Resident Evil Village: Capcom wants it to become the most successful game in the series

Resident Evil Village

The long-lived Resident Evil franchise is preparing to welcome its new iteration on May 7, when RE Village will finally be published, now also expected in the Google Stadia version.

Starting with the publication of Resident Evil 7 (available free in April with Stadia Pro), and continuing with the remakes of Resident Evil 2 and 3, Capcom has managed to regain the favor of the hard core of the fanbase and restore a strong creative momentum to the series. With the imminent arrival of Village, expectations are very high, both from players and from the authors of first-person survival horror themselves.

During a recent interview granted to GamesIndustry.biz, the Japanese publisher confessed that his biggest ambition for 2021 is to make Resident Evil Village the most successful chapter of the series:

"Our biggest ambition for this year - while there is so much more at stake - is to make sure Resident Evil Village has the best performances in the history of the series, both in terms of quality and sales", said Antoine Molant, marketing director at Capcom EMEA and UK. Certainly the title seems to be promising very well, and the free demo published on PlayStation 5 has done nothing but confirm the potential of the project.

We remind readers that Resident Evil Village will be available starting May 7 on PC (recently released minimum and recommended requirements), PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S, and Google Stadia. We report that Capcom has announced a Beta phase on PC and console of the online multiplayer title Resident Evil Re: Verse to be held during the month of April.






Resident Evil Village is coming to Stadia, and Google will give you free hardware if you buy this version

We already knew that Resident Evil Village will release on a slew of platforms, including the PS5 and Xbox Series X / S. And today, Google announced that the game will also arrive on Stadia. To encourage you to buy this version, Google will throw in a free Stadia Premiere kit to anyone who preorders Resident Evil Village before May 21st. The promotion is available for both the Standard and Deluxe Editions of Resident Evil Village, which cost $60 and $70, respectively.


Normally priced at $100, Google’s Stadia Premiere Edition features a white Stadia controller, a Chromecast Ultra, and, for new users, a one-month trial subscription to Stadia’s Pro-tier service. Stadia Pro includes 4K streaming and a growing collection of free games, similar to Sony’s PlayStation Plus service.


Google had a similar promotion last year


Google had a similar promotion last year when it offered complimentary hardware if you preordered the Stadia version of Cyberpunk 2077. The Resident Evil Village promotion announcement comes at an interesting time as Stadia’s future looks questionable. In February, Google shut down its internal Stadia development studio. That same month, reports from Bloomberg and Wired shed light on some of the tech giant’s failures in building its cloud gaming platform.


Before Resident Evil Village arrives on May 7th, Google also announced today that Stadia Pro members can redeem a free copy of Resident Evil 7 Gold Edition when the game launches on the cloud gaming service on April 1st.
