New Resident Evil Showcase To Debut In April

Capcom today announced that the next Resident Evil Showcase will be dropping in April. The team didn’t provide further details, although it’s highly likely we’ll see more Resident Evil Village footage during the stream.

The reveal came as part of Resident Evil’s 25th-anniversary festivities – which also saw the reveal of Re:Verse’s open beta dates and the arrival of Resident Evil Village on Stadia. If you decide to pick up Village on Stadia this May, you’ll get a free controller and Chromecast Ultra with your purchase. Village will likely take center stage at the upcoming Resident Evil Showcase, but there’s been no confirmation from Capcom.

“First up, we have a major announcement to kick things off: A new Resident Evil Showcase will be dropping this April,” Capcom wrote. “We don’t want to spoil any surprises, so we’ll leave it to all of you to speculate on what this upcoming presentation might contain.”

If we had to guess, the event will include both Re:Verse and Village – and hopefully a few surprises or remake announcements.

Capcom also announced the PC specs you’ll need to run Resident Evil Village, and they’re about as demanding as you’d expect. Minimum specs include an Intel Core 15-7500, 8GB memory, and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with 4GB VRAM. Recommended hardware is a bit more robust, with a GTX 1070, Intel Core 17 8700, and 16GM memory required.

Resident Evil Village once again follows the story of Ethan Winters, as he tries to escape the terrible events of Resident Evil 7. Of course, things don’t go as planned and – before he knows it – Winters is running through a medieval castle being chased by gigantic vampire ladies. The internet seems to be enthralled with the characters, but Winters is obviously much less enthused.

The lengthy bulletin from Capcom ended with a reminder that PS4 and Xbox One purchases are eligible for a free upgrade to PS5 and Xbox Series X.
