The PlayStation 5 Showcase has just been concluded and fans are still hungover by several mesmerizing trailers dropped during the event. One of the videos presented in the showcase is Capcom’s second trailer for the upcoming Resident Evil 8 Village which is coming to the next-gen consoles and the PC.
Resident Evil 8 Village is a survival-horror game that was first announced during Sony’s PlayStation 5 reveal event last July. During that time, the game was only announced to come to the PlayStation 5 but now, Capcom confirmed that the Resident Evil 8 Village will also be available on Microsoft’s next-gen consoles and the PC. However, there is still no official news of the game coming to the current-gen consoles.
Sadly, the trailer did not reveal an exact release date for the game and only showed that it will come sometime in 2021. Luckily, if the rumors are true, the game might hit the store shelves by the first half of next year. For the trailer, it was mostly another update to the game’s theme and story.
Resident Evil 8 Village is the 10th main installment in the Resident Evil franchise and is a direct sequel to 2017’s Resident Evil 7 Biohazard. As fans may remember, Resident Evil 7 debuted the latest RE Engine which took the franchise from a third-person POV to a first-person POV. For Resident Evil 8 Village, it will operate on the same engine and will also feature a first-person POV.
