Resident Evil Village has become the second main installment in Capcom ‘s first-person horror series, which the creator of the game claims made it scarier, but at the same time more difficult to complete.
In an interview with Dengeki at the recent Tokyo Game Show 2022, RE Village game director Kento Kinoshita spoke about the 1st and 3rd person view.
According to Kinoshita, while the first-person view makes the gameplay more intimidating, it can also make the game more difficult, as some people find it strange not to see their character on the screen and it is difficult to determine where the enemies are. It is for this reason that it was decided to add Third-Person Mode to the “Village” as DLC.
However, Kinoshita does not know which camera to consider the best, since they provide a different gaming experience, as he personally saw after the introduction of a third person in the eighth part. As for future releases of the series, the developer confirmed that both options will be considered for them, but it can be problematic to support two at once .
It will be possible to evaluate Resident Evil Village from an over-the-shoulder perspective after purchasing the Winters’ Expansion kit , which also includes the Shadows of Rose plot add- on about Ethan’s daughter. Unlike the main campaign, the extension only supports 3rd person camera.
Resident Evil Village: Winters’ Expansion will release on October 28th.
