Resident Evil Village Tester Event Reveals VR Option For PS5

Resident Evil Village details leaked

Today, RelyonHorror provided new information about Resident Evil Village. The next huge installment in the popular survival-horror franchise has been on the minds of many gamers and according to Biohazard Declassified tester event featuring Resident Evil Ambassadors, the game will feature instant kills with swords, a spider boss, melee weapons, a female merchant, and much more.

According to the tester, Ethan and the enemies will have an assortment of melee weapons. With the sword being an instant kill if the enemy performs a specific attack.

ENEMIES

The enemies within these areas are very pale, almost rotten skin, with tattoos on their foreheads and hands. Some with armor, but not like knight armor, that can also be shot off. They only speak of “normal” enemy types in this test, not of the “werewolf” like creatures we’d spoke on, and that was shown in the trailer.

They do speak in a distorted foreign language. Some carried daggers, swords, axes, and even spears. There are some without armed weapons. They jump and grab and bite similar to Resident Evil 3, and you can button-mash to take less damage. Some enemies will throw you to the ground instead of biting. The one with the sword has a special attack that can instantly behead Ethan. And according to the source, you’ll recognize the move once you play the game.

Olga is a boss the testers faced. This naked woman was covered in black goo and could control insects, even turning into a giant spider that Ethan must face. This is likely a placeholder name and the dialogue, which included laughing, was also just a placeholder until the lines are recorded.

So here’s where that information gets really interesting as the claim goes into details of a boss fight you get in the playtests. Now, this does line pretty close to watch we know of the first “witch” we spoke of from the other tests that can dissolve into insects and chases Ethan and has a distinctive laugh. They also give a name to the “Witch” and refer to her as Olga.

Once opening the door the lady in black named Olga appeared and released a swarm of insects. The player won’t have to fight the insects unless she spots Ethan. She would laugh constantly whenever she spots him.

In this boss fight, players grabbed a torch to use fire to scare her insects off to get Olga exposed to shoot her. After a bit of shooting, she’ll transform into this insect/spider-like creature with long spider legs and releasing more insects coming out from her insect-like bottom. Her human remains are still there, but naked and covered with black goo. After the defeat, she melted and some parts of skeletons covered in the goo remained and she dropped an item. She also released all of her insects, to which the player will find and kill them to stop them from attacking you in certain rooms. After that, the demo ended.

Weapons and inventory will operate the same as Resident Evil 4 with the Resident Evil 7 interface. With the female hinted during the trailer being a merchant and not the male merchant from RE4.

WEAPONS

The playtest featured a handgun(probably the same one shown in the developer preview), a shotgun (possibly obtained from the old man in the trailer), and an unbreakable knife. It also appears the player can obtain temporary melee weapons like an axe that can be broken off with a few hits.

INVENTORY

According to our source, the inventory screen wasn’t the same as the Special Message video, but similar (Resident Evil 4 concept with Resident Evil 7 UI design). The game paused when viewing the inventory like Resident Evil 2 and 3 remakes. During the testing, there also wasn’t currency added and the enemies didn’t drop items. Instead, crates and vases were breakable to find items.

MYSTERIOUS OLD WOMAN

The old woman in robes that can be seen from the Resident Evil 8: Village reveal trailer was also mentioned by our source as being almost a merchant-like character in the game. As far as our source knows, she is not an enemy, but as our source described, “has many goods to sell and rumors to share”. They also spoke briefly on seeing some concept art but didn’t speak much on it.

The last line of the quote reveals that Capcom is working on a VR option for the game. However, it seems to be a Sony exclusive similar to Resident Evil 7's VR option. Which allowed players to play the entire game in VR and was highly praised, becoming one of the biggest reasons to buy a PS VR.

Finally, they said a VR version of Resident Evil 8: Village will happen, but they won’t make that announcement until Sony is ready.

This is a lot of great new information. Currently, Capcom is working on Resident Evil Village for next-generation systems and rumored to be remaking Resident Evil 4 after the massive success of the previous 2 remakes.
