On PlayStation and Xbox consoles, you can now preload Resident Evil Village, the eighth main game in the series.

Resident Evil Village file download size
Resident Evil Village file download sizes were also revealed ahead of release by PlayStationFileSizes on Twitter. They are:
- PS4 – 29.4 GB
- Xbox – 27.11 GB
- PS5 – 27.4 GB
- PC – Not yet confirmed
Fortunately, it’s a lot smaller than other modern AAA games, so it shouldn’t take up much space on your hard drive, unless it’s already full of Call of Duty games.
We will confirm the Resident Evil Village PC download size once it is known.
Either way, be sure to check your system to make sure you have enough space for Resident Evil Village. You don’t want to be shocked and have to wait after the game is released.
