Resident Evil VillageIts DLC, The Winter’s Expansion, adds a brand new story campaign featuring Rose along with some new mercenary levels. In addition to the new Mercenary levels, there are new playable characters for Mercenaries, including Chris Redfield, Karl Heisenberg, and everyone’s favorite giant vampire, Lady Dimitrescu. However, not all of these new characters are immediately available, as you will need to unlock some of them by completing challenges in the new mercenary levels.
How to Unlock Lady Dimitrescu and Karl Heisenberg
There are six new Mercenary levels and you’ll need to complete them all before you can play Lady Dimitrescu or Karl Heisenberg.
The unlocking conditions are:
- Heisenberg: Rank A or above in all normal levels
- Lady Dimitrescu: Reach S rank or higher in Bloody River
The Bloody River level is the last of the six new levels, and you’ll need to achieve at least an A Rank in each to unlock the next. While that may sound daunting, Chris Redfield is playable right from the first DLC Mercenaries level, and he’s armed with a powerful assault rifle and pistol. Using Chris Redfield instead of Ethan Winters will make it easier for you to get an A-Rank to move on to the next level. Each new character has their own unique weapon and challenges to unlock upgrades for them.
