Phwoar, this scribe loves the sound of this announcement. Capcom has revealed it will host a Resident Evil showcase next week on Thursday 21st January 2021, where it will share a new Resident Evil Village trailer and gameplay walkthrough. Those two exciting tidbits will be accompanied by more general news on the series as a whole, meaning there could even be another reveal or two to look forward to. The livestream will get underway at 2pm PT/ 5pm ET/ 10pm GMT — we’re not sure how long it will last at the time of writing.
The Resident Evil showcase will also disclose details concerning a closed beta for some sort of 4-6 multiplayer game, which will take place from 27th-29th January. It is not currently known if this is a mode contained within Resident Evil Village. You can apply for a slot through here, with the closed beta conducted on PlayStation 4. Don’t worry if you own a PlayStation 5 though, this pre-release test can still be played via backwards compatibility.
