Although it's just about a three-minute trailer, it is clear that this instalment will continue from where Resident Evil 7 was left. The game is set a few years after the events of Resident Evil 7. You will find Ethan and Mia in a happy ever sort of way. The couple will be reunited to combat and encounter a new evil. With some incredibly successful iteration, this game is popularizing the survival-horror genre.
If you are tired of third-person Resi games, here’s a sign of relief for you. The series is set to return to first-person in Resident Evil 8. It is clear from the trailer that Players will once again be facing the mutated dangers from Ethan Winters. This will better emulate the game experience on PlayStation. The return of the first-person perspective will definitely bring a visceral edge to combat. It is quite obvious from the Resident Evil Village trailer that it contains some RE4 vibes. This gives an interesting opportunity to mix the franchise’s action and survival horror elements to create a unique experience.
Chris Redfield is also back with a pivotal role in the game’s plot. This seems to be good news for fans but not for Ethan. Although we are not aware of the full context. But in the trailer, it can be seen Chris is murdering Mia in front of Ethan. In the nearly 25 years since the debut, Redfield look has evolved many times. Like every other season, his outlook has changed yet again. He is looking bigger, scarier and older. With a comically thick neck and boxy silhouette, this new version of Chris Redfield is bigger than ever. With Capcom Taking the franchise into new water, Resident Event 8 or (Village) certainly bring something new and terrifyingly refreshing into the universe. Chris Redfield is expected to end up being the game’s main antagonist.
As Resident Evil 8 (also known as Resident Evil village) was one of the most exciting titles announced during the Sony’s PlayStation 5 Reveal, it will be interesting to see if Capcom manages to meet the increasing expectations. If it does so, undoubtedly it would be another success for the hugely popular resident Evil Franchise,
