What is Resident Evil Village?

Experience survival horror like never before in the eighth major instalment in the storied Resident Evil franchise.

Set a few years after the horrifying events in the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, the all-new storyline begins with Ethan Winters and his wife Mia living peacefully in a new location, free from their past nightmares. 

Just as they are building their new life together, tragedy befalls them once again.

Why you should play Resident Evil Village

“Ethan Winters finds himself in an entirely new nightmare in Capcom’s latest instalment of the acclaimed Resident Evil franchise. Whether you’re defending against Lycans in the grim dwellings of the village or exploring the lavish Castle Dimitrescu, the meticulously designed environments immerse you in this eerie world, powered by Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine. 

Run from, hide or face off against a diverse cast of terrifying village inhabitants in dream-like – no, nightmarish – situations and fight your instincts to push through classic horror-based sequences. 

Also, be sure to check out “The Mercenaries” that unlocks once you’ve finished the campaign, a fast-paced and arcade-like game mode which challenges players to blast away enemies against the clock."

A living, breathing village

More than just a mysterious backdrop for the horrifying events that unfold in the game, the village is a character in its own right with mysteries for Ethan to uncover and terrors to escape from.
