The DLC ‘Shadows of Rose’ will mark the end of the story of the Winters family. And Capcom has revealed how long this downloadable content will be. A more than considerable duration, by the way.
The lovers of ‘Resident Evil’ in general, as well as ‘RE 7’ and ‘Village’ in particular, they are in luck. On October 28, 2022, ‘Shadows of Rose’ will hit the market. It’s about that DLC of ‘Resident Evil Village‘ that Capcom announced “by popular demand”. New details about what it will bring have been revealed today. More specifically, Capcom has revealed what the duration of the downloadable content will be, which is closely related to the argument. In other words, Capcom’s intention is for this expansion to serve as final closure of the Winters story.
A duration of 4 hours
The fact is that, so that they can tell that conclusion well, the DLC needs to last about 4 hours of play. This is what Capcom’s Kento Kinoshita confirmed in an interview for IGN Japan (via Wccftech) on the occasion of TGS 2022. On the other hand, this not only confirms what ‘Shadows of Rose’ will be like, but also it also serves to determine that the future of the saga goes through exploring new characters. Something that perhaps many thought, but that would confirm that Rose will not have more travel, at least as the main character.
Anyway, right now everything is speculation regarding the future of the franchise, since Kinoshita himself assured that he would not reveal “absolutely” nothing in regards. We do have more information about the DLC itself, which will show us the survival story of Rose, 16 years after what she experienced in ‘Village’, where I was just a baby. We leave you with the description of ‘Shadows of Rose’:
“16 years after the events from ‘Resident Evil Village’… Rosemary Winters, Ethan’s beloved daughter, has grown up and now fights with terrifying powers. Searching for a way to break free of her curse, Rose enters the consciousness of the Megamicea.. Rose’s journey takes her to a mysterious realm where memories from the past return to create a twisted, twisted world of nightmares”.
Finally, we remind you that the launch of the DLC will coincide with the launch of the Gold Edition of ‘Village’. And this will include all the original content, the DLC and also two very interesting new features. On the one hand the Mercenaries mode and on the other hand the possibility of play the original ‘Village’ campaign with a third person mode.
