The Resident Evil series has always been famous for its survival horror gameplay. With Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, the game went back to its roots, and this trend continues with Resident Evil Village, which is the sequel to the game. Resident Evil Village's gameplay is more action-oriented compared to Resident Evil 7's gameplay, but it maintains the series' horror elements.
The game is played in first-person. The player can explore the village and avoid the mutants. The player can also buy supplies, weapons, and food from the Duke. The player can hunt animals, and have them cooked by the Duke. Eating food will provide the player with a temporary benefit such as a decreased damage taken when blocking. The player may manually save the game by locating the typewriters. Six players can play together in the multiplayer mode, Resident Evil RE: Verse.
The gameplay of Resident Evil Village is more action-oriented than its predecessor's. It features a very similar inventory management system to that of Resident Evil 4, with a briefcase and the ability to move and rotate items in storage. The player can buy supplies and weapons from the Duke, who is the merchant in the game. There are also side dishes in the game that give the player certain advantages, such as decreasing damage taken while blocking. The game also features an online multiplayer mode.
The graphics in the game are 3D. The graphics of Resident Evil Village are very similar to those of Resident Evil 7. The game is set in a snowy Eastern European village, and the graphics are very stylistic and very well done.
It is possible to replay the game. Resident Evil Village is replayable, but not as replayable as Resident Evil 7 because of the lack of puzzle-solving and the focus on action.
