The Resident Evil Village: The Mercenaries trailer shows the playable Lady Dimitrescu in action

Alongside a new trailer, new gameplay details have been revealed for Resident Evil Village: The Mercenaries Additional Orders’ upcoming playable characters Lady Dimitrescu, Chris Redfield and Karl Heisenberg.

Resident Evil Village producer Tsuyoshi Kanda shared the information on PlayStation.Blog regarding the newest addition to Resident Evil Village’s Mercenaries mode that will be part of the Winters’ Expansion and Resident Evil Village Gold Edition.

One of the biggest draws to Additional Orders will undoubtedly be a playable version of everyone’s favorite 9ft tall villain, Lady Alcina Dimitrescu. When you become Lady Dimitrescu, you will be able to attack enemies with her terrifyingly long and sharp claws and a unique feature called the voltage meter. This meter will increase by attacking enemies or by using the item “Lady’s Lipstick”.

As the tension meter increases, Lady D’s movement speed and claw damage will also increase as well as giving her access to new moves. When the meter is maxed, her damage will also be at its highest. Oh, and you can also summon one of Lady Dimitrescu’s daughters to help you in battle.

Chris Redfield may not be nine feet tall, but he’s packed with serious firepower and “robust strength.” Chris has an attack meter that will fill up when he takes down enemies, and he will then be able to activate his attack mode to increase his movement speed, reload speed and attack damage. He will also have access to a Target Locator, which is “capable of unleashing a strong support attack.”

Karl Heisenberg is the last of the new playable characters and comes equipped with his massive hammer and the ability to control magnetic forces. By swinging the hammer, Karl can charge up to eventually unleash a massive area of ​​effect attack. His attack options also include a magnetic field ability to draw enemies close to you and a way to summon a Soldier Jet to lend you a helping hand.

Resident Evil Village: The Mercenaries Additional Orders is just part of the Winters’ Expansion heading to Resident Evil Village on October 28, 2022. It will be joined by the Village’s first story DLC in Shadows of Rose and a third-person mode.

If this has convinced you to pre-order, those who do will unlock the Street Wolf Outfit for Rosemary Winters to wear as you play through the Shadows of Rose story DLC. The outfit includes an emblem design of Chris’ Houndwolf Squad.
