Capcom Reveals New Details About Shadows of Rose DLC for Resident Evil Village


In a series of interviews during the Tokyo Game Show 2022, Capcom developers shared new details about Shadows of Rose, the DLC for Resident Evil: Village starring Rose Winters. Among other things, the expansion will focus more on survival elements than the base game.

According to director Kento Kinoshita, surviving Shadows of Rose will be harder than any other Resident Evil game. Gameplay as Rose will be more defensively oriented, as the goal will be survival rather than killing anything that moves.

Kinoshita explains that Rose doesn’t wield firearms and isn’t particularly athletic, and this will be reflected in the gameplay: she will move slower than Ethan and her aim will be more inaccurate. On the other hand, Rose will be able to count on a number of unique abilities, which, however, will have a purely defensive function in battle. They will also be at the center of some of the puzzles offered in the DLC.

Shadows of Rose will take us back to Dimitrescu’s castle in Resident Evil Village, but it won’t be the only location in the DLC. The developers described the environment as “distorted”, rooms and objects are not where they should be. The level design also changed from the original game, suggesting that the DLC would become increasingly twisted and psychedelic as the adventure progressed.

The Capcom developers also revealed that there is a big “mystery” in Shadows of Rose that will be revealed before the end of the expansion, and that all the monsters and characters have a deeper meaning than it might seem at first glance. For this reason, they believe that playing the DLC for the second time after discovering the “truth” will allow players to take a different look at the whole experience. Moreover, it seems that not all creatures will be dangerous to Rose, and the player will have to figure out which characters and monsters can help him, and which are a threat.

Shadows of Rose for Resident Evil Village will be available from October 28, 2022.
