Game news Resident Evil Village: A mystical and terrifying creature could have joined vampires and lycans!
As April begins, we are gradually approaching the anniversary of the release of Resident Evil Village. Right now it’s hard to know what the future of the franchise holds for us: if tongues struggle to break free from upcoming projects, the projects already released are more talkative and still deliver us some well-preserved secrets, such as that of an earlier draft of the eighth installment in the saga.
- No news, good news ?
- Capcom pulled the alarm siren
No news, good news ?
In a month, day by day, Resident Evil Village celebrates its first birthday, but it’s been dead quiet around Capcom’s horror franchise for the past few months† There have indeed been vague expectations the release of a free DLClast October, or rumorsquickly defused, the arrival of the eighth opus within the Xbox Game Pass, but that’s all. Rest assured, it’s not because the game isn’t talked about much anymore that it’s going bad.
On the contrary, since its release, the latest addition to the Resident Evil franchise has stood out in numerous events, golden joysticks to the DICE Awards come the BAFTAs† If he doesn’t necessarily have to bring back figurines, Capcom reports showed nice gains generated by this eighth episode.
Those who have completed Ethan Winters’ latest odyssey can’t wait to find out what’s at stake in the ninth installment. However, Capcom is reluctant to release any information on this subject. So in the meantime, some of the most curious players are looking for information: a handful come back empty-handed, when others make finds… but in the episode released in May 2021, he’s far from revealing all his secrets!
Thanks to Dusk Golem, a developer and great horror enthusiast, aka AestheticGamer, we learn that many changes were made during the making of the eighth installment, especially the swampy area and Moreau’s stronghold. Initially, somewhat like Lady Dimitrescu and her three daughters, one of the monstrous antagonists of this part could have counted on the help of mythical creatures to track down Ethan Winters’ character.
(1/7) I was thinking about this, so I’m going to talk about it. Moreau’s area RE8 has been pruned a lot, I don’t think I actually sat down and fully explained what I knew about Moreau’s wetland before it was pruned so I think I’ll do that now.

Indeed, our hero could have battled mermaids in this area, especially during the water phases, and witnessed a series of bizarre events and other highly suspicious rituals.† Unfortunately, due to a lack of time and money, Capcom has had to make choices and amputate this area of certain content. A sad situation, sure, but we can thank Capcom for preserving our hearts by sparing us the fear of being dragged into the abyss by a group of devil sirens!
