Capcom has announced that Resident Evil Village will receive a free accessibility update in October. The update will be released alongside the launch of the game’s Winters Expansion DLC and Gold Edition.
New accessibility options that will be added include the highly requested subtitle changes, which allow players to adjust size and color as well as toggle backgrounds on and off. Character names will also be available to display in Story Mode to indicate who is speaking, and closed captioning will be enabled. A fixed reticle option is also being added. Although it’s a small update, the accessibility features being added will undoubtedly make a big difference to the player’s experience.
Resident Evil Village Gold Edition and Winters Expansion DLC are both set to release on October 28 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. Not only will the DLC feature a new third-person camera mode, it will also come with a new mercenary update featuring Lady Dimitrescu, Carl Heisenberg and Chris Redfield, and two new stages.
In terms of new story content, the Winters expansion will include a new chapter called Shadow of Rose, which begins 16 years after the events of the village. The player takes on the role of protagonist Ethan’s daughter Rose, who returns to the titular town while struggling with her new powers.
Resident Evil Re:Verse, the PvP multiplayer deathmatch game featuring characters from across the franchise, is expected to release on the same date. It was originally supposed to launch alongside Resident Evil Village last year but was later delayed.
