Resident Evil Village is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated video games of this 2021 and, waiting for May 7 to get their hands on it, gamers have noticed that Capcom has updated the tags used to describe its next horror on the dedicated Steam page. The curiosity? In addition to the various and unsurprising “horror”, “survival horror”, “action”, “single-player” and “first person”, in fact, we also find the label “ open world as a feature. “.
Until now, the Japanese house had not spoken of Village as an open world experience, although during the last Resident Evil Showcase it had anticipated that we will find ourselves having to move into the village that gives its name game, with the intention of reaching the castle of the already iconic Lady Dimitrescu.
Asked about this, the insider Dusk Golem (who at the time anticipated the game announcement) states that you shouldn’t we mean “open world” in the traditional sense and that indeed, in some respects the title could look more like a metroidvania, also leading to exploring areas again after the first time.
We are waiting to find out more details on the matter directly from Capcom, to understand what kind of approach – if more linear or more open – the Japanese company will want to give to Ethan’s journey in Resident Evil Village .
In the meantime, we remind you that you can test the new demo Maiden on PS5, which allows you to start immersing yourself in the settings and characters of horror, waiting for the game to debut on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S next May.
