Resident Evil Village: Release Date, Pre-Order, Collector's Edition, Demo And Everything You Need To Know For Xbox One, PS4 And PC

Resident Evil 8 is known as Resident Evil: Village - here's all we know!

Resident Evil 3 Remake may have only just launched, but Resident Evil: Village will be the next instalment in the historic franchise.

Her'es everything we know!

Be sure to watch our wide variety of PS5 news here!

What Is It?

Resident Evil has primarily been about zombies and the shadowy Umbrella Corporation, but Resident Evil 7 sidestepped that narrative for the most part – and Resident Evil: Village will do the same.

Looking to return to the first-person view, it'll feature werewolves and all sorts of other ghouls - a big departure.

Fabled horror game leaker Dusk Golem has already reported that the game will be very different from what the franchise has seen so far, with their info stating hallucinations, occultism, and insanity could be a big part of how the game plays.

Release Date and Platforms

With the game being announced at the PlayStation 5 reveal event, we know it'll come to Sony's system at the very least.

We'd expect to see it on Xbox Series X, too, so you can scare your new consoles silly.

On top of this, Capcom has confirmed they are looking into releasing the game on the past generation of consoles as well.

This would mean the game would also be released onto PS4 and Xbox One.

Trailer and Gameplay

Sony showed a second trailer for Resident Evil Village during its September 16 PlayStation 5 showcase.

Check out this incredible reveal.

 

Collector's Edition and Pre-Order Bonuses

Expect something gruesome to be included, alongside the usual costume packs.

Demo

In recent years, Capcom has readily embraced demos. Both Resi 2 and 3's remakes have one (albeit the former had a time limit), and Resident Evil 7 offered two teasers.

With the rumours of an entirely fresh direction, we fully expect Capcom to want to get fans on board as early as possible – what better way to do that than by putting the game in players' hands?
