Resident Evil Village was already a smash hit, but the game itself is about to get bigger.
Capcom announced during its E3 2021 presentation that the survival horror title will be getting bigger. The Resident Evil Village story will continue on, expanding on what has been a strong recent history of Resident Evil titles boasting solid DLC.
Resident Evil Village helped cement the franchise as one of the biggest video game IPs in the world after its reputation was damaged by a string of poorly received titles including Resident Evil 6 and Operation Racoon City. Capcom also took a hit with other misfires including Street Fighter V. It didn’t help that the publisher is also rapidly increasing its presence in the gambling space through platforms like slots online Canada, which many latched onto as evidence of Capcom’s waning commitment to producing actual high-quality video games.
There is very little information in regards to the upcoming DLC. Resident Evil 7 had a wide variety of DLC including comedy mini-games, story expansions, and much more.
When it comes to Resident Evil Village, one of the characters that every player loves is Lady Dimitrescu. She is a complex character with a fully realized background, but the character went viral ahead of the game’s release. She isn’t the main enemy of Village however, but her popularity will likely lead to some DLC centered around her.
Outside of Dimitrescu, there’s plenty of blank canvas surrounding Mother Miranda to work with when it comes to expanding the story of RE8. There is also a long list of established Resident Evil characters that could be brought into the modern titles. Capcom takes every opportunity it can get to feature Ada Wong, Chris Redfield is arguably the character most synonymous with the series at this point, and Jill Valentine is back in the spotlight after the Resident Evil 3 remake.
Either way, Capcom’s recent body of work when it comes to DLC is cause for optimism. Odds are that it will be a solid piece of content, regardless of what direction it goes in.
