During the PlayStation 5 showcase event yesterday, Capcom shared a new trailer for the eighth game in the Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil: Village. This creepy new trailer puts a focus on the haunting story that the game is going to tell, and it looks fantastic!
I’ve been a fan of the Resident Evil franchise from the very beginning. I’ve played all the games, and I’m pretty stoked about this one! I love the unnerving vibe that the trailer gives off.
The first-person game follows Ethan Winters as he tries to survive a cold, bleak outbreak a few years after the events of the previous game. Capcom has said Resident Evil Village will also have more combat and exploration than Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, which was more of a survival horror game. Chris Redfield has also returned.
Here’s the official description from Capcom:
“Prior to the events of Resident Evil Village, Ethan Winters received a mysterious email from Mia, his wife, who had been missing for a few years. Without the slightest hint of hesitation, Ethan made his way to Dulvey, Louisiana to search for Mia’s whereabouts… and was led straight to the mansion of the twisted Baker family as a result. Resident Evil 7 Biohazard set the stage for a new generation of survival horror as seen directly through Ethan’s eyes, making the struggle for survival through a house of nightmares that much more personal. While Ethan and Mia were ultimately able to escape and create a new, peaceful life together, a new tragedy is about to unfold… one that will take a distraught Ethan to a mystifying village in search of answers to painful questions.”
The game is set to be released in 2021 for PlayStation 5, PC, and Xbox Series X.
