Capcom’s latest addition to the Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil Village is set to take off from where Resident Evil 7 ended. Since 2017, Capcom had stopped churning out new RE content to make time for the Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 remakes which were very well received by long-time fans of the series as well as series newcomers.

Resident Evil Village will bring back the series’ newfound first-person gameplay seen in Resident Evil 7, which draws inspiration from horror films like The Blair Witch Project and The Exorcist.

Release Date

Resident Evil Village has received a launch date of sometime in April 2021, according to a compiled list of leaks stemming from the ransomware attack on Capcom which took place on November 2nd. An exact launch date hasn’t yet been specified by the company.

Capcom has said that a playable demo will be available prior to launch, so we might actually get to experience an early part of the game before the full game drops in April.

Gameplay

In a press release following Sony’s PlayStation 5 reveal event on June 11th, Capcom made the following information about the game public:

In the debut cinematic trailer released today, Capcom revealed a glimpse of the evocative new setting and storyline of Resident Evil Village. Set a few years after the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 7 biohazard, the all-new storyline begins with Ethan and his wife Mia living peacefully in a new location, free from their past nightmares. Just as they are building their new life together, tragedy befalls them once again. Chris Redfield, the legendary hero from the Resident Evil™ series who made a brief appearance in Resident Evil 7 biohazard, is reacquainted with the couple and horribly disrupts their life, leaving Ethan devastated and thrown into an entirely new nightmare.

The first-person action in Resident Evil Village begins when players assume the role of a distraught and shattered Ethan as he seeks to uncover the mysterious new horrors that plague a once peaceful village. Throughout this terrifying journey, players will fight for every breath as they are hunted by vicious new enemies that have infested the snow-capped locale. Channeling the capabilities of next-generation consoles, the detailed realism and relentless feeling of fear will increase with each desperate battle for survival, while moments of calm will leave players wondering what new horrors await.

Hallucinations, occultism, insanity and not being able to trust others are huge thematics of the game. Resident Evil 7 protagonist Ethan Winters is said to return to fend off “werewolves” in a “snowy village.”

Resident Evil news site Biohazard Declassified published unconfirmed details that tie into everything we’ve heard about this next chapter.

  • Occultism will play a big role in RE8, but there won’t be any magic. Instead, there’s a cult that worships the monsters created by the Mold, infectious, fungal superorganism. Players will experience hallucinations due to the Mold being airborne.
  • The main villain will be named Alan R., a mysterious Count who lives in a castle and is an esteemed member of “The Connections,” the crime syndicate who created the Mold.
  • A lot of the game will be set outdoors and include areas named: The Castles, Caves, Forests, and Village.
  • A new playable character named Emily, a woman in her late-20s, will help Ethan on his journey.
  • Ethan is abducted from a remote life with his wife Mia and wakes up in the Village. He has to find his way back to his home while investigating the unexplained disappearances in the area.
  • Finally, there will be a host of new enemies including zombies, pale humanoids that look like Ganados, dogs, wolves, werewolves, and monsters that resemble Lickers.

Resident Evil producers, Tsuyoshi Kanda and Pete Fabiano said in an interview with Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, the upcoming installment will conclude Ethan’s storyline.

As of now, it’s confirmed that Resident Evil Village will be available at launch on PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X, and Series S, but it’s worth noting that Google has paid Capcom $10 million to bring Resident Evil Village to their game streaming platform Stadia.

Resident Evil Village will be a great title for fans of the series as well as survival-horror fanatics to pick up when the game launches in April 2021.
