    How far would you go to save someone you love?

    Resident Evil 8: Village is coming next week and there's a LOT of excitement and buzz going on for this one. Let me know in the comments if you've been waiting for this one? I've seen a few of you mention the game so far here on the community​​​​​​​!

    NOTE / WARNING: If you haven't finished Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, do it fast now before reading further, or be spoiled (to some degree at least)!! 😄👀

    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. 👀

    Hi @Marion
    I tried already a short time on the PS4 the demo.

    Ohh yeah I'm actually tempted myself as I don't have the Stadia Controller yet. It's been a while since I've played with a controller properly. I'll check it out thanks for the reminder @Sander140 !
    @Saku Oh yes I remember you mentioned you liked how the beginning of the game looks. I already liked the graphics and gameplay in RE7 so excited to see how RE8 can be even better.

    ​​​​​​​Quick question if anyone knows more than me: I have a Samsung smart TV - I wonder if I could nowadays play Stadia games on it through Chromecast using the Stadia controller? I have my PC of course but trying it on the bigger TV screen could be fun!

    Of course you can enjoy to play directly on your TV with the Chromecast ULTRA, Only at this time ( the new Chromecast with Google TV + remote , it is not yet compatible Stadia ).
    I open the application Stadia on my phone and launch the game to the Chromecast Ultra connected on TV and using the Stadia controller - All connected to your WIFI.
