Capcom finally revealed Resident Evil Village, the eighth main installment in its popular survival horror saga. The title is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and PC in 2021, so there is still plenty of time to learn more about the game.
Shortly after the reveal, Capcom shared some additional details of the project, such as details of its narrative, its characters, its proposal, and its development. Thanks to this, we know that the game will seek a new horror standard for the saga. According to Capcom, Resident Evil Village focuses on the concept of fear and what it means for people when they face something unknown. For this reason, they seek to offer a sinister experience full of tension.
The environments, characters, and every detail of Resident Evil Village will look spectacular thanks to the potential of an updated version of the RE Engine, an engine that will take advantage of new generation of consoles.
Resident Evil Village will recover various elements from Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, such as the first-person perspective. In addition, it will star Ethan Winters, who apparently has overcome Baker’s nightmare.
However, Chris Redfield will make an unexpected appearance and take Winters on a journey of anguish and pain. Resident Evil Village will have more open environments, making exploration more relevant. Also, the title will focus a little more on the action.
“Each encounter is a personal fight for survival against terrifying foes, forcing you to keep a watchful eye on the environment and constantly looking for resources and enemies in unknown territory,” said Capcom.
Tsuyoshi Kanda and Pete Fabiano, producers of the game, shared a video where they revealed more details about the game, such as that it will not have loading times. Below you can find out all the details:
Resident Evil Village will release in 2021 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC.
