The Resident Evil Village Winters’ Expansion is bringing back a feature that the main series had previously been moving away from: a third-person perspective.

This guide will demonstrate how to start third-person mode in Resident Evil Village, so you can experience the latest story in the Resident Evil videogame mythos from a new perspective.
