The Resident Evil franchise has long been confirmed to continue. Through the Resident Evil Village series, Capcom wants to bring its players back to enjoy the horror atmosphere about the plague, the undead, and all the things that might feel disturbing when imagined in the real world.
Incidentally, this morning, the latest information regarding the eighth Resident Evil series has just arrived. From there, Capcom has announced some crucial things that players can anticipate. Including information items that have been eagerly awaited, such as the release date.
Through the 2 main videos shown, the Resident Evil Village series has a release date that will air soon on 7 May 2021. This game will not only be released for next-gen platforms such as the PS5 and Xbox Series X / S (plus PC via Steam). Because PS4 and Xbox One players also continue to share in terror on the same date with the free upgrade bonuses, they accompany the two.
While from the gameplay information, Resident Evil Village itself will really play a role in continuing the story of the Resident Evil 7 series with a setting in a rural area and castle. Still presenting a gameplay format with a first-person perspective plus your role as Ethan Winters, this new RE series will also carry an additional element or feature that can remind you a little of the Resident Evil 4 series.
Namely, what might feel the freshest is the mechanism to block or defend from enemy attacks, even to kick them to widen the distance. This series will mark the merchant feature’s return along with an inventory management system that is somewhat similar to Resident Evil 4.However, players here will no longer be served by a hooded man, but by a chubby and short man who is usually called. “Duke.”
Continuing to the story and nuance, this new Resident Evil Village trailer is Ethan’s adventure from the village to the castle, searching for the only princess reportedly kidnapped. As many fans have previously suggested, the female figure with the nickname “Vampire Lady” and her ladies-in-waiting focus on wanting to be shown in the trailer.
This “hostess” figure seems to have a name as Lady Dimitrescu with a fairly tall stature than Ethan. Meanwhile, the lady has the ability to change her form like a bat or group of insects and usually attacks Ethan by sucking blood.
Apart from dealing with Dimitrescu, there are also other enemies that Ethan seems to have to face, such as a man with black glasses who seems to have the ability to attack Ethan’s psychic and is allegedly the brother of the big mistress Dimitrescu.
With the release date falling on May 7, a demo version is currently available for PS5 players. Not only that, but the Resident Evil Village Game is reportedly also presented as a package of multiplayer PvP content entitled Resident Evil Re: Verse.
This multiplayer version brings the charm of the gameplay to shoot each other with other players as modern iconic characters that have appeared in the Resident Evil 2 and 3 Remake series and the Resident Evil 7 series.
