What else do we know about Resident Evil Village?

Resident Evil Village is a sequel to the 2017 game Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. Much like Resident Evil 7, Resident Evil Village has players again take on Ethan Winters' role in first-person. Ethan finds himself in a mysterious snowy European village, where werewolf-like beast creatures and what appear to be vampiric witches are all lurking. Longtime Resident Evil character Chris Redfield is also present in a big way, though the exact role he plays remains to be seen.

Resident Evil Village is currently slated to arrive on May 7, 2021. When Resident Evil Village arrives, it's coming to Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PC, PS5 and PS4. If you want a taste of how Resident Evil Village on PS5 looks and runs, there's currently a PS5-exclusive Maiden demo that's available to download and try. Our senior editor Carli Velocci shared her impressions of the demo, saying that it not only looks great but is a fantastic audio showcase.
