During the digital game showcase at the live event, Capcom revealed some details about its highly anticipated entry “Resident Evil Village” in the Resident Evil franchise. They also announced a new multiplayer game “Resident Evil Re:Verse” where players can battle each other in the unique death math battles set across iconic game locations.
The Resident Evil Village will be launching on May 7, 2021, on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One with backward compatibility, as well as on PS4, and PS5. The game is now available to Pre-order via Microsoft Store.
LIMITED DEAL: The RESIDENT EVIL 7 biohazard Gold Edition is now available with a 50% discount (save $20) for a limited time, with only 3-days left during this post published.
“In addition to the release date announcement, Capcom also shared significant gameplay footage that featured Resident Evil 7 biohazard’s Ethan Winters, who returns as the primary protagonist of Resident Evil Village. Promising pulse-pounding action combined with Resident Evil’s signature survival horror gameplay, the development team also shared new details from the upcoming game that will call back to fan-favorite elements from prior Resident Evil games.”
“New for Ethan will be the ability to purchase and sell items, buy recipes for crafting, and customize weapons thanks to a merchant known only as The Duke. Think of him as your in-game gunsmith who, by utilizing resources that you find throughout the game, provides you with recipes for you to craft consumables and other provisions to help you survive the dreaded village.”
“Lady Dimitrescu (aka Tall Vampire Lady), whose enigmatic daughters can turn into insect swarms, was one of the most talked-about teases going into today’s Resident Evil news (no thanks). It remains to be seen if those characters can play a part in Resident Evil Village’s larger story. Like other entries in the series, we expect to come face to face with other special enemies who will each have their own distinctive and terrifying ways of assaulting us. Just carry it on!”
As a celebration of the Resident Evil franchise Resident Evil Re:Verse will be included with a purchase of Resident Evil Village. “This mode will set popular Resident Evil characters against each other in unique four to six-player deathmatch battles set across iconic game locations. Each character will have their owns skills for gamers to master, like playing as a bioweapon when they respawn to unleash vengeance upon other players. Resident Evil Re:Verse will be available at some point after the release of Resident Evil Village.”
