The future playable characters Lady Dimitrescu, Chris Redfield, and Karl Heisenberg from Resident Evil Village: The Mercenaries Additional Orders have received fresh gameplay details in addition to a new teaser.
Tsuyoshi Kanda, the producer of Resident Evil Village, posted information on the PlayStation.Blog about the newest addition to the Mercenaries mode that will be included in the Winters’ Expansion and the Resident Evil Village Gold Edition.

A playable Lady Alcina Dimitrescu, the nine-foot-tall villain who is everyone’s favorite, will be one of the Additional Orders’ main pulls. When you transform into Lady Dimitrescu, you will have access to the Thrill Gauge, a special ability that allows you to attack adversaries with her terrifyingly long and sharp talons. This gauge will increase by attacking enemies or by using the “Lady’s Lipstick” item.
In addition to providing Lady D access to new moves, the Thrill Gauge enhances Lady D’s movement speed and nail damage. Her damage will be at its peak when the gauge is fully charged. Oh, and if you need assistance fighting, you can call on one of Lady Dimitrescu’s daughters.

Despite barely being nine feet tall, Chris Redfield is armed with powerful weapons and has “robust strength.” Chris can use his onslaught mode to significantly enhance his movement speed, reload speed, and attack damage as soon as his onslaught gauge is full, which happens as he defeats foes. He will also have access to a Target Locator, which is “capable of unleashing a strong supporting attack.”
The final new playable character, Karl Heisenberg, is armed with his enormous hammer and the capacity to manipulate magnetic fields. Karl can build up electricity with each swing of the hammer and then unleash a powerful area-of-effect assault. His assault options also include the ability to summon a Soldat Jet to assist you and a Magnetic Field ability to draw foes near to you.
If this has persuaded you to pre-order, those who do will be able to go through the Shadows of Rose narrative DLC with Rosemary Winters wearing the Street Wolf Outfit. The outfit features a Houndwolf Squad symbol created by Chris.
