Resident Evil Village Will Release On Current And Last-Gen Consoles
Resident Evil fans have a lot to be excited for today thanks to the recently wrapped Resident Evil showcase. During Capcom’s presentation, a brand new cinematic trailer and separate gameplay trailer for Resident Evil Village debuted, showing off more of the trials and tribulations our perpetually unlucky protagonist Ethan Winters is put through. Poor fella. Following the new cinematic trailer for the upcoming game, it was revealed that Resident Evil Village won’t just be releasing on PC and the new generation of consoles, but also for PS4 and Xbox One.
Resident Evil Village producer Pete Fabiano took a slice of today’s showcase for himself to break down some new details about the highly anticipated survival horror game. Following the reveal of the new cinematic trailer, Fabiano confirmed which platforms the game will be available for. “When we first announced Resident Evil Village back in June, we only mentioned PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC,” Fabiano began.
I’m happy to announce we have been working hard to bring the survival horror experience onto current generations as well. Resident Evil Village will also be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, day and date with next gen.”
Going a lovely step further, it’s also revealed that the PS4 version of the game will have a free digital upgrade to PS5 in North America, while the Xbox One version provides free access to the game on Xbox Series X via Xbox Smart Delivery. Not too shabby, eh?
Resident Evil Village is slated to release for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X on May 7, 2021. The ‘Maiden’ demo releases today exclusively for the PS5.
