ALL THANKS TO THE POWER OF THE NEW CONSOLES
The next entry in the franchise, Resident Evil Village 8, will enjoy the benefits of the next generation of consoles, which means short or non-existent loading screens, as well as 3D audio.
In addition, according to recent information, it will be much more extensive than its predecessor. We learned this from an interview for Official PlayStation Magazine UK (the official PlayStation magazine for the UK), in issue 185 for March 2021.
In this magazine, Resident Evil Village producer Peter Fabiano spoke a little more about the exclusive features that PS5 users will have, as well as what we can expect from the extension of this title.
WHAT WE CAN EXPECT FROM RESIDENT EVIL VILLAGE ON PS5
For starters, the issue with the loading screens has to do with what the PS5 offers with its SSD, in the words of Fabiano: ‘this will virtually eliminate the loading screens, allowing gamers to maintain that feeling of immersion’.
In addition, another element that will help build the atmosphere for the players is the sound, quite important in horror games, and that on PS5 will have support for 3D Audio: ‘you will be completely drenched in sounds coming from all directions’.
Finally, as for the extension, let’s remember that Resident Evil VII had a duration of around 10 hours to finish it for the first time, that is if you did not get stuck in a puzzle or a fight with a boss.
With that said, Peter Fabiano confirmed that RE Village will be longer than RE VII: ‘I’ll just say it’s much longer than what players experienced in Resident Evil VII: Biohazard’.
Perhaps for many this was the logical next step, but much of the community can now be calm. Considering that the issue of duration in Resident Evil is a weighty element when evaluating the game.
