Resident Evil Village Camera Mode Confirmed in PS4 Pro Footage

Resident Evil Village Camera

Resident Evil Village camera mode got teased in newly surfaced PS4 Pro footage, not to mention Lady Dimitrescu got some screen time as well.

The five minute block of gameplay (via IGN) eventually shows off the 9-foot 6-inch Lady Dimitrescu and the now-infamous scene where she completely trashes some furniture in the room where she talks with the mysterious Mother Miranda. In case you missed it, you can find the previous trailer and footage in our previous report here.

When the in-game cutscene rolls, the player is prompted with the option to skip or launch photo mode, meaning you’ll be able to capture the gargantuan murderous mommy-figure in a full photo mode. The majority of the footage shows off protagonist Ethan as he skulks about the Castle Dimitrescu underbelly, with the player frequently missing shots at the hooded creatures.

Resident Evil Village camera mode being added to the game begs the question of what other extra features will Capcom be adding to the hotly-anticipated sequel, and will they focus on visuals and “viral” media, like the cult following Lady Dimitrescu now has?

Here’s the new gameplay:

You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.

Experience survival horror like never before in the eighth major installment in the storied Resident Evil franchise – Resident Evil Village.

Set a few years after the horrifying events in the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 7 biohazard, the all-new storyline begins with Ethan Winters and his wife Mia living peacefully in a new location, free from their past nightmares. Just as they are building their new life together, tragedy befalls them once again.


  • First-Person Action – Players will assume the role of Ethan Winters and experience every up-close battle and terrifying pursuit through a first-person perspective.
  • Familiar Faces and New Foes – Chris Redfield has typically been a hero in the Resident Evil series, but his appearance in Resident Evil Village seemingly shrouds him in sinister motives. A host of new adversaries inhabiting the enigmatic village will relentlessly hunt Ethan and hinder his every move as he attempts to make sense of the new nightmare he finds himself in.
  • A Living, Breathing Village – More than just a mysterious backdrop for the horrifying events that unfold in the game, the village is a character in its own right with mysteries for Ethan to uncover and terrors to escape from.

Resident Evil Village launches May 7th on Windows PC (via Steam), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and now Google Stadia. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will support upgrades to the next generation.
