Originally Capcom had absolutely no intentions of releasing any sort of DLC for Resident Evil Village. However, due to the game's massive success, as well as repeated requests from its players, they finally announced a few months back that they are starting development on new content.

The good news doesn't end there, however, as the latest Capcom Integrated Report has revealed that at least some of these upcoming additions will be free. While no actual information has been released, the Resident Evil Village free DLC was mentioned in the same breath as Monster Hunter Rise, which given the series' history with updates means that there's a pretty good chance the free DLC will be more than simply cosmetic.

If I were to hazard a guess, I'd say that we're likely to get something on the level of the "Not a Hero" campaign from Resident Evil 7. Just a short little story to wrap up some of the cliffhangers and most likely serve as a lead-in to the actual paid DLC which will undoubtedly be much larger in scope.

Once we get more information I'll make sure to let you know. As for now, all we can really do is sit and wait for Capcom to finish development.
