Resident Evil Village confirmed by Capcom, definitely has werewolves

Resident Evil Village was today confirmed by Capcom, and will definitely have those rumoured werewolves that kinda seem out of place.

You can check out how the werewolves will factor in via the trailer below. In it, there’s still a huge Resident Evil 7 vibe going on with backwater villages, mutilated livestock and cult-like imagery. There’s also at least one werewolf, alongside a section where Chris Redfield looks like he’s acting out of malice. We’re going to assume he’s shooting that corpse with silver bullets to prevent it from turning or something.

“Fear surrounds you in Resident Evil Village, unleashing a new chapter of survival horror on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC in 2021,” Capcom wrote in the trailer’s description.

In a press release, Capcom has confirmed that Resident Evil 7‘s Ethan Winter will return as the game’s protagonist alongside longtime lead Chris Redfield, also as rumoured.

“The first-person action in Resident Evil Village begins when players assume the role of a distraught and shattered Ethan as he seeks to uncover the mysterious new horrors that plague a once peaceful village,” Capcom detailed in a press release.

“Throughout this terrifying journey, players will fight for every breath as they are hunted by vicious new enemies that have infested the snow-capped locale. Channeling the capabilities of next generation consoles, the detailed realism and relentless feeling of fear will increase with each desperate battle for survival, while moments of calm will leave players wondering what new horrors await.”

We’ll have more on Resident Evil Village when it’s made available. The title heads to Windows PC, Xbox Series X and PS5 in 2021.
