Resident Evil Village gameplay, Mercenaries mode, upcoming demos, Resident Evil 4 VR, and more from the April 2021 showcase.
The most recent Resident Evil Showcase event took place on April 15, in celebration of the franchise's 25th anniversary. During the livestream, we were treated to a brand-new trailer and gameplay footage for the upcoming Resident Evil Village. We also learned more about other Resident Evil projects Capcom is working on, including the upcoming Netflix series, a special Resident Evil 4 overhaul, and a Dead By Daylight crossover. Here are all the biggest announcements from April's Resident Evil Showcase event.
Resident Evil Village will get multiple demos
If you're looking to play Resident Evil Village early and you're a PlayStation fan, you're in luck. PS4 and PS5 owners will get access to the game's Village demo and Castle demo early--two separate 30-minute experiences. The whole thing is actually kind of confusing, with different windows available for players to download and play each demo. Learn more about what to expect and how to access the Resident Evil Village demos so you can be fully prepared ahead of their launch.

Resident Evil Village brings back Mercenaries mode
Mercenaries mode is back for the first time since Resident Evil 6 and this time in first-person. Capcom also showed off some of the new features, perks, and abilities players can expect, including power bonuses and the ability to purchase new weapons between waves of enemies.
Resident Evil 4 returns in VR
Capcom also announced Resident Evil 4 VR, a complete overhaul of the classic game that reworks it from a third- to first-person shooter that makes use of the Oculus Quest 2's motion controls for interacting with objects, using firearms, and slicing away at enemies with your combat knife.
Resident Evil comes to Dead By Daylight
Dead By Daylight will crossover with Resident Evil, but the brief teaser did not announce which characters are coming to the competitive survival game. The full reveal will take place during an upcoming Dead By Daylight livestream set for May 25.
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness comes to Netflix this summer
Capcom and Netflix have been teasing Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness for a few months, but now we know a bit more about it, including a release date. Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is coming to Netflix in July 2021. It is set two years after the events of Resident Evil 4 and stars Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield. It also features President Graham, father to Ashley, whom Leon was sent on a special mission to rescue in Resident Evil 4.
