The combat system of Resident Evil Village will include the ability to make a block to defend against attacks and to roll a football to ward off enemies.
Much bigger than Resident Evil 7 biohazard, Village will see the return of Ethan Winters come protagonist, and it is this character that was modeled by Capcom to demonstrate the new maneuvers.
“In Resident Evil Village you might find yourself surrounded”, reads the post published by the development team on Twitter and accompanied by a couple of images explanatory: find it here at the bottom.
“Fortunately, Ethan can block some attacks to reduce the amount of damage taken, or kick certain enemies to move them away and create the space needed to open fire … or just to escape.”
In short, these are mechanics similar to those present, for example, in the series Left 4 Dead, where running into lots of zombies nearby is a common situation and you can use a specific command to push them away.
Resident Evil Village sarà available starting May 7 on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S and Xbox One versions.
