Capcom announced today that the new title Resident Evil Village has shipped over 3 million units worldwide. Additionally, the cumulative shipments of the games in the series now exceed 100 million units since the first title debuted in 1996.
Representing the eighth main entry in the series, Resident Evil Village is the sequel to Resident Evil 7 biohazard. As Capcom noted, RE Village features a higher degree of action and even more expansive, highly-engaging gameplay.
In the game, players take on the role of protagonist Ethan Winters. Players will delve into a new kind of survival horror set in a mysterious, icy village. The game uses the RE Engine and features real-time ray tracing effects. Be sure to read our PC Performance Analysis as the PC version currently has some optimization issues.
Moreover, Capcom will launch Resident Evil Re:Verse; an online multiplayer action game where players battle it out as popular characters from the series. The game will be provided free to players who purchase Resident Evil Village. Capcom further plans a number of initiatives to expand the value of the brand, including the franchise’s first original CG animated series Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, which will launch worldwide exclusively on Netflix, as well as a variety of other cross-media expansions.
