Capcom has announced a virtual showcase for Resident Evil Village, which will provide a “guided tour” of the game. This does include a first look at Village’s gameplay.
There will also be a new trailer and “lots more” news about the Resident Evil franchise, not just Resident Evil Village. The event is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. PT/ 5:00 p.m. ET/ 10:00 p.m. GMT on January 21st. It will be hosted by Brittney Brombacher of the What’s Good Games podcast series.
January 21st is the same day Bethesda had originally planned to host its own reveal event for The Elder Scrolls Online. However, they delayed this event as to not step on the toes of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.
Resident Evil Village is a direct follow-up to Resident Evil 7. It is expected to arrive to the PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC sometime this year. According to a Tokyo Game Show stream, Capcom is also working on bringing Resident Evil Village to PS4 and Xbox One, but hasn’t made any promises.
