60+ Awesome Resident Evil Village Screenshots From My Playthrough

in Hive Gaminglast month

The screenshots shown in this post contains spoilers from Resident Evil Village!


After finishing the story of Resident Evil Village around a month ago I've kept the game installed because I've been wanting to run the game again on higher difficulties. I had so much fun with this game that I wanted to collect all of the achievements for it. Apart from playing a little bit of the Mercenaries Mode I haven't really touched the game since finishing the story.

Now I finally went and started up New Game+ to give the game a go on the Hardcore difficulty. New Game+ is an option that opens up after finishing the game where you get to play the game again with all the gear and weapons you had when you finished the game. You also get to utilize all of the perks you get from the extra content shop. That also meant having some extra guns available from the in-game shop as well as infinite ammo for some guns.

Sadly the game wasn't fun the second time around. I started out by reaching the castle and couldn't make myself continue any further. I thought maybe it was because I had all the extra guns and infinite ammo which made the game kinda trivial. I restarted the game without New Game+ but it was the same. I guess once the mystery had been unveiled and the game doesn't have any surprises anymore it's not as fun.

I'm gonna give it one last shot in a couple of days to see if I have more fun, but until then it seems like my days with Resident Evil Village has come to an end. It's still without a doubt the best game I have played this year so far and I can see it being ranked as one of my favorite video games for a long time to come.


Photo Mode

One thing I never talked much about in my earlier posts was the photo mode. Those of you who have followed my posts for a while will know that I love me a good photo mode and Resident Evil Village has one. I'm sure that my playthrough of the game lasted a couple of hours longer than average because I took so many pictures.

It's really annoying that Capcom had to put their own watermark over all the screenshots but there's nothing that can be done about that. They could at least have made it less prominent.

It would be a real shame not to share them with someone so that's what this post is about. Celebrating the awesome visuals and detailed world of this fantastic game!


The Village

The Village is an important location in the game further strengthened by the fact that it's also the title of the game. It acts as a sort of a hub that takes you to all the different locations in the game. Every time you finish a location you go back to the Village where you're able to unlock new buildings and locations, uncover new loot and secrets as well as progress to the next stage of the game.

It's also a visually striking place and I felt like I always found new awesome visuals to photograph as I explored it. Here are some of my favorites.

The Castle

The Castle was probably my favorite location to play through. It wasn't just visually awesome but it was also greatly laid out. Another one of those places where it was hard to not take pictures. It also includes the awesome Lady Dimitrescu and her daughters.

The Doll House

The Doll House was probably the creepiest location in the game. It's also the smallest location in the game but what it looks in size it makes up for in quality. While the chase sequences with Lady Dimitrescu was stressfull enough they're nothing compared to what lurks in the basement of this house. They really did a good job with the atmosphere in this place.

Moreaus Sunken Village

Moreaus part of the village was perhaps my least favorite part, mostly because it was so linear. Now this is a linear game but the other parts of the game lets you explore several rooms and side areas freely, but the Sunken Village didn't have a lot of that. It also didn't look as good as the other areas. Still I was able to capture some sweet shots.

The Factory

For some the factory was their least favorite part of the game due to the confusing layout. I never had a problem with it and thought it was cool all the way through. It had some of the coolest and toughest enemies in the game for sure. I remember that I played through this part in one sitting and when I was done I had barely noticed that two hours had gone by.

Mother Miranda

Having defeated the four lords we finally get to meet the one behind all of this. Mother Miranda. We get a lot of answer and also get to witness one of the coolest boss fights I've ever seen in a game. It wasn't necessarily mechanically good but holy smokes did it look good. I spent most of the fight taking pictures like a mad man and I don't regret it for one second.

Do you have any favorites from my showcase? The ones with Mother Miranda and a few of the Factory shots with the hanging Soldats are probably my favorite. It's hard to chose though.


All images in this post are screenshots taken by me.

Sort:  

That's a great looking game, have seen streams on it but not wanting to watch lots as I want to play it myself. Is the game good? Looks it.

Great screenshot showcase for the different parts of the game!

Best game to come out in 2021 so far in my opinion. Had such an awesome time playing through it. Cheers mate!

The Factory is just like Silent Hill 1~3. Love it.

It looks great in every single capture. What are the specs of your PC? I'd like to play it but I'm not sure if my laptop can run it.

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 3.8GHz
Gigabyte B550 Aorus Elite AX V2
Be Quiet! Dark Rock Slim CPU Cooler
ASUS GeForce GTX 1070 DUAL OC
Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000MHz 16GB
Corsair RM850X PSU

Upgraded everything on my pc except the GPU so this is what I'm currently running. Hope you get to play it! Best game released in a long time.

You passed that game faster than a summer flair happens lol. The shots are horrorific and incredible. That mother Miranda looking like an evil angel with six wings takes the price for me.

Well, out of all the people on Hive who started it at release I was the last to finish it. My play time was probably well over average as well due to taking photos all the time. Mother Miranda was the coolest. I only regret not taking the photos of her with more color variants.

Oh well, soon these screenshots will be NFTs, so I'll take the opportunity to download them.

The first image of the village is just amazing, finally I have an image worthy of replacing the Outriders background.

It's like I'm becoming your personal wallpaper provider 😎

The first image of the village was the one I liked the most. I would use it as my wallpaper but that watermark Capcom put on it gives me an internal annoyance that I can't get rid of xd.

Pd: I think you're the only human being on this planet that didn't use photo mode to see Lady Dimitrescu's "back", you know what I'm talking about.

Yeah that watermark was really unnecessary. I wish they made it way more subtle.

I took a lot of pictures of her back but those are for my eyes only.

I just love how some of the details that are deeply impregnated in the Romanian culture, like in this particular image, the icon cover is a thing I think particular to the Balkan area, but it's spread all over Romania.

I haven't played this game yet, but I think I will spend even more hours than you looking for these details, because to me, the attention I've seen so far put in the level design looks like someone was actually here doing research.

That's really cool! I did not know that. There's a lot of awesome details and I'm sure if you're familiar with the area the game is set in there's gonna be even more. You should tell us about more of this stuff if you fint it.
