Resident Evil village Gameplay
The storyline of the upcoming game will be picking up a few years after the incidents of the seventh part of Resident Evil, ‘Resident Evil 7: Biohazard,’ and reveal how Ethan, who is currently living peacefully with Mia, his wife at a different location, away from all the past nightmares, have his world crashing down once again. It is because of the sudden appearance of Chris Redfield, an unexpected yet familiar face, who reinforces a chain of incidents that leaves Ethan distraught. He sets off to seek answers to his shocking actions, ultimately leading him to a mysterious village. The events of the game will be taking place in Europe.
According to the official teaser, there are a number of threads quite similar to Resident Evil 7, where the storyline proceeds away from the characters and events of general Raccoon City. However, the setting, quite a lot, resembles Resident Evil 4, in a puzzling, isolated and a seemingly medieval village, though, technically speaking, it is set in the current time. Resident Evil Village, just like its predecessor, is set in the perspective of the first-person and developed on the RE Engine.
The upcoming game of the franchise offers a new look as far as the gameplay is concerned. Watch the teaser here in order to get a clearer picture of the gameplay.
