New Resident Evil Village PS5 specs revealed

Resident Evil Village's updated store page boasts next-gen advantages.


Resident Evil Village will continue the long-running horror franchise with new creatures and locations. We don’t have a release date, but we know the game is set to launch in 2021. Capcom’s latest horror-survival game may still be a ways off, but a new update to the game’s PS5 store page reveals how Resident Evil Village will perform on the next-gen console.

The PlayStation 5 store page for Resident Evil Village features screenshots from the upcoming game, as well as the handful of story details we know about at this point. However, a new update reveals specs that inform us how the new Resident Evil wil perform on Sony’s next-gen console. “Instantly pick up right where you left off with almost no load times, thanks to the power of the PS5 console's ultra-high speed SSD.”

Resident Evil Village will also support 4K quality as well as ray tracing, ensuring it will be one of the best looking RE games. We’ve seen Sony boast how the DualSense will transform the way players experience games, and it looks like there will be direct integration for the controller in Resident Evil Village. The features tab on the store page states that players will “feel the weight and pull of weapon triggers for an even more immersive experience,” and “simulate the feeling of firing a real gun with haptic feedback.”

Resident Evil Village will be the eighth mainline entry in Capcom’s horror-survival franchise, and will be the first of the series to be exclusive to next-gen consoles. While we know the game will also launch on the Xbox Series X and Series S, these new details specifically pertain to the PlayStation 5 version of the game. Stay with us on Shacknews for the latest updates on Resident Evil Village.

        Does this sentence just mean it wont be available on the PS4 or XBOne? Because it’s worded like it’s not coming to PC (but it is). Maybe I just need more coffee 😑

          Yeah, they mean there's no current gen release planned.

          Can't see Capcom *not* going to PC after MHW, RE7 and the past RE remakes.

          It was originally planned to be multi-gen on consoles, but when internal marketing testing being more positive than expected allowed the game to be moved into position as the official RE 8 (it wasn’t supposed to be a numbered RE sequel originally), that combined with performance issues and they decided to drop last-gen console support.

      Article doesn’t list the PS5 enhanced-3D audio. That’ll make a huge difference.

      Also, there’ve been rumors going on for a while that RE Village is coming in 1st quarter ‘21. Here’s to this page update being an indicator that that might turn out to be true!

        RE games the last few years have almost always dropped between Jan-March time frame so I would definitely believe that to be the case.
