Even though it only launched on May 7th, Resident Evil Village can easily be considered an incredible success for Capcom, as it’s been announced via a press release that the first-person horror game has managed to surpass three million copies sold worldwide, across both digital and retail. Not bad for a few days.


Resident Evil Village Sold Three Million Copies Already?

Yes, but even though that’s an impressive number, it’s still got a way to go before it manages to catch up to its predecessor, Resident Evil 7, which has sold 8.5 million copies as of December 31st, 2020. Either way, the 3 million copies sold for Village have helped the Resident Evil franchise cross the 100 million copies sold across its games, making it one of the most recognisable and successful franchises ever made.


Is Resident Evil Village Any Good?

Like most Resident Evil games, it’s a bit campy, and lighter on horror than the previous game, but there’s lot to enjoy with Village. Here’s a snippet from our review:

Village has its flaws, and I don’t mean the reused assets — which are hard to avoid in a game that encourages the player to check everything — or the varying quality in enemy textures. The setting, enemies, and combat mostly works, but not always and not always together. However, none of that takes away from an otherwise enjoyable experience. Those going in not caring that it might not feel exactly like Resident Evil or who understand that sometimes the cracks will show are going to have the most enjoyment from the game. Finish it, enjoy the Mercenaries mode, unlock bonuses, and play it again. That’s exactly what I’ll be doing.
