Capcom's upcoming horror title Resident Evil Village may have one big lady among its villains, but the game's file size is pretty modest - it'll take up around 50GB on your disk.

Granted, calling 50 gigs decent could've gotten me crucified just a few years ago, but we've all seen installation sizes explode lately, and next-gen is likely to take it to another level. All it takes is a single look at a Call of Duty installation and Resident Evil Village will snap into "decent" territory. 

Either way, Resident Evil Village weighs in at exactly 50.2GB, 15GB of which is reserved for RE: Verse, Capcom's foray into online multiplayer with the iconic horror franchise. Which, by the way, looks mighty fine .

"Set a few years after the horrifying events in the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 7 biohazard, the all-new storyline begins with Ethan Winters and his wife Mia living peacefully in a new location, free from their past nightmares. Just as they are building their new life together, tragedy befalls them once again", says the blurb over at Microsoft Store.

Resident Evil Village launches on May 7, 2021, for PC and all the current and next-gen consoles, and the game has recently been spotted in AMD's showcase for Radeon RX 6700 XT .  

Capcom's horror title will run ray tracing and the rest of AMD"s FidelityFX set of techs, which should help make it a proper eye candy.

Castle Dimitrescu certainly looked appealing on AMD's shots, and ray tracing managed that last piece of realism, but we all know it's Resident Evil Village's cast that will make the biggest impression, no pun intended. 

You can find the listing over at Microsoft Store .
