"Resident Evil" fans have a lot to look forward to thanks to some huge announcements during Capcom's E3 showcase.
Two months since their latest release, Capcom is showing no signs of slowing down one bit. It has been confirmed that "Resident Evil Village" will be getting a DLC in the future. Capcom also announced that the delayed "Resident Evil Re:Verse" will be coming out in July.
Resident Evil Village DLC
Per IGN, there are no other details available regarding the upcoming DLC content for Resident Evil Village. However, Capcom did say that the DLC is in development due to "popular demand."
"Resident Evil Village" is the latest installment of the "RE" franchise and was released last May 7 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Stadia, and Windows PC. It is the direct sequel of "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard" and continues the story of Ethan Winters, who is now searching for his missing daughter.
Chris Redfield, a longtime main character of the series, makes a return to the franchise as a playable character after a cameo in the previous game. Will he be the focus of the DLC as well? Will it still be Ethan? Or will it provide a backstory for the gigantic Lady Dimitrescu? Fans will have to wait a little bit more to find out.
Resident Evil Re:Verse Release Date
The July release date "Resident Evil Re:Verse" is surely welcomed news for anyone looking to play a multiplayer game in the franchise. "Re:Verse" was originally slated to be released with "Resident Evil Village" last May.
A deathmatch-style game, "Resident Evil Re:Verse" is set to be the franchise' 25th anniversary celebration. According to Polygon, it is set to feature many of the much-loved heroes and villains of the series, including Leon Scott Kennedy, Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, Ada Wong, and Nemesis.
The game is currently available for pre-purchase on Steam.
Resident Evil Series and Film
Unfortunately, there is no word on the sequel of "Resident Evil 8" despite a hidden message teasing it in the game. Video games, however, aren't the only "RE" content that fans can look forward to during the wait. As previously announced, Netflix has two Resident Evil series in the works. The CGI animation Series "Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness" is scheduled to premiere on the streaming site on July 8, 2021.
A still untitled live-action series with eight episodes is also in the works. Multiple castings have been made, according to Digital Spy, including Lance Reddick as the villain Albert Wesker.
The "Resident Evil" film franchise is also getting a reboot. The first film, "Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City" will be released on November 24, 2021, by Sony Pictures and is based on the first two games of the franchise.
