Resident Evil Village was finally revealed during Sony's PlayStation 5 event, and in that event, we got to see an announcement trailer. A bit later we also got a special developer message video brought to us by the producers Tsuyoshi Kanda and Pete Fabiano. In short: pretty much all the rumours were true in the end, and this was also noticed by a known industry insider Nibel on Twitter.
Resident Evil Village takes place seven years after the events of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, where we again get to play as Ethan Winters. The gameplay is said to be more action-oriented and it has a new inventory system. We also get to see Chris Redfield again, "but not in a way you'd think". From a technical standpoint the game uses the newest version of RE Engine, and (practically) doesn't have any loading times.
Resident Evil Village is coming sometime during 2021 for PC (Steam), PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. More information was promised to arrive "by the end of summer".
