Capcom's upcoming survival horror Resident Evil Village has had another playtest, which put playtesters in the boots of a female character, who finds herself in a dark cave, surrounded by Krampus-like enemies with goat horns.

Thanks to the latest Resident Evil Village playtest, we have a bunch of new details about new enemy types, new location and playable characters. A playtester, who claims to have been participating in the new round of playtesting has shared these details with folks over at biohazardcast , and here is the breakdown of the fresh new info:

  • The new location is a dark cave, very similar to the final caves of Resident Evil 7. 
  • The playtester controlled a female character with a kerosene lantern. (Potentially the same female that can be seen in the trailer?)
  • No weapons during this segment as the only objective was to escape the caves.
  • The woman looked very distressed and the playtester reiterated that the caves are very dark.
  • These caves featured a yet unseen enemy type that is very different from the beast-men in the trailer.
  • New enemies were tall and very similar to Krampus with goat horns, furry and bipedal.
  • Enemies carried swords but also had the ability to bite and grab the player.
  • A file found in the cave referred to these creatures as Strigoi, a troubled spirit from Romanian folklore that are said to have arisen from the grave.
  • One of the witches, named Scarlett, was in the caves and she was able to control the Strigoi. 
  • Again, the main objective is to stay hidden and escape the caves as you don't have any weapons to defend yourself.
  • Once you manage to escape the cave, you'll reach a room in the castle where a woman named Pepi resides.
  • Pepi is described as tired and under threat from having to take orders from someone she didn't want to.
