During today’s PlayStation 5 event, Sony announced that Resident Evil 8: Village will be coming to PS5. It’s a return to the format of Resident Evil 7 with Resident Evil 4 vibes. RE8 will take place somewhere in a small European town. The gameplay trailer showed off witches, werewolves, and classic RE enemies. The game will continue on with the first-person view of its predecessor. In addition to PS5, the previous rumors we reported claim the game will support PSVR. The art style here is amazing; it’s RE7 meets RE4. We imagine the game will launch in early 2021 after the PS5 comes out this holiday.
Update Capcom Press Release:
Resident Evil Village is scheduled for a 2021 release on PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X, and Steam.
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.
