Chris Redfield returns in Resident Evil VIII, darker than ever before

June 11, 2020 1 min read

The rumours were true. Chris Redfield is back, apparently rocking a terrifying new attitude, in the next entry to Capcom's legendary survival horror franchise, Resident Evil.

Resident Evil VIII, as officially revealed during today's PS5: Future of Gaming presentation, looks slathered in rural, gothic horror, with a return to the first-person perspective of Resident Evil VII, and a strange, almost turn-of-the-century aesthetic. Looks like fans of the brickwork villages and deep forests of Resi 4 are going to be very happy.

After several minutes of grim and stylish terror - featuring new faces, locales, and twisted new creatures - the preview ends with the sudden arrival of long-time series protagonist Chris Redfield... seemingly a shadow of the hero we once knew.

Resident Evil VIII is currently in development for PS5. The horror returns in 2021.
