In October 2022, a new accessibility update will go live for Resident Evil Village. This free update will include the choice to toggle subtitle sizes, as well as color and background. Speaker names will also appear in the subtitles when you play the game in story mode, and closed captions will be available.
The final portion of the accessibility update will add a permanent reticle on the screen. The accessibility update will launch at the same time as the Winters’ Expansion and Gold Edition. That means it will likely appear in-game around October 28, 2022. The accessibility update will be available for all versions and platforms of Resident Evil Village.
The Gold Edition of Resident Evil Village will be the base game and the contents of the Winters’ Expansion. Winters’ Expansion will consist of three main parts: third person mode, The Mercenaries Additional Orders, and Shadows of Rose. Chris, Lady Dimitrescu, and Heisenberg will be playable in The Mercenaries with Additional Orders. Meanwhile, Shadows of Rose is a sequel of sorts in which you can play as Ethan’s daughter, Rose.
Resident Evil Village is available on the PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and Windows PC. It will come out on Macs in late 2022. Resident Evil Village Gold Edition and Winter’s Expansion will come out on October 28, 2022, as will the accessibility update.
