In a recent interview with IGN, producer Peter Fabiano opened up about what gamers can expect when the newest Resident Evil game makes its debut next year. He told the site that longtime fans of the series can feel the familiarity of the franchise within Village, taking all of the “best elements” and bringing them to an apex with this new experience. But just because there will be familiarity doesn’t mean this game will be copy+paste.
While much of Village will pull from various aspects of Resident Evil, Fabiano was quick to assure fans that there will still be a few surprises within the new game. Without going too much into detail, the Village producer opened up about how “new technologies” of gaming will improve the Resident Evil experience in an impactful way.
“We hope fans will enjoy exploring the desolate, snowy village in which Resident Evil Village takes place, where enemies new to the franchise are waiting for them,” he told the site. “Players will once again take control of Ethan Winters, experiencing more of the story set in motion in Resident Evil 7 biohazard. New technologies are allowing us to immerse players in the game in ways we couldn’t achieve before, in what we hope will be the most pulse-pounding Resident Evil game to date.”
While the details are small (we already knew Ethan Winters was front and center), it is nice to learn at least a little bit more about the upcoming game. Additionally, Fabiano shared three new screenshots about Village, showing off werewolf glory and more scenery.
