In what I honestly thought was a remake of Resident Evil IV, Capcom revealed Resident Evil VIII today at the PS5 Reveal Event. The game’s official name is Resident Evil Village with the Roman numeral VIII woven into the beginning of the word villiage. The new game takes place a few years after the events of Resident Evil 7 biohazard and Ethan and his wife Mia are trying to live a normal life. That is until Chris Redfield shows up and “horribly disrupts their life”, and Ethan now faced with a new nightmare.
More on Resident Evil Village:
“The first-person action in Resident Evil Village begins when players assume the role of a distraught and shattered Ethan as he seeks to uncover the mysterious new horrors that plague a once peaceful village. Throughout this terrifying journey, players will fight for every breath as they are hunted by vicious new enemies that have infested the snow-capped locale. Channeling the capabilities of next generation consoles, the detailed realism and relentless feeling of fear will increase with each desperate battle for survival, while moments of calm will leave players wondering what new horrors await.”
Capcom has been on a roll since the release of Resident Evil 7 with stellar remakes of both Resident Evil 2 and 3 and let’s not forget Devil May Cry V. RE8 looks like it will be another hit for the companythat introduced so many of us to Survival Horror. Resident Evil Village is set to release on the PlayStation 5 in 2021.
