Resident Evil 8: Release Date, Trailer, Demo, Multiplayer, and Everything You Need To Know

Resident Evil

The Resident Evil franchise has been a hit ever since the first game was released back in the 1990’s and gaming fans will be excited to see that Resident Evil 8 (Resident Evil: Village) will be coming out soon.

The upcoming survival horror game developed by Capcom will be a straight sequel to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.

There aren’t a lot of zombie games out there, and if some do come out, they seem to struggle to compete with Resident Evil. This is made especially harder as there are also a bunch of Resident Evil movies out, which has made it even more popular.

There is a lot of information out about the Resident Evil 8 game, and here is everything you need to know in the build up to its release.

Release Date

The game’s release date is only around the corner as it was confirmed in the past that it would be available to play for gamers on May 7th 2021.


The latest trailer for the game is available to watch and fans are given a three minute glimpse of what to expect in the survival game.

Instead of doing a 24 hour demo, Resident Evil have decided to give fans what they want and the original 24-hour window starting at 5PM PDT on May 1st (1AM BST May 2nd) has been increased by a week, and is now ending at the same times on May 9 PDT (May 10 BST).

What is good for fans is that once you purchase Resident Evil 8, you get the multiplayer game free and you are able to play with all your favourite characters from the Resident Evil franchise.

It was meant to come out at the same time, but recent news at the end of April has revealed that it will be delayed and instead will be released in the summer of 2021.
