About the game
Resident Evil Village is the 8th major game in the Resident Evil series. It is again powered by the RE Engine which promises super realistic graphics to further emphasize the horror survival atmosphere!
The story is set a few years after the horrible events in RE7 with Ethan and Mia living in peace and settled comfortably in a new location. Peace doesn't last for much longer though - new tragedy and danger lurks around the corner and Ethan once again has to fight for survival.
The story takes place in a village area with the settlements where the village people live, and a big Castle overshadowing the village. There will be numerous weapons and items you can use against enemies and use to your advantage outside of battle to progress in the game, which is familiar from the earlier game as well.
There's some interesting new characters to meet too - seen the buzz recently around the scary new RE enemy Lady Dimitrescu? 😅 😨 Random note - Capcom has confirmed she is 9'6" tall. That's 2.9 metres. 👀
