GameCentral is running a new story campaign. resident evil The Village and the Possible Return of Lady Dimitrescu.

The pandemic must have fooled us, but it seems like a very long time has passed since then Resident Evil Village It was May 2021, and it appeared first. I don’t think it was a lot of people’s favorite entry in the series, but it certainly wasn’t ours. For Resident Evil 7, the idea of ​​getting one for the Village is a welcome prospect.

Capcom announced the DLC last June, but until very recently we had no clue what it was. It’s been revealed: a new third-person mode in the main game, new stages and characters in mercenary mode, and most importantly. , a new story campaign called Shadow of Lords.

I had to play Shadows Of Rose for about 30 minutes using the new third person view, which takes place 16 years after the events of the main game. It’s not clear if this will be the setting for all future games (it’s implied at the end of the main game), but here you are in control of Rose Winters. I want to remove

We started the campaign halfway through, and it seems to include a story in which Rose enters the “Gigantic Consciousness” in order to release her powers. Helping her is a new character called Michael, who can only communicate with her via the written word floating in the air in front of you. , who they are is a mystery.

Whatever the details of the backstory, the summary of the campaign is exploring Lady Dimitrescu’s castle while being chased by the minions of what appears to be the Duke’s evil doppelganger. Similar to Molded from Resident Evil 7, he has a nasty habit of sucking off Rose’s face when he catches up with her.

Also, some floors have a sort of liquid fungal growth that blocks your way and will kill you if you stay there too long, but many doors (including the main one outside the castle) have fungus emanates from a central flower-like nucleus.

One of your first tasks is to find power-ups that give you the power to destroy these cores, giving you access to more castles. Other growths are formed with no visible core, which suggests a mild Metroidvania element, or at least something like Dark Souls looping back into areas of the map via unexpected routes. It seems that.

The second power-up allows you to stun Molded (or whatever they are called) and destroy them from a distance, but this relies on a power bar that depletes quickly. Of course, you can just shoot them, but ammo is scarce, so you often have to craft them using component parts.

I didn’t see any places that weren’t in the original game, so I’m not sure if there were new areas, but the third-person camera worked perfectly fine, even in tiny little holes and tunnels that were originally designed with the first-person perspective in mind. leave.

The graphics are as great as before, and with ray tracing and other advanced features available on the PlayStation 5, the game looks even better than we remember.

The duration of the DLC is unknown. Castle took about 2-3 hours to complete in the original, but Shadows Of Rose has a completely different pace. It was a straight up first-person shooter. By comparison, the DLC is much closer in style and tone to the Resident Evil remake.

I don’t know if it will evolve as you go on, but I haven’t seen any signs of Mrs. Dimitrescu or her daughters, but I’m sure they’ll show up at some point. There are still no other clues as to what Resident Evil 9 will look like, but Shadows of Lords could give some very clear pointers. high.
