Capcom to Release ‘Resident Evil Village’ For All Gaming Platforms on May 7th

Gamers looking for their undead-slaughtering fix have something new to look forward to.  Capcom announced in an online event on Thursday that the eighth installment of the Resident Evil franchise, titled Resident Evil Village, will drop on May 7th of this year.  The game will be playable on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC with backwards compatibility on the PS4 and Xbox One.

While the full version is not available until May, a demo of the game is available right now for all PS5 users.  Capcom proclaimed that Resident Evil Village “will be eligible to upgrade from PlayStation 4 to the digital PlayStation 5 version and will support Smart Delivery for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles.”  The game will be a “first-person survival horror experience,” similar to the last installment.  Capcom also unleashed the newest trailer, which can be viewed below.

In addition to Village, the Japanese video game developer and publisher also unveiled Re:Verse, a multi-player game featuring all major characters from the Resident Evil franchise.  Re:Verse is available at no additional cost to anybody that purchases Village.

The Resident Evil universe is hitting a high point once again.  The most recent gaming installments have been praised for focusing more on the horror aspect of the property.  And there is also recent news of a Resident Evil live-action series currently in development for streaming giant Netflix (which we covered here.)

Stay tuned to HNN for more information on the latest Resident Evil game as it breaks!
