We liked Resident Evil Village a whole lot, scoring it an 85% in our review (opens in new tab). And obviously it's sold well, because Capcom announced in its E3 2021 presentation that DLC is on the way.

Well, "announced" is a strong word for how Capcom broke the news, which was with this plain text above on a black screen. Exciting stuff.

For now, the big focus for Resident Evil is the multiplayer shooter RE:Verse, which was originally meant to launch with Village but was delayed back in April (opens in new tab). In its E3 presentation Capcom said Re:Verse is now due to arrive in July.

Wes plays a little bit of everything, but he'll always jump at the chance to cover emulation and Japanese games.


When he's not obsessively optimizing and re-optimizing a tangle of conveyor belts in Satisfactory (it's really becoming a problem), he's probably playing a 20-year-old Final Fantasy or some opaque ASCII roguelike. With a focus on writing and editing features, he seeks out personal stories and in-depth histories from the corners of PC gaming and its niche communities. 50% pizza by volume (deep dish, to be specific).
