Resident Evil Village Lady Dimitrescu Mercenaries

Capcom released a new trailer for Resident Evil Village Gold Edition this week. With it, we get a look at one specific piece of content that is set to arrive later this year: The Mercenaries Additional Orders. This is the DLC that adds Lady Dimitrescu, Heisenberg, and Chris Redfield as playable characters in the game's Mercenaries mode.

This latest video offers everyone a little taste of what it's like to be the 9-foot-tall Lady D. You will tower over your foes while slicing through them with her razor-sharp claw talon things. She's like Wolverine but taller and with a fashionable hat. Lady D will also be able to summon her daughters to aid her in battle.

Resident Evil Village Gold Edition, which includes the base game and DLC, will be out on October 28, 2022 for PlayStation, Xbox, and Steam. The Winters' Expansion will also be out on the same day for PlayStation, Xbox, Steam, and Stadia. Pre-orders are now open on your platform of choice.

In addition to the new playable Mercenaries characters, the DLC also adds in a third-person camera option, new Mercenaries maps, and the Shadows of Rose story expansion.

Lady Dimitrescu looms large over enemies in this action-packed mode, where she brings her nine-foot stature to bear against any Lycans or other foes unfortunate enough to cross her path. In combat, Lady Dimitrescu builds a Thrill meter by slicing adversaries to ribbons with her razor-sharp talons. This allows her to perform special actions like slamming down hostiles or summoning her daughters.

Meanwhile, Lord Karl Heisenberg possesses his own electrifying powers. Equipped with a massive hammer and the ability to manipulate magnetic currents, Heisenberg can really put a charge into his attacks. The terrifying creations from Heisenberg’s factory, Soldat Jets, also join him in the fray – but be mindful not to get caught in the crossfire of their self-destructive assaults. Heisenberg can also trade off movement speed to see what enemies are made of by pulling them in with his magnetic field or put on a show everyone can enjoy by slinging scrap metal, like saw blades, their way.

Chris Redfield also S.T.A.R.S. in “The Mercenaries Additional Orders.” The legendary BSAA agent packs a serious straight punch that can not only get him out of situations where he’s stuck between a rock and a hard place, but it also builds up his Onslaught gauge in a hurry as well. When Onslaught is active, Chris moves and reloads with lightning speed. Chris can also request support from the Hound Wolf Squad by using his target locator to pinpoint enemy positions and call in support strikes.

Alongside the new playable characters, “The Mercenaries Additional Orders” introduces two new stages, the Bloody Village and Bloody River, plus additional improvements to the experience.

Resident Evil Village Gold Edition and the Winters’ Expansion are both available for pre-order starting today on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
