Capcom’s first major release of 2021, Resident Evil Village, is one of the most anticipated games of the year. The game will be released on all of the major platforms like the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X and PC.

With Resident Evil Village’s release right around the corner, people who pre-loaded the game onto their respective consoles are probably wondering when the game will get unlocked for them so that they can fully relish the marvels of Lady Dimitrescu.

In this article, we’ll be listing down the Resident Evil Village unlock times for each region.

If you’ve pre-ordered Resident Evil Village digitally, you have the ability to pre-load it onto your system so you can play it as soon as it gets released (unlocked).

These download sizes are surprisingly small considering that this is a AAA game made for next-gen consoles.
