The Latest In Survival Horror: Resident Evil Village - The Eighth Instalment
Electric Travels | Jun 25, '21
Ethan and Mia Winters and their sinisterly named newborn, baby Rosemary, who's name I am sure is no accident, are still trying to move on from the horrific events that transpired at the Baker Estate. Three years past since the canon ending of the acclaimed title Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, which whenever reminded of conjures up images of the infamous garage scene, the Winters family find themselves by good fortune relocated to the European continent under the watchful eye of Chris Redfield. And that, folks, is the end of the Winter’s story and they live happily ever after. Round of applause!
I’m lying! Come on! You know it can’t be as easy as that? This is Resident Evil were talking about!
Lycan Resident Evil Village
Introducing CAPCOM's eighth instalment of the series: Resident Evil Village. A game built through the distinctive RE Engine, Resident Evil Village despite being ominously designed has some absolutely marvellous visuals that are brimful in their detail. Ranging from the radiance of period architecture to the intricate facial detail (sometimes too much so!) of the denizens of the titular Village – RE8 lives up to our expectation; partnering the graphic potential of the next generation consoles, using features like Ray-Tracing, with the classic look and feel of the Resident Evil franchise – a combination creating an awesome journey throughout this terrifying world we find ourselves in. Whilst playing I found it difficult to know where to look! Do I concern myself with this vampire girl in front of me, but hang on take a look at the detail of that crumbling wall! Damn! Should I be fascinated or fearful?
So, what went wrong for Ethan Winters this time? This guy has some really, really bad luck. In a turn of events, Chris Redfield and his Hound Wolf squad attack the Winter’s family home, some crazy stuff happens (no spoilers today!) and then we find ourselves in the Village of Shadows: a mountainous Romanian settlement overlooked by the impressive but menacing Castle Dimetrescu. The Village is governed by a theocratic group of four houses, the Dimetrescu, Beneviento, Heisenberg and Moreau clans but ultimately led by an extremely maternal and compassionate (not really) figure named Mother Miranda. The Village, a perpetually clouded and heavily darkened backwater, and its citizens is plagued by the same form of Mold, known as Megamycete and producing the Cadou Parasite that infects the Village, that we encountered in Louisiana during the Evil Dead inspired Resident Evil 7: Biohazard game. Infesting the Village, the Molded encompasses a broader spectrum of adversaries: Lycans, a werewolf-human hybrid, the Moroaica, paying homage to the Moroi, an aspect of Romanian Folklore, who in the Village are a zombified group of women murdered by the Dimetrescu family and the Samca, an airborne and bat-like variation of the Moroaica. Perching at the upper rungs of our adversaries sits the vampiric Dimetrescu clan comprised of Lady Alcina Dimetrescu, who is herself one of Mother Miranda’s ‘Cadou Parasite’ experiments which explains why she is almost 10ft tall, and her three near-identical fiendish daughters. You will become well-acquainted with unholy Dimetrescu quartet, especially the mother, Alcina, as they will ruthlessly stalk you throughout specific locations, forcing you to always keep an uneasy eye peering over your shoulder. Maintaining the franchises traditional first-person shooter approach, the game imbues our experience with terror and panic, particularly in the first half of the gameplay, but also expands somewhat with a greater level of action play in Resident Evil’s largest map yet.
The Old Hag Resident Evil Village
Our primary task as Ethan Winters is to locate our abducted daughter, Rosemary, and get her to safety. Thankfully, Ethan is now from past experience a skilled rifleman which translates over to better shot accuracy and faster reload times – and lord knows are we going to need it. It is unimportant if you are new to the Resident Evil series for Village introduces many novel factors to the series, but it is a good idea to have a rough idea of the Resident Evil lore before playing. We are given intel by a rotund fellow named the Duke, who just so happens to be a merchant we can trade supplies and weapons with using Lei, the Romanian currency. The Duke also helps
