What’s The Shadow Of Rose About?

Set 16 years after the events of Resident Evil Village, Ethan’s daughter, Rosemary Winters Is beginning to struggle with her growing innate powers. We’ve done a full article on the DLC that covers everything players need to know.

Is Resident Evil Village Re:Verse Included?

Re: Verse comes free with all new copies of Resident Evil Village, make sure to redeem your included code on the relevant account so it doesn’t get lost! Re: Verse features legacy Resident Evil characters in four to six-person survival horror revenge matches.

These five-minute death matches are point-based, with downed players turning into powerful bioweapons to help turn the tide of battle. Players will also be able to find Virus Capsules to power up this state.

Do I Need To Buy Resident Evil Village Gold?

We would recommend it for new players, but returning players can just buy the Winters’ Expansion separately at a lower price point. This includes all of the extra content featured in the gold edition.
