Lady Dimitrescu Final Form: As Resident Evil Village’s Shadows of Rose DLC nears, a new way to experience the game’s already released Mercenaries mode will be available. In the upcoming Resident Evil Village Gold Edition, players will have the option of playing as Chris Redfield, Heisenburg, or the notorious Lady Dimitrescu. Lady D is well over nine feet tall, so a slight adjustment was required to make her playable.
Kento Kinoshita, director of Winters’ Expansion, revealed in an interview with Polygon that Lady D’s height was a concern when it came to letting players step into her shoes. The developers wanted players to be able to easily control Lady D, so they shrunk her to a little under nine feet to prevent them from bumping into the ceiling. Lady D’s Mercenaries stature is still much larger than any other playable character in the game, however.
“Lady Dimitrescu’s height brought up a lot of challenges during development, but in the end we were able to implement her with a giant stature, taller than any of the other characters,” says Kinoshita. “For The Mercenaries, it’s necessary that the player can control their character easily, and to make that possible we did adjust her height to a little under nine feet tall. At that height, the player just barely avoids bumping into the ceiling.”

As for what else will be included in the Gold Edition of Resident Evil Village, it will include the aforementioned Shadows of Rose DLC, which will mark the end of the Winters family saga. The DLC will be released with the Gold Edition of Resident Evil Village on October 28, although you can purchase the DLC separately from the Gold Edition. You can find Eric Switzer’s preview of the DLC here if you would like to hear what we think of it before diving in this spooky season.
