A couple of months ago, we speculated whether Resident Evil Village would be first-person or not. The Resident Evil series debuted with a fixed camera angle. Many of the earlier games in the Resident Evil series used a fixed camera or third-person angle. However, after Resident Evil 7: Biohazard was released, many were surprised to see a first-person camera. This angle made for a completely different Resident Evil experience than we were used to.
Resident Evil Village Have The First-Person Camera
Unfortunately for the Resident Evil fans wanting to go back to a simpler time of fixed camera angles, players will face off against a variety of enemies using first-person gameplay. Since Resident Evil Village is a direct sequel to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, it makes sense to continue the same aesthetic (especially when Biohazard was commercially successful and well-received).
The developers stated they feel the first-person view is better for immersion, and we believe them. It’s a more immersive horror, especially in games like Phasmophobia or Visage, to let players see the world through a first-person camera.
It also makes sense to have a first-person camera for Resident Evil 8 because of the guarding system being implemented in the game. The developers stated that guarding is just as important to combat in Resident Evil Village as using weapons.
