The fact that Resident Evil Village is capable of ray tracing has been known since the release of the Maiden demo on PS5. As the experts noted Digital Foundry, the effect is weak on the Sony console, and the reflection resolution is not too high. Resident Evil Village release is expected on May 7 this year for PC (Steam), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S. Pre-order collection began shortly after the release date was announced.
