Resident Evil Village continues the story of Ethan Winters and takes place three years after the events of RE7. Ethan must go on a mission to rescue his infant daughter from evil vampires and werewolves in a gothic castle while unraveling the mystery of why Chris Redfield would put his family in danger like that.
Twinfinite reviewed the game at launch and thoroughly enjoyed it, scoring the game 4.5/5 and concluding:
“Longtime fans will find plenty to love about the game and the innovations it brings to the table, while newer fans will discover more than a few reasons to stick with the series moving forward.”
The game is now available on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC platforms. A DLC expansion is in development for the game, which was announced at E3 2021.
