After the success of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, fans are eagerly waiting to see what Capcom has for them in Resident Evil Village. It's not just about the gameplay elements that fans are interested in, but how Village will perform on next-gen consoles. It seems that we may have some answers on what to expect from the next Resident Evil's performance on the PS5.

According to a PlayStation page for Resident Evil Village, the game will run at dynamic 4K resolution with Ray Tracing. For those who aren't well-versed with technical terminologies, dynamic resolution is a technique that prioritizes framerate over image quality. For instance, if Resident Evil Village is intended to run at 60FPS, dynamic resolution will make sure that the game first meets 60FPS and seamlessly switches between higher and lower resolution based on the framerate.

Resident Evil Village's page also offers other details regarding the game, including a game overview that reads, "Set a few years after the horrifying events in the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, 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."

Resident Evil Village is a sequel to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard and follows in the same footsteps of its predecessor. Players will be again thrown into a first-person horror action situation where they will encounter familiar faces from the previous game, including Chris Redfield, who is surprisingly shown in a villainous light. This time around, players will find themselves in a mysterious village in which horrifying events unfold.

The game page for Resident Evil Village also shared details on how the game will leverage the power of the PS5. As mentioned earlier, Village will run with Ray Tracing, but at dynamic 4K resolution. Village also supports fast loading, adaptive triggers, Haptic feedback, and Tempest 3D audio tech for an immersive experience.

Resident Evil Village is scheduled to release in 2021.
