Resident Evil Village Reveal

Fellow fans and followers of Capcom’s Resident Evil series were treated to a world premiere of what’s to come. This past Thursday, Capcom showcased their next addition to the franchise with Resident Evil Village. Here’s a quick rundown of what was announced and shown.

Village takes place a few years after Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. Players take control of Ethan Winters, the protagonist from the last game, as he is once again diving into a world of horror after meeting with Chris Redfield. Ethan will once again face many challenges and frightening new foes along the way as he searches for answers.

Players will be able to take themselves to a castle run by Lady Dimitrescu, a vampire who apparently is in charge of stopping Ethan in his tracks, with her daughters and other hordes of foes. Capcom was also showing off other characters such as “the Duke”, a merchant who is willing to sell the player various weapons, upgrades, and other items to help them on their journey. Players will also meet one more character who currently remains as a mystery.

Capcom dropped details on the various editions of the game they have to offer. The Collector’s Edition of Resident Evil Village will give players a bunch of both collectibles and in game items such as a Chris Redfield statue, poster, artbook, and a SteelBook Case.

Are you one of the lucky ones who were able to obtain a PlayStation 5? Well you’re in luck as Capcom released the Resident Evil 5 Demo in the PlayStation Store called Maiden. Players have a chance to take a sneak peak into Lady Dimitrescu’s castle and escape. For all of you who don’t have a PlayStation 5, don’t worry as Capcom is soon going to release another demo later this spring.

Resident Evil Village hits the shelves for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series Console, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam) on May 7, 2021. Players who purchase the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One copies will get a chance to upgrade to the next gen consoles at no extra cost.
