose will finish the Winters story, and that means the following installment in the long-running survival loathsomeness series will probably feature new characters. However, it's too soon to say what will be coming in Resident Evil 9. While there almost certainly will be another section, all fans can do at this stage is speculate, and anticipate the arrival of the Gold Version of Village.
