The new narrative trailer reveals more about Resident Evil 8’s titular village, which isn’t like Resident Evil 4’s den of villainy. There appear to be seemingly innocent villagers trying to live their lives here, while a figure named Mother Miranda appears to be important within the village. And it wouldn’t be a Resident Evil game if there weren’t some references to the Umbrella Corporation, either.
Check out the new trailer below.
As previously revealed, Ethan is searching for his baby daughter who was seemingly kidnapped by Chris Redfield. His rescue mission takes him to a village overrun by werewolves and vampires while the average citizens are hiding or trying to avoid capture. Resident Evil Village definitely seems to be keeping with the more supernatural theme this time around, though considering Umbrella’s involvement somehow you know there’s some biochemical component to it as well.
The trailer ends with Ethan meeting Chris in a house. Ethan says Chris “killed Mia,” signaling a confrontation between the two heroes. Chris’s role in Village is still very much a mystery, so who knows exactly how rogue he’s gone by the time Village takes place.
