Shadows of Rose storyline

Resident Evil 8 Shadows of Rose

The ending of Resident Evil Village left us with questions as the camera introduces us to a 16-year old Rose visiting her father's grave. In this DLC Expansion, we get to pickup right where we left off 16 years after the events of Village where we get to play as a teenage Rose Winters and what happened to her after getting picked up at her father's grave.

Third Person Mode

Fans of the Resident Evil franchise will now get to experience Village in the third person perspective, similar to the classic POV used in the earlier games. Granted that this has been a popular mod for the gaming community, it's now part of the official game experience.

Additional Mercernaries Orders
