Biohazard Declassified is reporting several details of Resident Evil 8. These details were taken from a playtest of the game and has been confirmed by other people in the industry. The game will apparently not be called Resident Evil 8, but will be the next mainline game in the Resident Evil series.
The biggest point of the game will be that it will continue the first person nature of Resident Evil 7. It’ll start in a village leading up to a castle, the environments will take place in a rural, snowy part of Europe.
With Resident Evil 3 releasing this year, it’s unclear when we can expect to see this game release, but with a Resident Evil game releasing yearly for the last three years, it’s possible we could see the release next year.
