At the PlayStation 5 showcase event, Capcom revealed a new trailer for the eighth game in the Resident Evil series, Resident Evil: Village. This spooky new trailer puts a center on the haunting story that the game is going to tell, and it looks fabulous!
The first-person game will be based on Ethan Winters as he tries to survive a cold, severe outbreak a few years after the events of the last game. Resident Evil Village will come with more combat and exploration elements than Resident Evil 7: Biohazard according to Capcom, which was more like a survival horror game.
Here’s the official description from Capcom:
“Prior to the events of Resident Evil Village, Ethan Winters received a mysterious email from Mia, his wife, who had been missing for a few years. Without the slightest hint of hesitation, Ethan made his way to Dulvey, Louisiana to search for Mia’s whereabouts… and was led straight to the mansion of the twisted Baker family as a result. Resident Evil 7 Biohazard set the stage for a new generation of survival horror as seen directly through Ethan’s eyes, making the struggle for survival through a house of nightmares that much more personal. While Ethan and Mia were ultimately able to escape and create a new, peaceful life together, a new tragedy is about to unfold… one that will take a distraught Ethan to a mystifying village in search of answers to painful questions.”
The game will be released in 2021 on PlayStation 5, PC, and Xbox Series X.
