Resident Evil 8 Details – What Is The Game’s Story And Setting?
Resident Evil 8 takes place a number of years after Resident Evil 7, and reunites players with Ethan Winters and his wife, Mia. They’ve now relocated to a remote European village – the main location of the game – and things are quickly turned upside down after a confrontation with Chris Redfield, now with Blue Umbrella.
Ethan‘s world suddenly comes crashing down once again when Chris Redfield, an unexpected yet familiar face makes an appearance, setting off a chain of events that sees a distraught Ethan seeking answers to Chris’s shocking actions, and ultimately finding him in a mysterious village.
Enemies include Werewolf-like foes that are briefly glimpse at in the debut trailer, and there’s reports of a witch-like adversary who will follow you around during the game. Capcom is also reportedly offering more chance to explore compared to previous games, and there will be lots of optional content to search for if you want.
Further details reveal that Resident Evil 8 has been in development for over 3.5 years, and the story will apparently wrap up the narrative that began in Resident Evil 7.
