Resident Evil Village DLC Announced

Resident Evil Village had no season pass or much in the way of future plans outside of RE: Verse, the attached multiplayer project coming in July. However, Capcom has just revealed that it is creating DLC for Resident Evil Village “due to popular demand.” The publisher and developer did not give any details on what this upcoming DLC would be.And that might be because it is very early in development and likely wasn’t planned beforehand, hence the lack of a season pass. The slide announcing the DLC said Capcom was just starting on it, meaning we probably won’t see anything for some time. The slide ended with Capcom promising “more info later.”MORE: Netflix’s Live-Action Resident Evil Series Reveals Main CastResident Evil has had a bunch of odd DLC. Resident Evil 7 had a slew of unique packs from a Saw-like version of the card game 21 to a roguelike adventure to a free campaign starring Chris Redfield. It was all wildly different and it remains to be seen if Capcom will emulate this off-the-wall approach with Village or go for a more story-based expansion.MORE: Ada Wong Was Cut From Resident Evil Village

    VW 'Project Trinity' teases cars that unlock features on-demand

    Volkswagen claims it's "not afraid" of the threat posed by any Apple Car and released this shadowy teaser image that may represent why. The image is a teaser for Project Trinity, an electric sedan that CEO Ralf Brandstätter called "our software dream car." Like any pie in the sky concept it of course is designed in anticipation of advanced self-driving capabilities, long range electric propulsion systems and fast charging battery tech, but that software bit is where it shows the plans in place. According to VW the plan is to start production on this car in 2026, as part of a vehicle lineup with fewer variants and where everything is standardized. What that means is that instead of building multiple versions of the same car with varying capabilities, they'll build one version with everything included, but only unlockable "on demand" — and likely for a fee. Tesla has already shown something like this with driver assist tech that's available to unlock after the car is purchased, while BMW has tried selling features with a subscription model and is looking at expanding. As Autoblog points out, VW's version could extend to features like AWD, or unlocking GTI-level aero and handling packages on a short-term or even per-mile basis. According to the CEO, "In the future, the individual configuration of the vehicle will no longer be determined by the hardware at the time of purchase. Instead, customers will be able to add functions on demand at any time via the digital ecosystem in the car."
