Today, PlayStation Japan Play! Play! Play! organized a new live stream broadcast for the horror title Resident Evil Village, which lasted about an hour. New details were given about the story, combats, weapons, and more, with the participation of Capcom Director Morimasa Sato.
Resident Evil Village new details on the story, combat, and more
As you all know, Resident Evil Village will be the first sequel to its predecessor game Resident Evil VII. Previously, we came across different main characters alternately. This time, we will be playing the role of Ethan Winters. Naturally, we will witness the development of this character. Capcom also says that Ethan Winters is in a very different position from the previous game.
Lady Dimitrescu (or Tall Woman, as she is known in the internet world) will appear in the village in both her main stature and imposing form. Her castle was designed to show her personality, extravagance, enormousness and show-off in power and wealth.
As for the use of weapons, according to Capcom, there will be more weapons in Resident Evil Village game compared to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. Each gun’s trigger would be different from the others. It would be possible for us to choose a ready set (loadout) according to our gameplay style. Also, our merchant Duke would sell weapons upgrades, weapons, crafting recipes, and more.
According to the gameplay mechanics mentioned during the live broadcast, it would be an environment design that would include multiple paths, as well as being protected, sneaking and running when necessary. This is a feature intended for players who want to solve the scenario by going in different ways. In addition, the development team tried to examine their favorite aspects of Resident Evil 4, where the series began to slide into action, but the solid atmosphere and sense of fear continued to be kept alive, and tried to transfer this to the Resident Evil Village game.
As you know, during the presentation made in January, it was said that a new Resident Evil Village demo will be released. The first demo gave the impression of a kind of visual presentation, but the next one is said to be able to see the mechanics of the combat. The second demo will be available this spring.
Finally, the development team went to the Eastern Europe region for observation for the venue where the game will take place. Although they left in March, it was considerably cold, windy, and snowy at the time. This has greatly affected the design of the spaces we will see in the game. In addition, the light and dark areas were deliberately made. So much attention has been paid to the contrast between the pace and atmosphere of the game.
Resident Evil Village, which is in the final phase of development, will be available for PC (Steam), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on May 7, 2021. If you buy the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One version, you will be able to upgrade to the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series version for free, depending on your platform preference.
In addition, you can also check out the official PC System Requirements of RE Village, which requires an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card minimum.
