Today is a very special day for all horror video game lovers, as Resident Evil Village, the latest installment in the popular Capcom saga, is now available. After the enormous success of Resident Evil 7 , the Japanese company had a great challenge ahead when it came to surprising and pleasing fans again. With the analyzes already published and the game already in stores, it seems that the title will have a great reception, but what many did not expect is that it is already breaking records.
As indicated by the user Morwull on his Twitter account, Resident Evil Village debuted on the Steam platform as a phenomenon, reaching a number of 100,578 simultaneous players playing on their computers. In addition to this pleasant surprise for the Capcom developers, the truth is that these numbers place this installment as “the best debut of a Resident Evil video game” on PC , surpassing Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3 and Resident Evil 7: biohazard. This data is verified by Steam’s own database.
Beyond the Valve platform, this survival horror is also having a huge reception on Twitch, gathering a total of 600,000 viewers who are consuming broadcasts of Resident Evil Village. Thus, it seems that Capcom’s latest work could not have started its journey through the stores with a better foot, and it is very likely that as the days go by, it will break more company records.
A hybrid between RE7 and RE4
Resident Evil Village puts players back into the shoes of Ethan Winters, who is forced to enter a mysterious town in Romania to rescue his daughter from the clutches of a certain Mother Miranda. Along the way, good old Ethan will meet all kinds of locals as he takes on never-before-seen creatures that will put him on the ropes on more than one occasion. Lycanthropes, vampires and the creepy Lady Dimitrescu are waiting.
