16 years after the events of Resident Evil Village…
Rosemary Winters, Ethan’s beloved daughter, has grown up and is now struggling with terrifying powers. In search of a way to break free from her curse, Rose enters the consciousness of the Megamycete.
Rose’s journey takes her to a mysterious realm where memories of the past return to create a warped and twisted world of nightmares.PlayStation Blog
In addition to the campaign, fans of The Mercenaries will gain the ability to play as Chris Redfield, along with Karl Heisenberg and Alcina Dimitrescu. The PlayStation Blog post suggests there might be more playable characters yet to be revealed. If that isn’t enough, new stages will also be added.
Fans hoping for a third-person mode will finally get to experience that with the Winters’ DLC. It will include new animations and offer a new take on the terrifying adventure.
This will allow you to play the main story mode in a third-person perspective. This new viewpoint will let you see Ethan as he faces off against his enemies. Those of you who are new as well as those of you who have yet to experience Resident Evil Village can experience the story in this fresh perspective.PlayStation Blog
