Resident Evil Village can also be released on current generation consoles


Resident Evil Village – which is Resident Evil 8 – looks like it can also be released on current generation consoles. This despite the game was initially revealed as a game for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S. Speaking today during a Tokyo Games Show presentation, producer Tsuyoshi Kanda said Capcom “would do our best” to create versions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as well.

“While Resident Evil Village is being developed specifically for next generation consoles and PC, we are looking to offer the experience on Xbox One and PS4 as well,” said Kanda.

“We are investigating this, but we cannot make any promises. However, we will do our best to create a first-rate survival horror experience on today’s generation consoles. ”

Village is set to take place in 2021, and will resume the series’ history a few years after the end of Resident Evil 7. Expect protagonist Ethan to return alongside Chris Redfield in a story set in Europe with some real Resident Evil 4 vibes. .

The first person view of Resi 7 maintained in Resi 8 is a surprise, several years after the strange origins of the first virtual reality.

The change to the first person was a major change for the series, and Capcom avoided implementing it in its recent Resident Evil remakes.

But it also makes sense as a way of clearly delineating the two branches of the series that Capcom is currently developing, as remakes like Resi 2 and 3 revive the series’ origins for nostalgic fans, while 7 and 8 offer a more experimental future.

The above report in Resi 8 also mentions the return of the Resi 7 protagonist Ethan and the classic Resi character Chris Redfield (none of which will be a surprise for fans).

It also suggests that we will see werewolf-like enemies, real zombies and a female appearance that chases you through castle and village environments.

Capcom is currently working on several Resident Evil projects – not least the Resident Evil 3 Remake, due out in April, and Resident Evil: Resistance, which will be released as the multiplayer part of that game.
