The popular Japanese video game survival action series, "Resident Evil," has finally announced and revealed its eighth installment for the franchise, offering the hit horror genre for next-generation consoles. The drop came in as a surprise as no news from Capcom were spotted or taken a whiff off its latest game release, after the company released the announcement trailer in June last year.

Fans were not expecting the release of "Resident Evil Village" to come in swiftly, as the gaps in the previous release from the Japanese gaming company, Capcom, were extended and lengthy. However, the game is now coming and it would accommodate both current consoles and the next-generation ones, with the likes of PlayStation 5 and PS4, along with Xbox Series X and One, and the PC.

According to PlayStation's Blog, "Resident Evil Showcase" brought users the first-look and the PS5-exclusive demo which would be available upon pre-orders of the game. This initial release would put players in the shoes of a person called "Maiden" instead of the franchise's lead, Ethan Winters.

At the start, Lady Dimitrescu already shows a menacing stand over "Maiden" and establishes herself as one of the villains in the story. However, the exclusive PlayStation 5 demo would be separate from the main plot of the game, as "Resident Evil Village" would still focus on Ethan Winters, as it has in the previous installments of the franchise.
