Although 2022 is a relatively quiet year for Capcom, they still filled a 30-minute showcase of upcoming games and DLC, including Street Fighter 6, Exoprimal, and Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak (above).
Resident Evil Village is getting a major expansion with Winters’ Expansion, releasing October 28. The expansion stars a teenage Rose Winters, daughter of Ethan, as she explores a terrifying world using her powers. The DLC also adds a third-person mode and new playable characters in Chris Redfield, Heisenberg, and Lady Dimitrescu.
The showcase also revealed the release date for the upcoming “modern reimagining” of Resident Evil 4, often cited as the best game in the series. The survival-horror remake will launch on March 24, 2023.
For even more Resident Evil, Resident Evil 2, 3, and 7 have been released on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S with enhanced features such as 4K resolution, ray tracing, and haptic feedback. Patches for the PC versions have been released as well.
