As the report states, players will have more free reign on how to play and control Ethan — including the choices of weapons and the loadout they want to have at their disposal when approaching a certain situation. With the presence of The Duke and acting as a seller of goods much like RE4’s The Merchant, players can expect plenty of firepower and tools that will help them in their latest journey into the world of Survival Horror. In many ways, RE Village is a combination of all genres — sticking to the Survival Horror formula of suspense and danger at every turn while also giving players the range and variety that RE4, 5, and 6 had with weapons and equipment purchases.
