Where's the cheapest place to pre-order Resident Evil Village?

Meet the Village… people?

Resident Evil 8, officially known as Resident Evil Village, is out on May 7th 2021, and looks to be taking matters in a more classic horror direction, with vampires, werewolves and gothic castles with very witchy overtones. Still, if your pockets are more full of green herbs and weird keys than they are full of money, don't worry! We'll show you the cheapest places to pre-order Resident Evil 8 so you can experience the horror for yourself.

For what it's worth, early trailers and info from the Resident Evil Showcase seem to indicate that Village will play similarly to the well-received Resident Evil 7, with a first-person perspective and an emphasis on caution. In fact, it seems we'll be playing as Ethan Winters from the previous game, making his way through a snowy European village filled with monsters after burly zombie-killer Chris Redfield pulls him out of his peaceful life. God knows what advantage an everyman like Ethan has over somebody with actual military training or expertise, but presumably, that'll be explained in the actual game. There's also a tall vampire lady who the internet has gone... weird over. But I guess that's the internet for you.

Resident_Evil_8_Collectors_Edition

Right now there's been three versions of the game announced - the standard edition, the Deluxe Edition "Trauma Pack", and the larger Collector's Edition. All three come with a set of pre-order bonuses for players to enjoy, as well as features that add to the game and outside it, depending on which one you buy.

Resident Evil Village Standard Edition

This is the no-bells-and-whistles-version, in which you get the game and the pre-order bonuses. We've laid out the best prices we could find below, but of course we'll update them as more details are announced.

Resident Evil Village and Resident Evil 7 Complete Bundle

Of course, for those who missed out on the phenomenal RE7, you can always get the Complete Bundle. That includes Resident Evil Village Deluxe Edition and Resident Evil 7 Gold Edition (which includes all the DLC). Considering that Village features Ethan Winters, the character who was first introduced in 7, it might be a good way to catch up. Or you should play it just because 7 is a pretty solid survival-horror game. Either way, grab your own copy of the bundle below:
