According to an insider who is considered a reliable source, Resident Evil Village will offer you the opportunity to unlock an optional difficult level or difficulty mode. Here various random factors should make life difficult for you.
In the past, most titles of the Resident Evil series liked to stand out for their replayability. As the usually well-informed insider Dusk Golem would like us to know, Resident Evil Village, which will be released in a few weeks, will be no exception.
According to the insider Dusk golem, in Resident Evil Village you will be able to unlock an optional level of difficulty mode after the campaign has ended, which is not only much crisper than its standard counterpart. The insider has termed the difficulty mode as “Ethan Must Die 2.0” out of sarcasm, which will not be the actual name, considering the Ethan Must Die minigame released as part of the “Banned Footage Vol. 1” DLC in Resident Evil 7.
In addition, there is talk of smaller rogue-lite elements, which can be traced back to the fact that the distribution of enemies and objects in the game world takes place on a random basis, which is supposed to make Resident Evil Village a little more open than it is in the normal campaign, which is the case. In any case, the information from Dusk Golem has not yet been officially confirmed.
Resident Evil: Village will be released on May 7, 2021, for the PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. This week, Capcom will provide us with further details and impressions of the latest title of the horror series as part of a new showcase.
In recent news, the same insider claims that Resident Evil 9 could be the last numbered entry in the Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil Village series.
(2/2) an expansive difficulty mode in the game. I don't know the full details/final result of the mode, I feel they may talk about it before release, but I'm aware it makes the game more open, randomizes enemy & item placement, & scaled to be extremely difficult.
