About Resident Evil Village and Lady Dimitrescu
Resident Evil Village picks up directly after the events of the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 7. The early access demos have been causing quite a stir online, with new antagonist Lady Dimitrescu (AKA 'giant vampire lady') leaving Resi fans both terrified and enamored.
If you're old enough to remember Resident Evil 4, which originally released back in 2005 on the Nintendo GameCube, you will know what to expect from Village - it shares a very similar aesthetic and style of gameplay, albeit in first-person instead of third. Here's the official spiel from the game's publisher, Capcom:
"Resident Evil Village sees the reunited Ethan and Mia Winters living happily together and putting their shared nightmares of the Baker's plantation behind them… until their life is upended and Ethan becomes the focal point of a new nightmare.
More than just a mysterious backdrop for the horrifying events that unfold in the game, the village is a character in its own right with mysteries for Ethan to uncover and terrors to escape from. Players will experience every up close battle and terrifying pursuit through a first person perspective."
Oooh, spooky. Resident Evil Village is available now on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
