For those who aren’t familiar, Resident Evil Village is categorized as a AAA title, since it was developed for consoles such as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. The game, however, requires a Mac with an M1 chip or later to run.

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.

Just as they are building their new life together, tragedy befalls them once again.

Some of the highlights of the game include:

  • First-Person Action – Players will assume the role of Ethan Winters and experience every up-close battle and terrifying pursuit through a first-person perspective.
  • Familiar Faces and New Foes – Chris Redfield has typically been a hero in the Resident Evil series, but his appearance in Resident Evil Village seemingly shrouds him in sinister motives. A
  • A host of new adversaries inhabiting the village will relentlessly hunt Ethan and hinder his every move as he attempts to make sense of the new nightmare he finds himself in.
