After months of speculation and rumor, Resident Evil 8 was officially announced today during Sony’s Playstation 5 live event.
Much of what we had heard from leaks seems to be spot on. In the trailer, we see a snowy European hamlet, nestled in the mountains. As it progresses, we see the protagonist being hunted by some sort of beast.
Throughout, we only really get a few glimpses of the who and why. However, it’s clear that something is going on in this seemingly peaceful, snowy village.
We eventually see that the beast chasing the hero is a werewolf-like creature. In the end, we see Chris himself, seemingly executing someone before the protagonist’s very eyes.
Almost everything we had heard was true.
Hopefully, the trailer will be on its own soon enough, and we can pick it apart.
