Resident Evil Village Graphics Modes Confirmed

If you're playing on PS5 or Xbox Series X, you'll be able to enjoy Village in 4K at 60 frames-per-second, while the Xbox Series S offers 45 FPS at 1440p.

Comparatively, PS4 Pro and Xbox One X can run the game at 60 FPS at 1080p, or 30 FPS at 4K. The base PS4 runs the game at 45 FPS at 900p, while the base Xbox One drops to 30 FPS at the same framerate.

Ray-tracing, however, is likely to be somewhat of a game-changer for the franchise, and next-gen consoles can expect the frame rates to take a bit of a hit across the board.

PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X users will get 45 FPS at 4K with it turned on, while the Series S will offer 30 FPS at 1440p.

Oh, and if you're wondering, Google Stadia will run the game at 60 FPS, 1080P, or 60 FPS at upscaled 4K.

That's a lot to take in, so here's a handy chart:

Resident Evil Village will run on plenty of platforms, with varying resolutions and framerates to match
