At today’s Resident Evil Showcase digital event, Capcom revealed new details about its long-awaited survival horror title Resident Evil 8Capcom confirmed that Resident Evil Village will be available worldwide on May 7, 2021 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S, and Steam, along with recently revealed PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platform options.

Resident Evil 8 will be eligible to upgrade from PlayStation 4 to the digital version of PlayStation 5 and will support Smart Delivery for Xbox Series X | S and Xbox One consoles. New details were also shared with a new gameplay trailer and video, along with the Announcement of the Resident Evil multiplayer game, Re: Verse, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the franchise.

Starting today, pre-orders begin and PlayStation 5 owners can get a glimpse of the mysterious and beautiful Dimitrescu Castle in Resident Evil Village with the Maiden indie demo.

Resident Evil 8 continues the story of Ethan Winters, who first entered the franchise in Resident Evil 7 biohazard. The latest entry combines fast-paced action with the signature survival horror gameplay from the Resident Evil series. In today’s first extensive look at the game, the development team revealed several new details, including some features that date back to fan-favorite items from previous Resident Evil games. The protagonist Ethan will now be able to buy and sell items, purchase recipes to craft, and customize weapons with a merchant named “The Duke.” With the materials you find throughout the game, you can craft invaluable consumables needed to survive the terrors of the village.

Starting today, PlayStation 5 owners can get an exclusive preview of the Resident Evil Village castle area with the Maiden demo. This experience is standalone, but shows the stunning visuals and 3D audio that await in the main game. As the Maiden, players will have to rely solely on their wits to escape in this stressful demonstration, as they will have no way to fight or defend themselves. A new, separate demo for all platforms will be available later this spring (in the Northern Hemisphere).

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Resident Evil franchise, Capcom announced that Resident Evil Village will include access to a free multiplayer experience titled Resident Evil Re: Verse coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S players can access the game through backward compatibility.
