The eighth main entry in the series, Capcom announced today that Resident Evil Village will launch on May 7, 2021.
In this game, players will once again follow the story of Ethan Winters, which began in Resident Evil 7 biohazard. Fan-favorite elements from previous Resident Evil games will make their appearance, including the ability to sell and purchase items, buy recipes for crafting, and customize weapons with “The Duke.” Crafting will play a major role in the title, with provisions involving more strategic planning and a revised inventory system that revolves around space management.
Lady Dimitrescu’s mysterious daughters, which have the ability to transform into swarms of insects, will constantly pose a challenge. To take on any and all threats that may come his way, Ethan has a new kick move in his arsenal that can create distance and buy time.
