IN A NUTSHELL:
- We have another trailer for Resident Evil Village;
- We also received information about new demo versions. There will be two limited-time demos that PlayStation console owners will be able to play on April 18 and 25;
- Users on other platforms will have to wait until May 1, when the demos will be made available to everyone for 24 hours;
- RE4 will be playable on Oculus Quest 2 goggles;
- There's also a new trailer for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness.
Last night Capcom held a presentation dedicated to the twenty-fifth anniversary of the survival horror game series Resident Evil. The highlight of the show was, of course, the latest installment of the series, namely Resident Evil Village. We received a new trailer and information about the availability of further demos.
Resident Evil Village - new demo first on PlayStation
Before the game's official release there will be two more demos (Village and Castle), and the first to gain access to them will be owners of PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles. It will happen as part of the 8 Hours in the Village event, which will take place on April 18 and 25 and will last a total of sixteen hours (eight on the first Saturday and eight on the second). This Sunday we will play the Village demo, and next week, Castle. In each of them we'll be able to spend a maximum of half an hour, so in total we'll get the opportunity to check out 60 minutes of gameplay. It's worth noting that the demos can be downloaded earlier to be ready for the start of the event.
On May 1, demo versions of both locations will be made available to owners of all target platforms (this also applies to PlayStation owners). This time we will have 24 hours to play, but we'll still be able to spend a maximum of 60 minutes in the world of Resident Evil Village (dividing this time between the Village and Castle demos, at our own discretion). It's also worth mentioning that players will be able to stream the gameplay, so probably soon the web will be full of gameplays from RE Village.
Resident Evil - return of Mercenaries mode and a new version of RE4
By the way, we also found out that Resident Evil Village will feature the Mercenaries mode known from several other installments. After unlocking it (which will require completing the main campaign), we'll be able to take on additional challenges of increasing difficulty, which will have to be completed within a certain amount of time. To make our life a little easier, we'll be able to buy weapons and other equipment from the merchant and gain special abilities - each player will have to decide for themselves what character setup and equipment works best for them.
During the event it was also announced that Resident Evil 4 will receive a port dedicated to the Oculus Quest 2 VR goggles - it will arrive later this year. We also got news that RE will be making its way (in some form) to Dead by Daylight (we'll know more about that on May 25), as well as a trailer for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, which will be available on Netflix.
