Mrs. Dimitresk and her castle have already been introduced in detail, so let’s take a look at what other lords and their hideouts look like in this exclusive release.
Karl Heisenberg and Heisenberg factories
Karl Heisenberg can be seen in multiple trailers. He is an engineer who lives in a family factory. Heisenberg holds a giant iron hammer in one hand and a cigar casually in the other. Heisenberg’s design, with sunglasses, a hat and a leather jacket, seems quite extravagant for someone in a remote Eastern European village. Takano says his appearance, like Lady Dimitresk, was inspired by the fashion of the 1960s.
Turning the act of killing into a game, the Heisenberg torture session at the beginning of the game shows a good example of what this character can do. I barely survived his game in my field, so just thinking about what’s waiting at the Heisenberg factory makes me tremble.
Compared to the rest of the village, the factory appears to be in sync with the times and modern equipment is available. Another aspect that differentiates factories is the fact that they are not covered in snow. The factory is at the northeastern edge of the map, probably at a lower altitude.
Salvatore Morrow and Morrow Reservoir
The design of Salvatore Morrow was inspired by the Gothic horror merman. Compared to other humanoid lords, Morrow looks like your typical Resident Evil creature. Morrow hides most of his appearance with a long robe. While I was playing the game, the character appeared temporarily, and I got into a scene where the main character, Ethan, was at the mercy of the four main characters. “We designed Morrow with the concept of creating the most repulsive characters on the planet,” says Takano.
Morrow lives near a reservoir near an outdated fishing village. There are two windmills near the game map, one shown in the image above. The windmill has a ladder, suggesting that the player may be able to climb all the time.
The game map also shows an illustration of a giant whale-like monster in the reservoir. This is also easy to find in the latest trailers. Takano states that the lake he saw when traveling to Eastern Europe for research was frozen, but the team eventually frozen the lake because it was difficult for local creatures to survive in such situations. Refused to be included in the game.
Donna Benevient and House Benevient
Donna Beneviento operates a doll called Angie. All of Donna’s face-covering black mourning remains a mystery. Another question that remains is how long Angie is alive. Director Morimasa Sato says that when he introduced the game to a Capcom colleague in the United States, many were surprised that the duo felt the most horrifying of all the Lords.
“In America, people’s reaction to dolls was pretty strong,” says Sato. “Of course, this made me happy, but as a Japanese, it surprised me that they thought the dolls were so scary.”
Takano says that in Angie’s design, the team wanted something that wasn’t purely scary and wanted to have an immediate impact, but I’m also happy that the reaction was this way. .. Donna and Angie live in Haus Benevient, on the outskirts of the village. No visitors come. Sato hinted that House Benevent is, in many respects, an evolution of the horror element used in Resident Evil 7. And you don’t have to wait long to see what the connection will be.
Resident Evil Village will be released on May 7th. Be sure to check out the detailed preview of the first 5 hours of the game. If you are interested in the final generation version, please watch the gameplay video of PS4 Pro. If you can’t wait for Lady Dimitrescu to shed blood, don’t miss the towering villain feature.
