Capcom just wrapped their special Resident Evil Showcase livestream a few moments ago. Among the big reveals this evening was a release date for Resident Evil Village.

Resident Evil Village will be released on May 7, 2021 for the Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam. These will be joined by the newly announced last-gen console versions of the game for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Those that own the game on the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will get free upgrades to the next-gen releases of the game on their respective platforms. Pre-orders for all platforms begin today.

Also revealed today was the first ever extended gameplay footage for Resident Evil Village. We also got a look at the free multiplayer Resident Evil title, Re:Verse. Re:Verse will be free to owners of Resident Evil Village.

Starting today, PlayStation 5 owners get an exclusive sneak peek at Resident Evil Village with the Maiden demo. This is a stand-alone experience that is totally separated from Resident Evil Village but still gives a look at the game's visuals and 3D audio. You are tasked with escaping in the demo using only your wits as the demo does not feature any combat.

A separate demo for all platforms will be released later this Spring.

Capcom and Ubisoft made a joint reveal for special crossover content for Tom Clancy's The Division 2. This is part of the Resident Evil 25th Anniversary celebration and will run from February 2 through February 15. Those that log into the game during that time will get a special Leon Kennedy police outfit to wear on their Agents.

Resident Evil Re:Verse will be a free multiplayer component for Resident Evil Village. This is being billed as a "thank you bonus" to fans of the franchise since its start. It makes use of comic style visuals and sees popular Resident Evil characters fighting against each other in some iconic locations from the games. Re:Verse is a 4-6 player deathmatch where each person selects a character, each with their own unique abilities. Those that are defeated in combat will respawn as a bioweapon to try to enact their revenge.

Here is a bit more about Resident Evil Village from today's presentation. We also have a ton of additional screenshots to share with you from Resident Evil Village and Re:Verse. Check out all of that below.

Resident Evil Village continues the story of Ethan Winters, first set in motion in Resident Evil™ 7 biohazard. The latest entry combines pulse-pounding action with signature survival horror gameplay synonymous with the Resident Evil series. In today’s first extensive look at gameplay, the development team revealed several new details including some features which harken back to fan-favorite elements from previous Resident Evil games. Protagonist Ethan will now be able to purchase and sell items, buy recipes for crafting, and customize weapons with a merchant dubbed “The Duke.” Using materials found throughout the game, he will be able to craft invaluable consumables needed to survive the terrors of the village. Utilizing these provisions will also involve more strategic planning, with a revised inventory system based on space management that may be familiar to series fans.

The diverse cast of enemies appearing in today’s digital program are just a few revealed from Resident Evil Village so far. Ethan will face off against many threats such as fast-moving creatures that relentlessly stalk him and Lady Dimitrescu’s mysterious daughters who can transform into swarms of insects. The game’s disparate lineup of adversaries will have their own distinctive ways of attacking, so players will need to adapt their strategies with quick decisions on when to attack, guard or flee in order to survive. Ethan has a new kick move in his arsenal to create distance from enemies and buy precious time to decide his next move.
