Resident Evil Village unveils new details: Crafting, animal hunting, and the dreaded lycanthropes. If you’re a fan of Capcom’s franchise, you’re in luck. Today we will have a Resident Evil Showcase, ready to offer us a good portion of content about Resident Evil: Village and much more.
Resident Evil Village unveils new details
Now, thanks to a new preview by Game Informer, we have learned many details about the work. For example, through the video released by the media, elements related to the crafting of materials or hunting to cooking different dishes have been revealed.
As you can see, Ethan can hunt animals such as pigs, goats, chickens, or fish to prepare dishes. These will provide us with various power-ups, such as reduced damage when it comes to taking cover.
While some larger animals will defend themselves and attack us, we will have to weigh in the balance if we prefer to spend a few bullets to kill them or prefer to reserve them for real enemies.
Through the character The Duke, we can upgrade weapons using the Lei currency, typical of the Romanian country in which it is set. There will be several ways to get cash, either from the fallen bodies or selling valuables, such as crystals. You will also be able to buy supplies, ammunition, medicines, or other weapons.
Lycanthropes, the people, and the importance of Ethan
In the previous video, we got a glimpse of some creepy beings: the lycanthropes. Thanks to the information provided by AestheticGamer1, we know that these enemies will be tricky.
They are rated as the most intelligent and complicated opponents of any installment to date. They can wait from the rooftops, ambush us and act in different ways depending on whether they are alone or in a pack.
Also touched on is the scary-looking scenery. Capcom refers to it as just that, as “the village”, and aims to bring together the best virtues of the rest of the franchise’s scenarios. There will be elements that continuously invite terror, such as goats hanging from trees or horse corpses scaring visitors.
The design of the place itself affects Ethan, the protagonist, since having a more vertical orography, he will increase his speed compared to Resident Evil 7. On the other hand, we will hear recurrently Ethan’s thoughts, as the development team wanted to give a more psychological component to the work.
With a release scheduled for May 7, Resident Evil: Village promises to win over users. Other details have been revealed in recent weeks, especially those related to Lady Dumitrescu and the mysterious Mother Miranda.
