Resident Evil Village producer Peter Fabiano recently stated in an interview for the March 2021 edition of PlayStation Official Magazine UK that Resident Evil Village indeed does draw a lot of influence from Resident Evil 4, one of the most critically well-received games in the series.
He went on to say:
“You’ll notice we took a lot of inspiration from Resident Evil 4. The team has put a ton of effort into creating a truly authentic feel. There are plenty of surprises to keep you on your toes; players will find a balance of combat, exploration, and puzzle solving.”Peter Fabiano, Resident Evil Village Producer
The location, a castle as a center point, and obviously the inclusion of a merchant in Village alone definitely give off big Resident Evil 4 energy, so just the environment itself should be rewarding for fans of Leon’s adventure in Europe.
We’re definitely looking forward to exploring and discovering more of Ethan’s story soon.
Resident Evil Village will be available on May 7th, 2021 for the Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, and Steam.
