Putting the recent remakes to one side, the last numbered Resident Evil entry shook things up in a pretty big way. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard took the iconic horror game from the third-person perspective into the first. This is a change that may have divided fans, but ultimately RE7 was a hit (we gave it a 9). The newer, closer perspective played into the new setting well, giving players an up-close look at the disgusting Baker house and its occupants.
Announced back in June of this year, Resident Evil Village (Resident Evil 8) is sticking with this first-person change and thanks to next-gen hardware it should look very slick. Taking a peek at the new US PlayStation Store listing for RE Village, a few previously unannounced features for the PS5 version can be seen.
First of all, it’s stated in the description that the game will run at a dynamic 4K with ray tracing, meaning that we can be scared half to death in high fidelity. Fast loading is also mentioned here, with the PS5’s SSD allowing for near-instant loading. On the gameplay side of things, the listing claims that the game will take advantage of both the Dualsense’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, allowing players to “Feel the weight and pull of weapon triggers for an even more immersive experience”. Rounding out the pant-shitting new features, REV will make use of the PS5’s Tempest 3D Audio, making for a more immersive experience with sound travelling at you from all directions.
This information is only valid for the PS5 version at this stage, as none of these features has been mentioned for Xbox Series X/S, but that in no way means that some of them won’t be present. DualSense features aside, most of the graphical enhancements will likely be included in the Xbox Series X/S version, but we will just have to wait and see.
Resident Evil Village is set for release on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC in 2021.
