Resident Evil Village is a Capcom-developed and-published first-person survival horror game set in 2021. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is the sequel (2017). Players take control of Ethan Winters, who is searching for his kidnapped daughter in a mutant-infested community.
Players scavenge surroundings for things and manage resources in Village, which keeps survival horror themes from earlier Resident Evil games. It does, however, introduce more action-oriented gameplay, with increased enemy counts and a stronger focus on battle.
Resident Evil Village was revealed during the PlayStation 5 reveal event in June 2020 and published on May 7, 2021 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S, with a macOS version planned for 2022.
It garnered mostly positive reviews, with acclaim for its gameplay, setting, and variety, but criticism for its riddles, boss fights, and performance concerns on Windows; the increased emphasis on action divided opinion. Resident Evil Village was named Game of the Year at the Golden Joystick Awards at the end of the year. By May 2022, it had sold 6.1 million units.
Resident Evil Village, like its predecessor Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, is a first-person shooter. It is set in a cold Eastern European village that may be explored and is characterised as “ripped straight from the Victorian era.” It is also significantly larger and more immersive than its predecessor.
The central village’s structures and buildings can be scaled and used to battle opponents. The game is more action-oriented than Biohazard, with protagonist Ethan Winters now having better combat skills thanks to his military training.
The game’s main foes, werewolf-like Lycans, are not only agile and intelligent, but they can also wield weapons and attack in packs, forcing the player to ponder whether to utilise limited ammunition, engage in melee combat, or simply flee. Makeshift barricades can be used to ward off monsters, similar to Resident Evil 4 (2005).
The inventory management system is similar to Resident Evil 4, with a briefcase and the option to move and rotate objects for more storage. The Duke is a merchant that sells supplies, weapons, upgrades, and other stuff to players.
In addition, the players can hunt animals in the settlement and have them prepared by the Duke. Eating side dishes gives the player specific benefits, such as reducing the amount of damage absorbed while blocking. Around the settlement, treasures and artefacts can be located and sold to the Duke for money.
Explanation of The Ending
Ethan Winters perished when he arrived at the Baker house at the start of Resident Evil 7, as revealed at the end of the story. He was slain by Jack Baker and then brought back to life as a mould construct, which explains his capacity to take massive amounts of harm and reattach limbs, as well as resurrect several times from death.
The annihilation of Miranda and the Megamycete resulted in the destruction of every mould based on it, including Ethan, because he was a mould construct.
Rose is now rumored to be working with Chris and whichever organization he is now affiliated with. She possesses hidden abilities that are employed to aid in the fight against bioweapon threats.
Chris Redfield has transferred Ethan and Mia to Europe three years after Resident Evil 7 to start a fresh life with their newborn daughter Rosemary. Chris and his Hound Wolf gang assault the house one night, killing Mia and kidnapping Ethan and Rosemary.
Ethan wakes up next to the wrecked cargo truck he was riding in and sees a nearby community being attacked by Lycans, werewolf-like animals. Ethan is arrested and taken before the village priest Mother Miranda and her lords: Alcina Dimitrescu, Donna Beneviento, Salvatore Moreau, and Karl Heisenberg since he is unable to save the remaining residents.
With the help of a mysterious local merchant known as the Duke, Ethan escapes a death trap set by Heisenberg and enters Dimitrescu’s castle in search of Rosemary. Dimitrescu and her daughters are eliminated by Ethan, who discovers a flask holding Rosemary’s head.
The Duke adds that Miranda placed Rosemary’s body parts in four distinct flasks for a specific rite, and that if Ethan obtains the other flasks held by the remaining lords, she can be restored.
