Resident Evil 7 Rumored To Be Getting PS5, Xbox Series X/S Upgrade
Resident Evil Village NEWS
Yesterday we got a lot of details on Resident Evil Village, the next title in Capcom’s survival horror franchise. PS5 owners even got a very small taste of what’s to come. However, the game is a follow up to one Resident Evil 7, the first mainline game in the series to utilize a first person viewpoint. It seems it could also also be getting some news of its own soon if a new rumor is to be believed.
We found out that Village will, in fact, be coming to previous gen consoles on May 7th. According to known insider/leaker Dusk Golem who has leaked a lot of material on the series for years now, there is also a plan for a “Next-Gen patch” for RE7. He said this is 100% happening, unlike a VR mode in Village, which he said was in the game at one point but seems to have been shelved.
Golem has been really precise in the past in respect to the franchise, but also still, we’ve to cure this to be a rumor with the moment actually being. It’s well worth noting this on yesterday’s showcase, that displayed a great deal of this upcoming Village, there seemed to be a digital bundle which included a Village pre-order as well as the current Gold Edition of Resident Evil 7 that consists of the base game and just post launch DLC. It is very strange they will announce that and do zero note of a planned spot to that game. It might indicate that it, just like the alleged VR function in Village, has really been shelved or perhaps the update won’t be big sufficient for Capcom to warrant building a huge announcement. We will simply have to determine in the approaching days.
Resident Evil 7 is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. It is, of course, also playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S via backwards compatibility. It’s successor, Resident Evil Village, will release across all of those platforms on May 7th.
