The story of Resident Evil Village will continue in a brand-new DLC expansion, Capcom revealed during a livestream from E3 2021 showcase on Monday.
“By popular demand, development has just started on additional DLC for Resident Evil Village,” the publisher revealed through an on-screen announcement. Although Capcom didn’t provide any further details on what would be included in the Resident Evil Village DLC, they did promise to reveal “more info later.” (We wonder if there will be any new characters introduced to rival the fan infamy and cosplay popularity of Lady Dimitrescu, one of the game’s foremost antagonists, which would be a feat in itself.)
Capcom revealed at the end of May that Resident Evil Village had “shipped over 4 million units worldwide,” including both physical and digital copies in its first 20 days of availability, meaning it had sold faster than the previous three major Resident Evil releases, with previous entry Resident Evil 7 selling 3.5 million copies in nine weeks and the remakes of Resident Evil 2 selling 4 million in a month and Resident Evil 3 selling 2.7 in three months time.
Capcom also confirmed that Resident Evil offshoot multiplayer game, RE:Verse, which will be free for owners of Resident Evil Village, will go live sometime in July. A Resident Evil 4 remake, originally slated for a 2020 release, is now slated for release sometime in 2022.
