Check out the new trailer for Resident Evil Gold Edition and the Winters’ Expansion below:
The Mercenaries: Additional Orders
The new expansion adds 2 new stages to Mercenaries mode, The Bloody Village and The Bloody River (the latter has to be unlocked). It also adds new playable characters for the mode, namely:
Legendary hero, Chris Redfield. A veteran skilled in the use of a multitude of weapons.
As Chris defeats enemies, his Onslaught gauge will build up. This gauge can be used to enter the Onslaught state, which gives Chris increased attack power and movement speed, faster reloads, and a wealth of other benefits.
The state will drain the Onslaught gauge and deactivate if the gauge empties, however, the state can be kept active longer by defeating lots of enemies quickly.
Chris’s special abilities include Target Locator, which calls down air support like in the game, as well as Straight Punch, an attack powerful enough that’s capable of moving boulders.
One of the Four Lords who serve Mother Miranda. Heisenberg wields a giant hammer and possesses the ability to control magnetic forces, both of which he uses to torment his enemies.
Clobbering enemies with his hammer builds up an electric charge which can then be unleashed with a slam.
He can also activate a magnetic field, using the magnetism to increase his attack power and grant him access to other special actions.
Heisenberg can perform the Hammer Slam, which does exactly what it says, summon the Soldat Jet, his minion that will charge forward and explode upon hitting a wall, and create a Magnetic Field, which slows him down but makes enemies stick together.
One of the Four Lords who serve Mother Miranda. Standing more than 9 feet tall, Lady Dimitrescu towers over her enemies before shredding them to pieces with her razor-sharp talons.
Attacking enemies or using Lady’s Lipstick will heighten her Thrill, and as it increases so does her attack power and movement speed. Raising it also give her access to more actions.
Lady D can Slice enemies with her claws with either or both hands, buff herself with Thrill and Summon Daughters to torment enemies like they did to Ethan.
Pre-ordering Resident Evil Village Gold Edition also comes with The Street Wolf Outfit, an alternative outfit that Rosemary Winters can wear in the new story included with the Winters’ Expansion, Shadows of Rose. Fans may notice that the outfit has the emblem of Chris Redfield’s elite Hound Wolf unit.
