Resident Evil Village became the second main part of the Capcom horror series with a first-person view, which, according to the creator of the game, made it more scary, but at the same time more difficult to pass.
In an interview with Dengeki at the Tokyo Game Show 2022, the game director of RE Village, Kento Kinosita, spoke about the view from the 1st and 3rd person.
According to Kinoshita, although the first-person view makes the gameplay more frightening, it can also complicate the game, as it is unusual for some not to see their character on the screen and it is difficult to determine where the enemies are.
It was for this reason that it was decided to add the Third-Person Mode to the Village as a DLC.
However, Kinoshita does not know which camera is considered the best, since they give a different gaming experience, which he personally saw after the introduction of a third person in the eighth part.
With regard to future releases of the series, the developer confirmed that both options would be considered for them, but it might be problematic to provide support for both.
You can appreciate Resident Evil Village with a "shoulder to shoulder" perspective after purchasing the Winters' Expansion kit, which also includes the Shadows of Rose story add-on about Ethan's daughter.
Unlike the main campaign, the extension only supports cameras from 3 people. Resident Evil Village: Winters' Expansion will be released on October 28.
