Capcom is adding an option to play the entirety of Resident Evil Village from a third-person viewpoint, but you'll need to buy the new DLC to access it.
Announced at today's Capcom Showcase, the new DLC for Resident Evil: Village includes three major features, including a third-person mode that finally gives us a look at the elusive Ethan Winters.
Despite the switch to third-person, it appears faceless protagonist Ethan Winters will continue to obscure his face, moving to face away from the camera (even though mods reveal what he looks like).
After 6 games (and multiple spin-offs) that used a third-person perspective, Resident Evil 7 and Village switched to a first-person view – a move that has been divisive among long term fans. Modders have sought to change that on PC versions of the game, but this is a more official (albeit paid-for) solution for Village.
Resident Evil Village's DLC drops on October 28, and will also include the mercenaries mode, with a playable Lady Dimitrescu, and a new, separate story about a young Rose. A Resident Evil Village Gold Edition will also be released at the time that includes the full game along with the DLC.
