Resident Evil will receive 8 free add-on packages

BingMag.com Resident Evil will receive 8 free add-on packages

Capcom confirmed earlier this year that it is working on new content for Resident Evil Village. Some future add-on packages now appear to be free. News of free content for gaming is mentioned in Capcom's latest report with financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021.

Given the way Capcom intends to support Resident Evil games after its release, this fact Which apparently had no plans for the eighth version came as a surprise to many players. Given how hard the company supported the game, the surprise was even greater. At E3, however, Capcom announced that development of an add-on pack for this scary and survival game had begun.

Clearly, the new content was in its infancy at the time, so it makes sense Since then, we have not heard anything about it other than the fact that it is under construction. However, it seems that although the full details of the company's post-launch plans for Resident Evil Village are still unclear, at least some future content may be free.

This free add-on package was mentioned by Capcom CEO Yuichi Agawa as he talked about the company's development plans. Agawa began by discussing how to allocate 80% of the budget for the ongoing development of popular series such as Resident Evil and Monster Hunter for various platforms. He also mentions the creation of new IPs and how the development of the Pragmat game has progressed, and then talks about the add-on packages that follow:

We will guide users' preferences and, by considering free add-on packages for Resident Evil 8 and Monster Hunter Rises, we will also create a business model for online operations.

Of course, part of what is being said Agave, which deals with Monster Hunter, is not significant because the game will receive regular updates and free content from the release, as well as a non-free developer next year. On the other hand, this story is different for the eighth edition of Resident Evil. The last and only time Capcom talked about an add-on package for this game was when it was introduced at E3.

In its latest financial report, Capcom also announced that the eighth edition of Resident Evil has sold more than 5 million units. This is an increase of 500,000 units from the 4.5 million reported in July. This figure shows the sales of the game on all platforms since its release in May.
