Ethan Winters does not look like he is in for a good time in Resident Evil 8 as he battles mystic forces, as well as a rather intimidating Chris Redfield. In a previous trailer, Chris was shown to have murdered Mia, leading Ethan to seek answers. His hunt led him to the Village.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard marked a return to form for Capcom and the Resident Evil franchises after a series of misguided sequels. Capcom is looking to capitalize on this wave of momentum with several successful remakes under its belt.
Following up on the excellent Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is going to be extremely important. If early footage, gameplay, and trailers are anything to buy, it seems like Capcom has really stepped up the game.
Resident Evil 8: Village will reportedly include cooking and survival mechanics that require Ethan to maintain his health by hunting down animals. Thus ensuring that the players are always on their toes, which is exactly what horror-survival games strive for.
