Resident Evil Village Overview
Resident Evil Village for PS5 takes place a few years after the events of Resident Evil 7 biohazard. In which protagonist Ethan Winters travelled to Louisiana to search for his missing wife, Mia. Resident Evil Village sees the reunited Mia and Ethan living happily together and putting their shared nightmares of the Baker’s plantation house behind them.
Finally able to move on from those horrifying events, Ethan’s world suddenly comes crashing down once again when Chris Redfield, an unexpected yet familiar face makes an appearance. Chris Redfield’s appearance sets off a chain of events that sees a distraught Ethan seeking answers to Chris’s shocking actions. And ultimately finding him in a mysterious village.
Unlike the cramped corridors of the Baker mansion in Resident Evil 7, the fear of dark corners has been replaced with the anxiety of the unknown, as Ethan searches for answers within decrepit buildings among snow-covered trees.
Resident Evil Village is developed using the same game engine as Resident Evil 7 and will also be set in the first-person perspective. The game is due for release on PS5 sometime in 2021.
