After years of waiting – and a lot of rumors -, Resident Evil Village Finally announced at a Sony presentation in June 2020, the ad was accompanied by a 3-minute video showing the voice, staging, enemies and game characters. Surprisingly, this presentation is longer than the original, and if we add the developer-provided interviews, the result is a lot of information on the following. Resident Evil.
The game is not finished yet and there is some time before it’s released. But in this article, we will review everything that is known about Resident Evil Village
Resident Evil Village Trailer
Before going into specifics, it’s a good idea to re-watch the trailer to understand what will happen in the final game. What you see is the second example of the game. (The first one is only available on YouTube) that was shown at the Tokyo Game Show in September 2020, and what we see in both videos reminds us of what happened at that time. Resident Evil 4.
About the game title …
Yes, it’s a sequel to Resident Evil 7But the name is not Resident Evil 8 Although technically it represents the eighth Canon game in the series. In any case, “8” will appear in the title consisting of “VILL” letters in the title and highlighted in a different color, not for nothing.
On the other hand, the last name village in Resident Evil Not random In an interview with Capcom Kotaku, they explained that the village (“village” in English) would resemble a character. Producers hope that players will “Remember the village” that they will have to visit, and that will be the main stage of the game.
PS4 and Xbox One versions are not confirmed.
The game began to be developed as a project between generations; That is for older consoles and for newer consoles other than PCs. However, this seems to have changed along the way, and Capcom says they have considered the possibility of making different versions of PS4 and Xbox One as long as they don’t limit the game design, and yet these versions are. Not confirmed or denied
It’s clear that the power of the console plays a big part, and even more if Capcom wants the game to have some impressive scenes. For this reason, it is important for educators to take advantage of what the PS5 and Xbox Series X have to offer in terms of power and in terms of memory speed, thus keeping the screen from loading. These traits are clearly reduced. (Or increased in case of loading times) on older consoles such as the Xbox One and PS4.
Compare with Resident Evil 7The focus on exploration is much sharper, and it still takes some computing power that the older generation could not provide. It appears to be normal that until now the game was only confirmed for PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC, and versions for older platforms have been suspended.
Direct sequel to Resident Evil 7
Capcom explained that village Is “the sequel and summary of the story of Resident Evil 7The new game story is set a few years after the previous game and the protagonist will remain Ethan Winters. (First person view camera from the previous name is also back), along with his wife, will try to rest from the incident. Resident Evil 7And as you can see in the first trailer, longtime celebrity Chris Redfield from the series appears in-game to destroy Ethan’s break, which ends up in the village in search of answers. But now little is known about what is behind the events that are about to be described.
It is unclear why Chris Redfield is part of the story or if other classic characters from the series will appear in the game.Some fans have speculated about some of the characters seen in the trailer; Especially thought that the guy with long hair and sunglasses would be Luis Sera from Resident Evil 4Even if it was pure speculation.
However, Ethan Winters and Chris Redfield are closely related to what happened in the game, and the latter may be the archenemy of the story. (In addition to looking older)
The short opening trailer features a mystery with the Umbrella logo, indicating that the organization will appear throughout the game. And what has been seen so far of the gameplay appears to be very similar. Resident Evil 7, Games that are developed on a small or medium scale with very awkward aspects.
Focus on action
Horror and action are part of its uniqueness. Resident Evil Since its inception, though, fans have been especially fond of games focused on survival and managing limited resources for a long time. villageCapcom insists that execution will be more important than in previous games. But still has to be seen Resident Evil 7 It’s a very nice mix of action and dark, so the background is pretty good. What no one wants is to keep the game in style. Resident Evil 6Which is basically a third-person shooter where all the rest of the saga’s classic mechanics are practically left behind.
Judgment from known enemies (More from below) that emphasis on action is understandable. In the trailer, there is a small part of the confrontation with human and non-human enemies, and the idea that remains is the format of Resident Evil 7 Going to keep
On the other hand, it is highly likely that there will be some sort of puzzle as seen in the video, some of which are similar to the previous games. In particular, one of them shows a winged figure that looks like the Umbrella company logo.
Enemies are not just zombies.
Speaking of enemies, a werewolf-like creature appeared in the announcement, although its origins are unknown. It could be virus related or it could be something else. In any case, these werewolves appear to be not normal enemies, and by the way they move – so fast – it’s understood that Capcom wants to orient the game into action.
More interesting is that the trailer does not appear to contain zombies. Yes, we already know that zombies don’t have to be in the file. Resident Evil To keep the game good But that question is already in the air Maybe zombies will be completely gone from the game, which might be a good idea, although there are some rumors suggesting that there will be some original enemies of the genre.
Now it’s possible that Chris Redfield is one of the villains, and that’s interesting considering Redfield is one of the iconic characters in the saga. Fighting him would definitely be a nice turnaround, although for now it’s all guesswork.
When can we play?
Resident Evil Village It is slated for sale in 2021, although no date has yet been set. According to some reports, the game is now 60% complete, so there is no reason to think the game will arrive later this year. In any case, it’s important to understand that video game development is a very complex process, so the 60% assumption is meaningless.
Additionally, making games for new hardware, as in the case of PS5 and Xbox Series X or S, is always going to be a hassle, either. The optimization process can be slower than usual, although in the case of the PS5 and Xbox Series X it can be a little more complicated than other consoles.However, the end of 2021 appears to be a reasonable day to launch a game of this caliber.
