Coming to PS4 and PS5 this May, Resident Evil Village sees the return of Ethan Winters as well as series regular Chris Redfield. Set in a mysterious Eastern European village the game recalls Resident Evil 4. Weird locals, monsters, and now a meme-famous vampire clan, Peter Fabiano teases the game's setup in Official PlayStation Magazine's exclusive cover featue.

"We’re not saying that’s what they are, but there’s certainly something that feels supernatural about what’s going on,” he says this issue.
