The marketing campaign for Resident Evil Village is in full swing, so low and behold, we have some tasty new details. The most notable being that Lady Dimitrescu will stalk players throughout the game, much akin to Mr X from Resident Evil 2 Remake.
A whole bunch of previews from the latest entry have gone live and all seem to say the same thing - the game is terrifying. General consensus seems to be that people can't wait to get their hands on the full release, and with it being less than three weeks away, more information has dropped for us all to lap up.
GamesRadar spoke about the game's combat and how it will evolve from tight, small spaces, to larger, open firefights. But also that Lady Dimitrescu fans will be happy with her appearance in the game.
"Lady Dimitrescu will be everything you are hoping for too, languidly walk-chasing you – much like Jack did throughout Resident Evil 7 – shouting 'Man-thing!' contemptuously as she bends double through doorways. And then there are the werewolves. Werewolves everywhere. Called Lycans, they pour from the rooftops, constantly pushing combat from tight panicky spaces one minute to wide open areas the next as you run and fight."
If you were a fan of the direction Capcom took with Resident Evil VII, then many have said Village feels like an evolution of that formula so far, but sprinkled with some of what made Resident Evil 4 so beloved. GameSpot mentioned how Village plays into the feeling of being overwhelmed in Resident Evil 4, so if you were a fan of that, you're going to enjoy what this has to offer.
"Essentially, if you can imagine the first-person intensity of Resident Evil 7, combined with the higher action and feeling of being overwhelmed of Resident Evil 4, you'll have a pretty good idea of what to expect."
So it seems like Resident Evil Village is going to continue the streak of solid games in the series. When Resident Evil 6 released, things seemed rocky, but following the release of Resident Evil VII, the team has continuously proved they know how to create good horror experiences.
If you want to try the game ahead of launch, a time limited demo will be available for just 24 hours early next month, so be sure to check that out if you're on the fence.
