The hype and anticipation for Resident Evil Village have been building up over the last few weeks and months, and with the game launching imminently, they’re at a fever pitch. Ahead of its launch, Capcom have released a launch trailer- it’s very brief, at around half a minute in length, but it’s something.
Be warned though- the trailer is full of spoilers. There’s a lot of scenes in there that Capcom hadn’t shown up until now- and for good reason, seeing as many of them are from very, very, very late in the game. So, you know, if you want to head into the game blind, you should avoid this launch trailer.
