Resident Evil Village directly follows Resident Evil 7: Biohazard and picks up a few years after the events of the previous game – just like in RE7 you’ll play as Ethan Winters, where you’ll navigate a mysterious and ominous gothic village after being kidnapped by fan-favourite character Chris Redfield.
The game will be in first-person view like its predecessor, and looks to take inspiration from series classic Resident Evil 4 by creating a balance of combat, puzzle-solving, and exploration.
Much like RE4, Resident Evil Village will make use of an inventory management system that will require some creative resource balancing – as you rotate, discard and combine your ammo and herbs in an effort to make your storage as efficient as possible.
Among the village and the dreaded halls of the overseeing macabre castle, there will also be a merchant who you will find in dark alleys and around shadowy corners for all your illicit items and gun-buying needs.
Included with Resident Evil Village is an online game titled Resident Evil Re:Verse – a 6-player multiplayer game where you play as beloved characters from Resident Evil‘s 25-year history and battle with huge bioweapons in chaotic deathmatches.
Resident Evil Village is set for release on May 7 and will be available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC – we’ve rounded up the best deals so you can buy it at the cheapest price.
Resident Evil Village Standard Edition
When pre-ordering Resident Evil Village, you will get bonus DLC such as the Survival Resources Pack DLC and Mr Raccoon Weapon Accessory DLC.
There are three versions of the standard edition you can buy. They all contain the same full game but have different packaging. There’s a Lenticular Sleeve version that comes with a shiny holographic slip cover and an exclusive Steel Book Edition available at Amazon.
PS4 Standard Edition
It’s worth noting that the PS4 version is eligible for a free upgrade on PS5, so buying this version also includes a PS5 version of the game.
The cheapest version at the time of writing is at Base for £46.85.
PS5 Standard Edition
Xbox Series X and Series S / Xbox One
PC – Digital Download Steam Code
The Deluxe Edition of Resident Evil Village includes Resident Evil Village, Resident Evil Re:Verse and the Trauma Pack, which includes memorabilia such as the ‘Samurai Edge’ weapon, the ‘Mr Everywhere’ accessory, a screen filter, special safe room background music and more.
Resident Evil Village Collector’s Edition
The Resident Evil Village Collector’s Edition is only available exclusively at GAME for £219.99 (although the PS5 edition is out of stock at the time of writing).
