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.
Here are the other details that were part of the leak:
Ethan will be returning as a playable character.
Resident Evil 8 was tested last year.
It will not be called Resident Evil 8, but will have a “clever title”
The game will be in First-person like RE7.
Gameplay starts in a village leading up to a castle.
The environment will be rural, snowy, and mountainous; possibly Europe.
Regular zombies will be appearing instead of the Molded from RE7.
There is a persistent shadowy “female” enemy that will follow you but will dissipate if shot.
There are also wolf-like creatures that will attack the player in certain areas.
Chris Redfield will also be returning in some capacity.
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.
