Resident Evil Village, or RE8 canonically, has finally gotten a release date. It’s quite a bit earlier than one might expect, given the vagueness of the release window before this. And it will be quite widely available too, which is no surprise considering we’re still in the early days of the new console generation.
It came at the end of a new trailer that was released alongside its new showcase stream. It also contained a few drops of story elements, and a sprinkle of gameplay. In it we also see some of the grunt enemy types that will be appearing in the game.
But at the very end, we get to the more relevant, juicy details of the game’s release. Resident Evil Village will be released on 7 May 2021. It will be available on PC via Steam, as well as the PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
All things considered, the release of Resident Evil Village is a little earlier than one might imagine. After all, the previous release window we got was a very vague year of 2021. The fact that it’s not getting released later is probably a good thing, since story spoilers are already floating around on the internet.
