Capcom Invites Players to Resident Evil Village in New Showcase

You’re free to stay as long as you’d like… if you can survive


Resident Evil Village


If you’re a fan of Resident Evil then this week must have been an absolute delight for you, as Capcom has announced its next upcoming game in the series, Resident Evil Village.

The eighth main entry in the RE series, Resident Evil Village continues the story of Ethan Winters, which was first set into motion in Resident Evil 7 biohazard, and promises to deliver a combination of pulse-pounding action and that classic survival-horror gameplay that series fans have come to know and love.

The recently revealed showcase trailer for Resident Evil Village shows off several different mechanics, such as the ability to purchase and sell items, purchase recipes and craft items, and customize weapons thanks to the help of a merchant dubbed “The Duke.” Also unveiled was a cast of horrifying, and, if you ask certain parts of the internet, *ahem* gratifying enemies which Ethan will have to fend off using whatever weapons he happens to happen onhand. And, if players need to put a bit of distance between themselves and their fearsome foes, they can utilize Ethan’s new kick move in order to do so.

As previously reported, those lucky enough to own a PS5 can now get a sneak peek of what’s in store for them by downloading the Maiden demo. Those owning an Xbox Series X|S and/or PC will also get to play the demo at some point as well, but we’re not sure just when that will be.



Resident Evil Village is slated to release on May 7 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. And for those who want to jump in on day 1 and are planning to upgrade their PlayStation 4 or Xbox One but can’t do so currently, don’t worry; you can upgrade your version of the game for free when you finally do. So, what are your thoughts on Resident Evil Village so far? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
