Top-of-the-line shock bulletins of January’s Showcase stream was the supply of a free demo for the sport.

Resident Evil: Maiden is a free non-combat demo that is accessible completely on PS5. Just like the notorious Kitchen demo from RE7, it is not truly a slice of the particular sport – as an alternative it is a separate story set inside the fort setting that can seem in the primary sport. As an alternative of taking part in as Ethan Winters, you may play as an unnamed lady – the ‘maiden’ – making an attempt to flee the fort.

Watch the trailer

We’ve three trailers for the sport thus far. The primary is the official reveal trailer, which takes its candy time confirming that this even is Resident Evil Eight in any respect:

The second trailer offers us extra spooky scene-setting, and a bit gameplay, but in addition a primary have a look at what seems to be some very sinister Tim Burton-inspired stop-motion-style animation:

The third trailer, dropped through the Resident Evil Showcase, offers us a extra detailed have a look at the fort that seems to be the sport’s second fundamental space – together with the now notorious Tall Girl, apparently formally known as Girl Dimitrescu.

What in regards to the gameplay and plot?

Leaks earlier than the sport’s launch prompt that Resident Evil Eight began life as a spin-off within the Revelations sub-franchise, and the marginally wild tone of the trailers suggests that may properly be true.

The sport picks up with Ethan and Mia from Resident Evil 7, now settled down for a fortunately ever after till Chris Redfield rocks up once more to wreck issues. He drags Ethan off to a rural village the place issues look… bizarre.

Some followers speculated that Chris’s new design and odd behaviour meant he is likely to be an imposter, however the devs themselves have confirmed that that is the actual Chris in an interview with Famitsu, translated into English by Resident Evil researcher Alex Aniel.

The sport is first-person, very similar to Resident Evil 7, however reportedly contains a better concentrate on fight and exploration, a bit extra in-line with the opposite mainline video games. Throughout a developer diary revealed throughout Tokyo Sport Present 2020 the sport’s producers confirmed that it is supposed to really feel extra open than 7, with bigger areas to discover and extra of a way that gamers ought to have the ability to discover their very own routes and their very own options to challenges and puzzles.

The identical dev diary confirms that Ethan’s story was actually the start line for the sport, which asks what kind of life he would have after the occasions of seven – and presumably how properly he’ll deal with being thrown again into the nightmare.

The later Showcase stream provides an additional trace that Ethan is now searching for his lacking daughter, whereas throwing in our greatest look but on the sport’s fight. Not an excessive amount of has modified, however the primary new addition is a ‘Guard’ motion that blocks (some) enemy assaults.

The second trailer doubles down on the creepy Japanese European vibes, particularly in a folks story that attracts closely on creepy stop-motion animation classics like The Nightmare Earlier than Christmas. This storybook is seemingly supposed to maintain the assorted plot parts clear for gamers, so it appears like this is likely to be sometimes convoluted Resident Evil fare, with the guide there to maintain issues easy sufficient for newer gamers to observe, with the sport as an entire supposed to be simpler to get into.

It is also clearly breaking away from zombies as soon as once more, with werewolves and what appear to be witches among the many new nasties to cope with. Within the Famitsu interview talked about above the devs verify that these beasts are sensible sufficient to hunt in packs and use weapons.

Between the brand new enemies and the village setting we’re getting robust Resident Evil four vibes, which might solely be a superb factor.

That is proper all the way down to the inclusion of a brand new service provider character – the Duke – together with the return of RE4’s Tetris-y stock administration system, now supplemented by primary crafting to create therapeutic gadgets and ammo.

The fundamental construction of the sport additionally seems to borrow from RE4, with discrete areas every capped off by a boss struggle – the fort and tall lady seem like the setting and boss of the sport’s second space. She mentions that Ethan has already escaped her brother – presumably the chief antagonist of the primary space, the village – and speaks on the cellphone to somebody known as Mom Miranda, who might be the sport’s massive unhealthy.

RE:Verse multiplayer mode
