What Kind of Resident Evil Village News to Expect
As we shared above, you can expect a new trailer, a first-look at gameplay, a guided tour of the village, along with other news and announcements about Resident Evil Village.
Resident Evil Village (also known as Resident Evil 8) was revealed back in June during the PS5 game reveal event, and was also confirmed for Xbox Series X and PC via Steam.
Details about a deluxe edition and a mode called Re:Verse for Resident Evil Village were leaked via Humble Bundle, but it’s unclear if we’ll hear more about this during the showcase.
So far we know Resident Evil 8 follows RE7’s Ethan Winters and takes place in a desolate, snowy village crawling with all sorts of monsters, including zombies, werewolves, witches, and what the internet refers to as the “tall vampire lady” featured in the video of the showcase’s announcement tweet.During a presentation at Tokyo Game Show, director Morimasa Sato emphasized Village will focus more on player freedom and exploration, describing it as a “horror movie you can play.”
Producer Peter Fabiano recently told IGN Resident Evil Village is an “accumulation of all the best elements of Resident Evil games from the past 25 years,” and that there will be “plenty of puzzles to solve and mysteries to unfold.”
With a trailer, gameplay, and a guided tour of the village on the table for the showcase, it’s possible we’ll get to see some, if not, all of that in action today.
