RE 8 or Resident Evil Village is scheduled for a May 7 release. It would come to both the current and next-gen console along with PC. In this article, we would list out everything you need to know about the upcoming chapter of the iconic horror series.

1 - About RE 8's settings

It is going to be a direct sequel to Resident Evil 7, in both story and gameplay. The game is set a few years after 7, with Ethan Winters, the protagonist of RE 7 going to a mysterious village in Europe in search of answers for a mystery.

Below is the latest trailer for RE 8. It provides a glimpse of the game's main female antagonists (giant, creepy vampire woman) as well as a closer look at some of the spectacular, unnerving environments players will have to tentatively creep through.

2 - About RE 8's Gameplay

It would have pretty much the same gameplay as RE 7, with the protagonist fights against mobs using his various weapons while avoiding the bosses to get to the objective. Unlike the usual "zombie" schtick, RE 8 is going to be about Vampires, Werewolves and Witches.

3 - Playable Demo Resident Evil: Maiden

Capcom has just released a PlayStation exclusive demo for RE 8 named 'Maiden'. It showcases the escape attempt of a girl before the story actually starts. Below is the full playthrough of the demo.

4 - Resident Evil Re:Verse

Another attempt by Capcom for a Resident Evil multiplayer game. It has a comic-book style look and features 6 person deathmatches. Players who purchase RE8 would get Re:Verse for free. Overall, it is likely that this game would fail just like the previous REsistance multiplayer.
