Capcom have finally shown Resident Evil Village in all its glory, and they've unloaded a bunch of other info as well, such as the May 7, 2021, launch date.

First and foremost - Resident Evil Village has not been announced for PlayStation 4 but Capcom confirmed that PS5 and PS4 versions are launching on the same day. 

PlayStation 5 demo of Resident Evil Village takes players on a more peaceful tour of the castle. You'll still be looking for a way out, but taking in the scenery is encouraged. Oh, and the rest of the platforms will be getting the demo sometime in spring.

As for the game, players are once again assuming the role of Ethan Winters, who's looking for his kidnapped daughter in a place where you're not expecting to find a soul. Well, not alive at least. 

The camera is, of course, the first-person one, rather than the improved tanky controls of Resident Evil 2 for instance. Resident Evil Village producer Peter Fabiano stressed that this is better for the world detail Capcom meticulously strived for in making the game.

Resident Evil Village's inventory will now allow for crafting basic items, classic style, which is always a plus.

There are some wonderfully colourful characters in Resident Evil Village, and the lady you're wondering about is called Lady Dimitrescu. For now, Capcom prefer to keep the identities of Dimitrescu and her shifty associates secret, but they promised more info soon.

Last but not least is RE: Verse, Capcom's multiplayer attempt to bring players into the world of Resident Evil. The game will be free to everyone who buys Village, preorder or not, and we can't wait to see how the dev envisioned it.
