If you were curious about the role of Chris in the story, or other gameplay details like the opening that has been reported to resemble Resident Evil 4, there is some interesting new information to sort through here.
There was also an interview with the producers of Resident Evil 8, Tsuyoshi Kanda, and Pete Fabiano. They confirm that it is indeed Chris who takes Ethan to the mysterious mountain village.
The producers don’t go into detail regarding the “Merchant” look-alike in Resident Evil 8, but they do say that Ethan’s life will depend on it. They also hint that the villagers might also recite prayers in order to protect themselves from danger. Regarding the dangerous creatures, they mention that while they can’t speak a language, they will behave like a pack/swarm and can also wield weapons.
Resident Evil 8 is scheduled to launch for the PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC in 2021.
