During the June 11 PlayStation 5 event, Resident Evil Village, otherwise known as RE8, was revealed for 2021. The wildly anticipated horror title follows in the footsteps of 7, and will be another first-person-shooter. 

Sony showed off what will be the future of its platform during its PS5 event. Viewers were also given a major look at the next step in the Resident Evil franchise, with the announcement of VIII.

The sequel to the massively successful 2017 title RE7 is called Village, and looks to take fans back to a setting reminiscent of the iconic fourth entry. Here is everything we know about the upcoming release.

Resident Evil 8 Village announced

Sony held its official blowout for the PlayStation 5, and to cap off its stellar lineup of new titles, Japanese developer Capcom debuted Resident Evil 8. The announcement came with a full blown trailer, which depicts a creepy village tucked away in a snowy landscape.

The latest release in the horror franchise looks to be another FPS survival game, taking after VII’s terrifying adventure within the Baker Mansion. The video also revealed the return of veteran character Chris Redfield, sporting a new design.

Over on the official PlayStation blog, more details about the game were revealed. Players will again take on the role of 7’s protagonist, Ethan. The release takes place two years after the events of VII, making it a direct continuation of the plot.

According to the Sony post, the protag will find himself dragged back into another terrifying situation after Chris Redfield shows up – and he has to pursue him into a mysterious village. Sounds very similar to 4, and we aren’t complaining.

“Taking place a few years after the events of Resident Evil 7 biohazard, in which protagonist Ethan Winters traveled to Louisiana to search for his missing wife, Mia, Resident Evil Village sees the reunited Mia and Ethan living happily together and putting their shared nightmares of the Baker’s plantation house behind them,” the blog post stated.

Capcom
The newest Resident Evil looks absolutely insane.

PlayStation 5’s lineup is looking insanely stacked already. From a Demon Souls remake, to Resident Evil’s next release – fans have a lot to be excited for. The Capcom title looks to be releasing in 2021, although so far an exact date hasn’t been announced.

The franchise first made its debut in 1996 on the PS1, and has largely been third-person and over-the shoulder POV. However in 2017, RE7 marked a new direction for the franchise with its FPS design. Perhaps Sony has plans to launch 8 alongside its new iteration of PSVR.

Envoy’s AK74u Black Ops Cold War loadout after MP5 nerf

OpTic Chicago star player Dylan ‘Envoy’ Hannon has unveiled his go-to AK74u class in Black Ops Cold War, as a potential replacement for the nerfed MP5.

When Cold War first dropped, the MP5 was perhaps the most popular weapon in the game, able to excel across most ranges with minimal recoil and damage drop-off.

That said, a nerf came in for the weapon that increased its recoil and made it less effective than before, leaving players to look for alternatives.

While he and other pros will likely be keeping MP5 loadouts for their close-quarters fights, Envoy has shown off his ideal AK74u loadout that he plans on using in-game when the opportunity arises.

The AK74u could be the perfect MP5 alternative.

The 74u definitely seems to be second in line in terms of the game’s submachine guns, behind only the MP5, so if you feel like the nerf has thrown you off, you might want to give this loadout some consideration.

Here’s what Envoy stacks on his AK-74u to compete against the top pros:

  • Muzzle: Spetsnaz compensator
  • Barrel: 9.3” VDV Reinforced
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Speedgrip
  • Handle: Speed Tape
  • Stock: No Stock

Of all his class setups, this is the only one Envoy has named, calling it “Speed” — so you know exactly what you’re getting from this one.

As with his other classes, and as required by his role on OpTic, Envoy carries a 1911 pistol in his back pocket, and for equipment, he takes a Trophy System, Semtex, and a Smoke Grenade, perfect for rushing objectives or holding off potential lanes from enemies.

If you like playing aggressively with an SMG, this might be what you want to go for, especially if you’re not loving the post-nerf MP5. And, given the past couple of years, Envoy is definitely somebody you want to listen to when it comes to SMG gameplay.
