Resident Evil Village is certainly one of the most anticipated game releases from 2021. In our latest social survey, the eight mainline Resident Evil game was fifth with 10% of the total votes in the category.
Much has been said about Lady Dimitrescu, one of Ethan Winters’ antagonists in the game. Her vampire-like appearance and set of powers seem completely new to Resident Evil, but in an interview published in the latest Playstation Official Magazine (March 2021, issue 185), CAPCOM producer Peter Fabiano explained that everything in Resident Evil Village will eventually fit the franchise. the story. .
Dimitrescu and her three daughters all rake back to what you would expect from a vampire lore. We are not saying that this is what they are, but there is certainly something that feels supernatural about what is happening.
We do not want to ruin too much of the story, but what I can say is that the creatures all fit
within the context of the world of Resident Evil. We can assure you that Resident Evil Village takes into account the general world and history of the series.
Fabiano then went on to say that the team believes in putting the finishing touches on what will be the ‘best survival horror game’ ever released with Resident Evil Village.
Concept and planning was something that went through our developers since towards the end of Resident Evil VII: Biohazard. The team became quite attached to Ethan as a character, so we knew we wanted to continue the story arc. We wanted to continue to get the players to experience the game through the main character Ethan Winters. After all, this is a sequel to Resident Evil VII: Biohazard.
This really helped keep our vision on target. And since we are constantly sharing information across the Resident Evil team, it helped us inform ourselves about making what we consider to be the best survival horror game to date.
Last but not least, Fabiano said Resident Evil Village has received significant inspiration from Resident Evil 4, the part of the series with the highest critic (96 on Metacritic).
You will notice that we took a lot of inspiration from Resident Evil 4. The team has put a lot of effort into creating a truly authentic feeling. There are many surprises that keep you on your toes; players will find a balance between combat, exploration and puzzle.
Resident Evil Village is out May 7 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S | X.
