Resident Evil Village
Capcom has released the second official trailer for Resident Evil Village.
Set a few years after the horrifying events in Resident Evil 7, the all-new storyline begins with Ethan Winters and his wife Mia living peacefully in a new location, free from their past nightmares. Just as they are building their new life together, tragedy befalls them once again.
Chris Redfield, the legendary hero from the Resident Evil series, is reacquainted with the couple and horribly disrupts their life, spiralling Ethan into chaos. A devastated Ethan finds himself in a remote snow-capped village seeking answers after being thrown into an entirely new nightmare.
Resident Evil Village is slated to release for the PS5, Xbox Series X and Steam sometime in 2021.
Publisher Bethesda Softworks and developer Arkane Lyon have released a new gameplay trailer for Deathloop; dubbed “Two Birds One Stone.”
As Colt, players are trapped in a time loop on the enigmatic island of Blackreef, doomed to repeat the same day for eternity. The only chance for escape is to break the loop by unearthing information and assassinating eight key targets before the day resets.
However, lurking in the shadows is rival assassin Julianna, equipped with her own equally powerful abilities and weapons, on a mission to protect the loop by assassinating Colt, and restarting the cycle. Players can also choose to take control of Julianna, turning Deathloop into a deadly game of hunter-vs-hunted.
Deathloop is an innovative first-person shooter launching exclusively for the PS5 and PC sometime in Q2 2021.
