Resident Evil Village is a hot topic right now, most notably for a certain very tall lady named Lady Dimitrescu. But for once, and probably for a short period of time, let’s talk about Resident Evil 4 and how a talented creator has managed to recreate the spooky village from the title to make it look like it’s taken straight from the game.

Youtuber Mojo Swoptops, a games industry artist who loves nothing more than recreating iconic locations in the Far Cry 5 map on the PS4, has showcased their latest project over on their channel that has over 2k subscribers. Recreating this iconic village is no easy task, hence why it took Mojo over four hours to complete the entire thing. Thankfully, they recorded the whole endeavor on how they went about it step by step.

It’s truly incredible to watch how Mojo went from an empty plot in the Far Cry 5 editor to what the end product looks like. Starting off by adding areas of trees, Mojo then moved on to building a Farm compound, a Church with a cemetery, and a tall bell tower within the village. Next, they construct the bonfire in the middle as well as making sure every little detail is taken care of, even right down to bushes, plants, and carts. Towards the end, Mojo changed the weather system to make it as spooky as possible with low hanging clouds and dark and gloomy skies.


It’s really inspiring. Mojo has done an incredible job at recreating the village from Resident Evil 4. I wonder when Resident Evil Village arrives, will they try and recreate Castle Dimitrescu? Make sure to give them a follow over on
YouTube and also you can see what they are up to on Instagram where they have a huge array of images from past projects.

Back in April last year, we heard that Capcom would be trying their hand at remaking Resident Evil 4 and that the game was in development. Moving into the present day and it seems that the title is undergoing some big behind-the-scenes changes that include the studio’s role being “significantly reduced” due to disagreements over its direction according to individuals with knowledge of the project.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

Resident Evil 4 remake has been reportedly delayed as it undergoes these changes which could mean that it might not release for quite some time yet. Thankfully, we have Resident Evil Village to look forward to as the title will release for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC on May 7, 2021.
