Horror games don’t necessarily need to be the longest, but at around 8-10 hours long, Resident Evil 7 was definitely a bit on the shorter side. With its upcoming sequel though, it seems Capcom are looking to craft a much meatier adventure.
Speaking recently in an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine (issue 185), when asked about how long players can expect Resident Evil Village to be, though producer Pete Fabiano was unwilling to put a number on the game’s runtime in terms of hours, he did say that it’s going to be “much larger” than Resident Evil 7.
Previous rumours have suggested that Resident Evil Village is going to put a large emphasis on exploration, and that it’s going to be the longest game in the series to be built on the RE Engine (which includes the remakes for Resident Evil 2 and 3 as well). Recently, the game’s map was also leaked, and it definitely suggested a much larger experience.
Resident Evil Village is due out on May 7 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
