Capcom Showcase June 2022: Everything Announced, Including Resident Evil Village Story DLC – IGN

Capcom Showcase has arrived and revealed lots of new details for games that have already been revealed. Although there were no new game releases, we finally got to know about the long-awaited Resident Evil Village story DLC ‘Shadows of Rose’, we saw gameplay of Resident Evil 4 Remake, and we saw more of Exoprimal and Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak.

Oh, and we found out that we will soon be able to play as Lady Dimitrescu in Resident Evil Village’s Mercenaries mode!

It was revealed even more during the show’s 30-minute playing time, and this summary will gather every announcement and trailer in one place to ensure you do not miss anything.

Resident Evil Village Winter expansion includes Shadows of Rose Story DLC

Capcom has finally revealed Shadows of Rose – Resident Evil Village’s long awaited story DLC. The new story will follow Ethan Winter’s daughter Rose and will serve as a kind of sequel to the main campaign. Unlike the main game, Shadows of Rose will take place from a third-person perspective and will see her enter the “consciousness of the Megamycete”, a place where “time and space are distorted beyond recognition.”

The Shadows of Rose story DLC will be released on October 28, 2022, as part of Winters’ Expansion DLC.

Resident Evil Village’s mercenary mode soon lets you play as Lady Dimitrescu

Resident Evil Village’s Winters’ Expansion will also add The Mercenaries: Additional Orders which i.a. will finally let players play as Lady Alcina Dimitrescu. Chris Redfield and Karl Heisenberg will also join the Mercenaries and each will play in their own unique way. I mean, Lady Dimitrescu is over nine feet tall so I guess that makes sense!

The Mercenaries: Additional Orders will be released on October 28, 2022, as part of Winters’ Expansion DLC.

Resident Evil Village gets a third-person location

Resident Evil Village is currently only playable in first-person mode, but that will change on October 28 when a new third-person mode will be added as part of Winters’ Expansion.

Resident Evil Village’s third-person mode will be released on October 28, 2022, as part of Winters’ Expansion DLC.

While many were hoping for an announcement about Dragon’s Dogma 2 at this Capcom Showcase, we were only promised that a Dragon’s Dogma 10th anniversary event will take place on Thursday, June 16th. So even if the unveiling of a new game would have been a wonderful surprise, at least the hope is still alive for this week!
