Resident Evil Village
Released May 7 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and Stadia.
We told you a lot about it on the Journal du Geek, and that’s because we can’t wait for Resident Evil Village. Between its many teasers and its two open demos, which we were able to test, Capcom was able to make the launch of the game a real event. In this eighth installment of the franchise, you still play as Ethan Winters who goes in search of his daughter. His road leads him to a strange village overlooked by a castle sheltering monsters in all forms. Both mysterious and terrifying, the game draws us like a magnet.

After rumors of a release on PS4, it has been confirmed that for now the title will only be released on Switch.
