Why deprive yourself of a great game? I don't get it. It's frequently on sale. Surely 25 bucks wouldn't break your bank?
No, it wouldn't break the bank. Of course not. But why pay for something when I can play other games for free? And RE Village will come to Game Pass at some point. I'm a VERY patient man. And I'm so busy with other Game Pass games for the foreseeable future, I don't NEED to pay for RE.

major nelson already confirmed via Twitter that this was a mistake and they currently have no plans to add village to gamepass
Don't put too much stock in that. We've heard this song and dance before.

There was a rumor that Scarlet Nexus was coming to Game Pass. Bandai denied it. A month later it was on Game Pass.
There was a rumor that Mass Effect was coming to Game Pass. EA denied it. A month later it was on Game Pass.

I think there might be other examples. These are the two I recall. No one is going to confirm it until it's formally announced on Game Pass. They don't want sales to dry up as people wait. If it's coming in May expect an announcement a week or two before. Not a month or more!

Okay. I'm a fan of the series so I didn't want to wait myself. I'm glad I didn't. Heres hoping you get to play it.

Yeah for sure. I was a bit skeptical about re 7 going first person but I gave it a shot one it came up game pass and really enjoyed it! I'm sure I'll enjoy village too, but not enough to pay for it. There are only a few titles I will pay for now. Game pass just has too much content that keeps me busy!
 
Please don't feel like I'm trying to be a stooge, a fanboy, or a gatekeeper here, but I think new RE games and their storylines in general, absolutely suck. It's been this way for a while, in fact.

I felt like with RE8, Capcom just *KNEW* this wasn't really a properly done survival horror game. They basically tried to copy RE4, because the beginning portion in the village is just like when you encounter the Los Illuminados cult in RE4. Then of course, you traverse through a castle, a lake, and later on, end up in this weird ass factory, all the while being helped by a vendor, named Duke. It's possibly because Capcom wants to build up momentum for the RE4 remake.

I mean, the game ain't bad. But it doesn't really "feel" like a RE game from yesteryear, besides of course, RE4 (which I consider to be somewhat overrated). RE4 isn't all that terrifying. But some enemies are scary.

In my opinion, these games always just feel like they are supposed to be these funny adventure games nowadays, with the RE name somehow involved. Plus, Capcom copied other games before for a quick buck.
