Resident Evil Village and Re: Verse has been rated by ESRB. These ratings give a brief overview of all the violence and other mature themes in the game.
Resident Evil Village is the successor to Resident Evil 7, and it is currently set to launch on May 7th. There are also multiple demos that are available to play for the game featuring the titular Village and the Castle ruled by Lady Dimitrescu. These demos will be available for the general public on all platforms beginning this May while they are currently available exclusively for the PS4 and PS5.
ESRB rating has listed some of the enemies and weapons that the players will encounter in Village, and also detailed the violence and gore that is expected from it.
This is a survival-horror action game in which players assume the role of a man (Ethan Winters) searching for his missing daughter through a wintry village. From a first-person perspective, players explore environments and use pistols, shotguns, and machine guns to shoot and kill fantastical creatures (e.g., werewolves, ghouls, mutants, mechanical humanoids) found throughout the surrounding areas. Some attacks result in decapitation and/or dismemberment of enemies, often accompanied by large splatters of blood; some areas depict large bloodstains and entrails within the environment. Cutscenes can depict additional acts of intense violence and gore: a character’s heart ripped out of their chest; a person chopped through the shoulder by a machete; a character impaled through the chest by a giant weapon; a person repeatedly shot. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in the game.
In addition to Village, Resident Evil Re: Verse has also been rated with the following description.
This is a multiplayer third-person shooter, based on the Resident Evil franchise, in which players compete in deathmatches against other online opponents. Players use pistols, machine guns, and rocket launchers to kill opponents in fast-paced and frenetic combat. Combat is highlighted by realistic gunfire, large explosions, and frequent blood-splatter effects. Some attacks result in characters exploding into pieces when killed. Players can also assume the roles of various monsters that perform finishing attacks (e.g., throat rip, head stomp, impalement), often resulting in large sprays of blood. Some environments depict severed animal heads and entrails.
Resident Evil Village and Resident Evil Re: Verse will be out on May 7. You can find out more about the game including its file size on current-generation consoles.
