Following its reveal back in June at the PlayStation 5 showcase, Capcom has released a series of new trailers for Resident Evil Village, including one at Sony’s September PS5 event. While we’ve already seen several cutscene footage of the game, we have yet to see actual gameplay.
Recently though, Capcom has announced that it is holding a Resident Evil Showcase on January 21 at 2PM PST (January 22 at 6AM PHT). The Showcase will feature Resident Evil producers as they reveal a new trailer, as well as give us our first-ever look at Resident Evil Village gameplay.

Resident Evil Village is the eighth major installment in the long running RE series (barring the RE2 and RE3 Remakes), and it serves as a direct sequel to RE7: Biohazard. Village’s story is described by Capcom as:
“Taking place a few years after the events of Resident Evil 7 biohazard, in which protagonist Ethan Winters traveled to Louisiana to search for his missing wife, Mia, Resident Evil Village sees the reunited Mia and Ethan living happily together and putting their shared nightmares of the Baker’s plantation house behind them.
Finally able to move on from those horrifying events, Ethan’s world suddenly comes crashing down once again when Chris Redfield, an unexpected yet familiar face makes an appearance, setting off a chain of events that sees a distraught Ethan seeking answers to Chris’s shocking actions… and ultimately finding him in a mysterious village.“
Resident Evil Village will release sometime in 2021 on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
