The news broke when Capcom emailed members of it’s Resident Evil Ambassadors program with the new date, and they have also updated the official site.

The games is a 6v6 multiplayer title where famous characters from the series fight to death but with a Resident Evil twist; When you player dies you can transform in to a powerful bioweapon based on enemies from previous games.  While playing you will be able to pick up  Virus Capsules, the more of these you collect the more powerful your mutant bio weapon will be.

We went hands on with the game when the first beta launched, you can read our thoughts of the game here.

Capcom has confirmed that a fan favourite mode will be making its return in Resident Evil Village. That game mode is Mercenaries and it’s a big return after a quite long hiatus. The Mercenaries mode was first present in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, and also appeared in Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 5, and Resident Evil 6. The mode also saw a spin off game in the 3DS title Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D. The reveal of the Resident Evil: The Mercenaries was done during the Resident Evil Showcase, and you can see it in the trailer below.

The Mercenaries mode in Resident Evil Village will not be available until after the main campaign has been completed. In the mode, players need to get as far as possible in stages within time limits. There will be a first person view available in the mode, adding a different style to how the mode has been before which was the third person mode. Players will be able to purchase new weapons and upgrades in game, with those making it to the end of the final stage getting an additional bonus.

There’s also a new trailer for Netflix’s Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness which stars n Claire and Leon tackling a zombie outbreak in the White House. The movie will launch this July.
