Diving Deep into the Details.

We shared a host of news and announcements from a wide range of upcoming Capcom games in today’s Capcom Showcase!

Check out a recording of the full broadcast for yourself below, or read on for the full summary of everything we showed.

Resident Evil Has a Selection of Good Things on the Way, Stranger

Last year, we announced DLC for Resident Evil Village, and now we’re excited to finally share a first glimpse. The new DLC, titled the Winters’ Expansion arrives on October 28, 2022 on all available platforms, with Resident Evil Village Gold Edition releasing at the same time.

Set 16 years after the events of Resident Evil Village, Shadows of Rose is a new tale that follows Rose Winters, the daughter of main protagonist Ethan, as she struggles with her terrifying powers. You’ll explore and survive a warped and mysterious realm inside the consciousness of the Megamycete in search of a cure.

This new story content isn’t all the Winters’ Expansion has in store. TheMercenaries Additional Orders is an update to the classic arcade action mode bringing new stages and new playable characters – Chris Redfield, Heisenberg, and yes, Lady Dimitrescu herself!

For those of you looking to experience Ethan’s harrowing journey from another viewpoint, you’re in luck. A new Third-Person Mode for Resident Evil Village is being added to the main campaign, letting you play the entire journey in a different way.

All of this content will be included in Resident Evil Village Gold Edition, a bundle of Winters’ Expansion and the main game, which launches alongside the DLC on October 28, 2022. Resident Evil Re:Verse, an online multiplayer experience included with new purchases of Resident Evil Village, will also go live on the same date.

We also showed an extended look at the newly announcedResident Evil 4. Director Yasuhiro Ampo and Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi shared their vision for this modern reimagining of the 2005 classic. The development team is aiming to dial up the original game’s feeling of loneliness and the fear of enemies blinded by zealotry. Resident Evil 4 launches next year on March 24, 2023.  

Oh, and one more thing. Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, and Resident Evil 7 biohazard reanimate today on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S with 4K resolution, ray tracing, high frame rate, and 3D audio. DualSense™ haptic feedback and adaptive trigger support is also available on PlayStation 5. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players can upgrade at no additional cost via the digital upgrade program and Smart Delivery. These upgrades will also be available today on PC via a patch.

An Early Dinosaur Outbreak on the Horizon in Exoprimal!

Your first opportunity to repel swarms of dinosaurs in Exoprimal arrives next month. Register today for a chance to participate in the Closed Network Test on Steam for PC this July, and be among the first Exofighters to try this team-based action game before it deploys in 2023.

ExoprimalDirector Takuro Hiraoka shared a briefing on the dynamic main game mode, Dino Survival. In this multiplayer experience, two squads of five Exofighters race to complete orders assigned by Leviathan, the sinister artificial intelligence who guides players through missions. Teams must complete missions before their rivals to win, and continue searching for a way to escape Leviathan’s deadly games.

The new trailer teased a selection of objectives that make up Dino Survival, including VTOL Defense, where squads defend downed aircraft from dinosaur onslaughts, and Omega Charge, which introduces a massive hammer that Exofighters will wield to obliterate targets.

We also unveiled two new Assault class Exosuits that are absolutely armed to the teeth. Barrage, a burning bombardier, and the rail gun-wielding sniper Vigilant. These two join a growing armory of futuristic suits that teams can swap between on-the-fly to coordinate and overcome any challenge.

While many situations will put you against hordes of dinosaurs, there are others where you’ll clash directly with opposing squads, and even some where rival teams must band together to take-down common foes, like the twisted Neo Tyrannosaurus.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Enters a New Frontier

Monster Hunter series Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto joined the Capcom Showcase for an exciting new look at Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. We shared a new trailer that featured the revitalization of the Jungle area from the second generation of Monster Hunter games, the introduction of Espinas the Thorn Wyvern from Monster Hunter Frontier, and the return of the flagship beast from Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Gore Magala.

We’re also happy to announce that a free demo for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak will emerge shortly after 7pm PDT tomorrow, June 14, 2022, for Nintendo Switch and Steam. Digital pre-orders are now available on both platforms and come packed with a bonus Palamute and Palico layered armor set.

Looking to track down the next content update beyond the June 30, 2022 launch? Get ready for Lucent Nargacuga, the Moon Swift Wyvern, returning in August with the iconic Forlorn Arena. Beyond that, more content is planned for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak this fall, winter, and into next year.
