Resident Evil Village is getting new DLC in October that will finally make its star, Lady Dimitrescu playable, and today Capcom finally revealed how she will play. Baroque furniture is shattered and hordes of enemies are given the 9’6″ chokehold. Also Chris Redfield will be there I think.
The Winters’ Expansion will be released on October 28th and will include a third-person mode for the base game as well as a new story DLC called Shadows of Rose, set in 16 years after the events of the game. But the part that keeps stealing the show is an add-on for the Mercenaries arcade mode. This will add the armed Chris Redfield and the badass Karl Heisenberg to the playable roster, and more importantly: Lady Alcina Dimitrescu herself.
Here’s how Capcom producer Tsuyoshi Kanda described her playstyle in a new way PlayStation blog post on Friday:
Lady Dimitrescu stands more than two meters tall and slices through enemies with her claws. Her unique Thrill Gauge increases by attacking enemies or using the Lady’s Lipstick item. As the Thrill Meter increases, Lady Dimitrescu’s movement speed and nail damage will increase, and new moves will also be unlocked. When the meter is full, their damage is at its highest.
Though brief, the new gameplay trailer shows some of that in action, with Dimitrescu looking down on wave after wave of lycans and zombies as she swiftly finishes off the demonic Pipsqueaks. Her powers even include a callback to her vanity throwing moment, which blew up on social media:
Lady D spends most of her time Resident Evil Village She’s slow to stalk you and she’s quite invulnerable. It will be nice to turn the tables in the new DLC. Fully fill up her Thrill Gauge, and you can even summon one of her three daughters to fight by your side. Hopefully this is just the first step on the long road to a full blown spin-off.
