According to new information that came in this weekend about the Resident Evil Village revealed an eye catching details.

Last week, plenty of internal Capcom data was leaked online, and as tweeted by leaker @pokeprotos, this data also contains additional details about Capcom’s next RE installment, Resident Evil Village, including its release frame, DLC, pre-order benefits, multiplayer mode, and a possible demo ahead of the game’s release.

We already knew that Village is slated for a release next year, but based on the classified documents that the leaker shared, we might now have a more accurate release frame (if it still holds up in these uncertain times). According to the documents, RE: Village is slated for a release in late April 2021 with pre-orders kicking off around January 2021. A game demo is mentioned to be released 3 weeks before the game’s release.

More to that the leaked files mention various versions of the title, including a ‘normal’ edition, a digital deluxe edition that includes extra DLC, and a Collector’s Edition. An ‘E-Capcom’ version for PS4/PS5 has also been mentioned, but this version will likely only be available in Japan.

Resident Evil Village New Playtest Report Details New Enemies, Location and More; Game Runs Great On PS4 Pro (Rumor)

A new information on Resident Evil Village playable characters, enemies and more surfaced online via a brand new playtest report.

This new report, posted on Biohazard Cast, details a demo version that underwent playtesting before the release of the Resident Evil 3 remake earlier this year. This demo was set inside a cavern, and testers were controlling a female character.

According to our source, this test my test started in a very dark cave similar to the final caves of Resident Evil 7 and they were controlling a female character with a kerosene lantern. We are assuming this is the same younger female that can be seen in the Resident Evil Village reveal trailer as she is carrying a lantern.

In this segment, the woman carried no weapons of any type and the objective was to escape the caves. Our source also indicated they were under the impression that she was very distressed and looking for something. They also heavily reiterated the fact of the caves being dark and mentioned they had to have a representative help them adjust the brightness several times.

This cave featured horned, bipedal enemies called Strigoi and another one of the witches reported in previous Resident Evil Village leaks.

These new [enemies] carried swords and also had the ability to grab and bite the player as well. Our source compared the look of these enemies to that of Krampus, the evil creature that punishes children at Christmas.

While hiding in the caves our source says they came across a file that called these new creatures “Strigoi”, which interestingly enough have a base in Romanian folklore, which is fitting to the aesthetic we’ve seen thus far with Resident Evil Village.

There apparently was another one of the “witches” in the caves as well that seemed to be able to control the Strigoi going by the name of “Scarlett”.

Interestingly enough, this Resident Evil Village demo ran on PlayStation 4 Pro. The report suggests that it ran smoothly on the current-gen console, with no performance drops.

They did go on to mention that Resident Evil Village played very smooth on the Playstation 4 Pro they tested and there was no visible lose in FPS and the movement was very fluid.

Resident Evil Village is coming on PC and consoles in 2021.

Resident Evil Village Next Trailer Will Be Released In August (Rumor)

Resident Evil Village is reportedly going to get another trailer next month. 
According to a reputable leaker Dusk Golem, he revealed that the new trailer for the next entry in the survival-horror series will be shared in August, alongside some other things.

I feel like this shouldn’t be very surprising as Capcom already has said there’d be more RE8 stuff in August, but yes there will be a new RE8 trailer next month, along with some other things. https://t.co/0P1z513Hez
