You’re stuck in a village, there are vicious-looking werewolf people, and Chris Redfield is seemingly a very bad dude: welcome to Resident Evil 8, known as Resident Evil Village. We got another look at the game during Sony’s latest PS5 showcase, and although the trailer didn’t reveal much in the way of new story details, it did give off some serious Resident Evil 4 vibes.
You can check out the trailer from the showcase below, which seems to pick up where our last look at Resident Evil 8 left off–immediately after Chris Redfield seemingly kills off a key character from Resident Evil 7. Although we know this story seems to start with and revolve around this character’s death, the latest trailer gives the serious sense that they’ve still got a big role to play. Ethan, the protagonist of the last game, is also back to survive more monster-filled mysteries.
At the center of this new trailer is a voice-over from Ethan’s wife Mia as she tells a folklore-like story about a mother and daughter who head into the woods to gather berries for the girl’s father. During their hunt, the girl gets ahead of the mother and disappears into the woods. We don’t hear more than that, but it certainly sounds like nothing good happens after the girl vanishes into the forest. Given that the tale is cut with images of hairy, monster-like humans and occult-looking symbols, chances are pretty good you’re going to be dealing with whatever she met out there.
