What’s the plot for Resident Evil Village?
After going through 7 sacred trials in Resident Evil, Ethan Winters puts the cover back into this new work. This time, It is the kidnapping of his daughter that will push our hero on an adventure. The great Chris Redfield, one of the main characters in the saga, appears to be involved in the affair. Ethan then goes to a remote village in Romania to find his child and lift the veil on the secrets that surround the strange place. Unfortunately, there are still a lot of gray areas in the Resident Evil Village scenario. We don’t yet know the exact role of Mother Miranda.

What do we know about the famous village?
But what is certain is that The village occupies a central place in this new plant. As the official page From Resident Evil, the villagers worship mother Miranda, who hides her face behind a crow mask. And among his orders, besides Lady Dimitrescu (who is protected by her daughters), there are three other nobles: Karl Heisenberg, an engineer who lives in his own factory and doesn’t hesitate to disfigure you with his giant iron hammer; Salvatore Moreau, a particularly disgusting creature that develops in a reservoir near an old fishing village. Beneviento wife, a mysterious woman, covered with a black veil and a long dress. The latter is constantly accompanied by Angie, her puppet. Nobles that the player obviously has to face in the different corners of the village, as IGN became known. On the edge of the castle we can also notice the presence of a factory, the Beneviento house, a fortress and a reservoir.
What is the Resident Evil Village gameplay?
In addition to its aesthetic “Village of Eastern Europe”, which is in contrast to the previous work, and its bestiary, which is based on vampires and werewolves, Village adds further new functions compared to the seventh episode. The most important is undoubtedly the return of the merchant, here called Le Duc. It will be present throughout the adventure and will allow you to buy ammunition, various items, but most importantly modifications for your weapons (pistol, shotgun) for money. An improvement system that was dissected by our colleagues at Game Informer. In Resident Evil Village it will therefore also be possible to bring animal meat to the duke. In return, he will prepare dishes for you that will serve as a temporary or even permanent improvement. Otherwise, the formula of the horror saga remains the same

Is there any content in addition to the single player campaign?
Resident Evil Village marks the return of the mercenaries, a mode that is present in other games. In this last one The player must eliminate many enemies or achieve goals within a certain time. To spice things up, the level of difficulty will increase over time and the player will have to collect orbs to give the timer time or even acquire skills. The shooting down of the attackers also saves valuable minutes. Finally, the Duke will be there so you can buy bonuses between each round. Finally, Resident Evil Village gives you access to Re: Verse, a competitive TPS starring famous characters from the series. In this multi-title Four to six players compete in deathmatch arenas, all in iconic locations like the Racoon City Police Station. Even though our preview prompts us to be careful, Re: Verse still has everything for him to turn players into bioweapons when they die. A small point that stands out, even if the whole thing remains classic.
