 Resident Evil Village launches worldwide May 7

Capcom revealed during today’s showcase that Resident Evil Village will launch worldwide on May 7, 2021.

Other than the previously announced PS5 and Xbox Series versions (plus PC via Steam), it’ll also be releasing on PS4 and Xbox One, with free upgrades to next-gen for both.

A PS5 exclusive demo, simply titled “Maiden”, was also announced, which is available on PSN now. It features its own story that takes place at a different time to the main game.

Some gameplay for both Maiden and Resident Evil Village was shown during the showcase, with a trailer for the latter featuring Lady Dimitrescu, the giant vampire lady who you’ve no doubt seen fan art for already (SFW or otherwise).

Less exciting was the reveal of Resident Evil Re:Verse, a free multiplayer deathmatch game featuring characters from throughout the series. It didn’t look great, and will likely not last much longer than the ill-fated Resident Evil Resistance.
