About Resident Evil Village
Resident Evil Village continues the story of Ethan Winters, who first appeared in Resident Evil ™ 7 biohazard. The latest installment combines fast-paced action with characteristic survival horror gameplay from the Resident Evil saga. In the first look at the gameplay, the development team has revealed several new details, including some features that are reminiscent of fan favorites from previous games in the Resident Evil series.
The protagonist Ethan will now be able to acquire and sell items, buy recipes to create tools and customize weapons with a merchant nicknamed “The Duke.” Using the materials found throughout the game, you can craft priceless consumables needed to survive the terrors of the village. Utilizing these provisions will also involve more strategic planning with a revised inventory system based on space management that may be familiar to fans of the series.
The diverse cast of enemies that have appeared on today’s digital show are just a few of those revealed so far from Resident Evil Village. Ethan will face many threats, such as creatures that move fast and stalk him relentlessly, or the mysterious daughters of Lady Dimitrescu that can transform into swarms of insects. The game’s disparity of adversaries will have their own ways of attacking, so players will have to adapt their strategies with quick decisions about when to attack, protect, or flee in order to survive. Ethan has a new kick move in his arsenal to distance himself from enemies and buy precious time to decide his next move.
25th anniversary celebrations
Starting today, PlayStation 5 users can take a look at the Castle area of Resident Evil Village with the Maiden demo. This game experience is different from the final game, but it shows the amazing visuals and 3D audio that can be seen in the main installment.

A new standalone demo for all platforms will be available later this spring.
As part of the 25th anniversary celebrations for the Resident Evil E franchise that will begin in March 2021, Capcom has announced that Resident Evil Village will include access to a free multiplayer experience titled Resident Evil Re: Verse coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
