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

    Sony Warns PlayStation 5 Supply COULD POSSIBLY BE Scarce Until 2022

    As relayed by Bloomberg, Sony has warned investors that the PlayStation 5 may be hard to come by for consumers until at least 2022.The system, which first debuted on November 12, 2020, has been extremely limited in supply for its entire six months on store shelves. Players hoping to secure the system to play Returnal, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, or any number of other Sony first-party experiences have had to wait on online queues in order to get a chance at purchasing the hardware.RELATED: Lost Judgment Trailer Released, Yakuza Will Be an RPG Going ForwardDespite the limited availability, the system has sold 7.8 million units through March 31, and Sony CFO Hiroki Totoki stated that this high demand is part of the reason for the lack of systems.“I don’t think demand is calming down this year,” Totoki said. “Even if we secure a lot more devices and produce many more units of the PlayStation 5 next year, our supply wouldn’t be able to catch up with demand.”He also compared the console to the PlayStation 4’s success, saying that the proven track record of Sony’s gaming efforts means that the demand isn’t going away anytime soon. Elsewhere in his statement, Totoki also listed the stay-at-home demands of consumers amidst the pandemic as a cause of this unusually long drought of PlayStations.RELATED: Returnal’s Latest Patch Fixes Trophies, Rebalances BiomesReturnal is one of the first games from Sony to run exclusively on PlayStation 5, with many of their launch titles coming out simultaneously on PlayStation 4. New games that don’t run on old hardware could make the PS5 even more desirable for players, which will squeeze the supply line even more as the months roll on.
