Capcom announces Resident Evil 8 Village – the rumors surrounding the eighth chapter of the series have been confirmed. The new offshoot of the popular survival horror series was introduced as part of the current PS5 show. In the debut trailer, the manufacturer gives a first look at the game world. Resident Evil 8 Village uses the RE engine that was used in games like Resident Evil 7 and Devil May Cry 5. "Together with the technology of the next generation of consoles, RE Engine will take the survival horror experience to new levels with the most realistic and fearsome graphics from Resident Evil Village to date," Capcom promises to announce.
In the debut trailer, Capcom shows an insight into the new environment and history of Resident 8 Evil Village. The plot begins a few years after Resident Evil 7 and shows Ethan and his wife Mia living in a new location after the horrific events from their predecessor. Another tragedy strikes when they want to build their new life. Popular hero Chris Redfield returns in Resident Evil 8 "and terribly disrupts the couple's life". As Ethan, you explore the once peaceful village from a first-person perspective – and uncover the mysterious horror.
"On this terrible journey, players will fight for every breath as they are hunted down by malicious new enemies that have attacked the snowy area," said Capcom. Resident Evil 8 Village is scheduled for release in 2021 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and PC (via Steam). We have integrated the trailer below.
