Resident Evil Village is set to release for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on May 7, 2021. If you buy the PS4 or Xbox One version, the next-gen upgrade is free within the same console family. You can preorder the game now.
Resident Evil Village is a sequel to Resident Evil 7. Once again, you play as Ethan Winters, a poor unfortunate soul who arrives at a castle to rescue his daughter only to find a new group of vicious, supernatural characters who are eager to torture and kill him. This includes the tall vampire lady who became a meme the moment she made her debut, as well as her daughters, who are apparently made of bugs that can… go under your skin?
Like RE7, Village is a first-person shooter, but this time they’ve added a blocking mechanic that will play a key role in combat. They’ve also added crafting and an RE4-like inventory system. PlayStation 5 owners can download a demo now, and a different demo is planned later for the previous-gen consoles.
