A new chapter of survival horror is coming. Resident Evil Village, the eighth main issue in the Resident Evil series, is coming to PlayStation 5 in 2021!
A few years after the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 7 biohazard, Ethan Winters and his wife, Mia, seem to have finally found peace after the horrific events they experienced at the Baker family’s plantation home. Despite leaving the past behind, a surprising but familiar face returns in the form of Chris Redfield … whose shocking actions ultimately lead Ethan to find himself in a mysterious snow-covered village.
Unlike the claustrophobic corridors of the Baker mansion, Resident Evil Village offers a different kind of terror: the fear of the unknown. Each encounter is a different fight for survival, with a first-person perspective that makes things much more personal as you chart uncharted territory. There is much more to the village than what you see on the surface.
