Rumor: Resident Evil 8 to be called Resident Evil 8: Village

We recently informed you regarding some new details of the upcoming Resident Evil 8. According to BHd, the title will feature the subtitle, Village.  This is possibly a working title, meaning it could end up being different.

BHd also provided some information about the characters. First of all, the protagonist will probably be the same guy from Resident Evil 7. You know, Ethan, that guy no one knows. Chris Redfield is also back, and he will have an integral part in the game.

Chris appears in flashbacks surrounding Ethan and his girlfriend. You know, Mia, that crazy bitch that stabbed you and cut off your freaking hand. Thank god for convenient surgical staplers.

Ethan and Mia now have a baby, but it is unclear what the baby has to do with the narrative. Also, Chris doesn’t look the same as before. This time he looks less heroic than he usually does. He can be seen shooting at Ethan and Mia in a flashback sequence. Don’t worry, I’m pretty sure the baby survives.

Lastly, it looks like Capcom is playing with the concept of inventory management yet again. According to BHd, Capcom is testing both a Resident Evil 7 style UI alongside a Resident Evil 4 style.

So maybe Resident Evil 4 is also getting a remake? Maybe, but until then take everything with a grain of salt. We will make sure to let you know if anything else comes up.

Thanks BHd.
