Resident Evil 8 is a multi-platform release coming in 2021, with more details coming later this month, a new report suggests.
Twitter user AethesticGamer aka Dusk Golem, someone who correctly detailed Resident Evil 3 ahead of official word from Capcom, alleges that Resident Evil 8 started off as a Switch exclusive Resident Evil Revelations 3 before being reworked. Moreover, the user says that RE8 will feature “occultism” and “hallucinations” that “may sound Silent Hill-esque to some.”
“Hell, the one gameplay sequence in the game that’s been more fully leaked due to the Ambassador tests is a sequence where you’re in a village with multiple routes trying to make your way to a Castle, being attacked by Beast Men, zombies in armor with swords, and a Witch that laughs a lot.”
Moreover, AethesticGamer alleges that select Resident Evil Ambassadors have played a demo of the game, and in it Resident Evil 7‘s Ethan Winter is joined by longtime series protagonist Chris Redfield. The user says that the two characters may be stand-ins for other protagonists.
“This will be breaking this month with more details later,” the user concludes.
