Store leak indicates disclosure at PS5 event

A retail store confirms the rumors already circulating about the eagerly awaited Resident Evil 8. Has the shop been mistaken and listed the PS4 game too early?

Update by Mandy Strebe on June 9th, 1:02 p.m .:

It looks like a German has Retail store now accidentally listed the upcoming Resident Evil 8: Village. The leak is a PS4 game, which is listed as an uncut version. A user on Twitter noticed this and shared the following message:

The PS4 cover The new part of the series looks very promising and definitely makes you want more. This leak could be related to Sony's postponed event for the PS5. This should actually take place on June 4th.

It has been speculated for some time that Resident Evil 8 is among the Launch games of the upcoming console could belong. Since the event is primarily intended to focus on games, it is quite possible that Sony's plan was also to unveil RE8 at The Future of Gaming.

According to the store page, the game is said to be the "Be the darkest and most brutal expansion of the franchise". The only inconsistency with this leak is the listing as a PS4 game. However, it could also mean that the new Resident Evil part for both the PS4 and the PS5 could appear. The shared information should, however, be used with caution, as is so common with leaks.

Until the unveiling, you can reminisce about Resident Evil 7:

Resident Evil 7: Bizarre statistics on global gaming behavior

The expected PS5 event will take place soon, hopefully we'll get an answer as to whether Resident Evil 8: Village will be officially confirmed soon.

Original message from April 8th, 12:28 pm:

Resident Evil 8: Village should be the title of the next horror game in the series, based on Resident Evil 7. Like the video game portal BiohazardCast a mysterious email was sent to the editors, with new information about the Background of the game, the Release period, the Characters and some more. First of all: The The source behind the email is unknown, but lets in Tweet of the notorious AestheticGamer sneaker suspect that it is not entirely molded manure.

As you all know, you should still enjoy the following details with caution and – maybe – a pinch of anticipation. For an attractive overview, I have arranged everything in a list:

  • Title: Resident Evil 8 Village
    • The first letters of "Village" could mark the Roman numeral 8
  • Antagonist: A witch who follows you wherever you go, but is sometimes invisible
    • She works with insects, similar to Marguerite from Resident Evil 7
    • If you defeat it, it will dissolve into a bunch of insects (which will certainly be very pleasant)
  • Characters: Among others Chris Redfield, Ethan Winters, Mia Winters and a child of Ethan and Mia
    • Chris Redfield is said to appear in memory sequences, as is the baby
    • His role here is ambiguous and not only heroic – he is said to have broken into the couple's house and shot them
  • Setting: As other leaks have suggested, RE8 is set to play in a European location
  • Gameplay: Hallucinations make it difficult to distinguish between reality and fantasy
    • Inventory management should either be based on RE7 or RE4
  • Release period: Spring 2021

Much of the information fits into the picture that many leaks of a possible Resident Evil 8 have painted over the past few weeks. Nothing is set in stone, however, because developer Capcom has yet to say anything relevant to the eighth part of the series.

New leak to Resident Evil 8: Release 2021 and first-person mode

It may be time for Capcom to drop a few official words about Resident Evil 8 – then at least the time of the endless leaks would be over. As we reported below, the next Resident Evil 2021 is due to be released; the information comes from Twitter Leaker AestethicGamer. He now confirms that this was actually about Resident Evil 8 on his Twitter channel.

According to him, the game has been under construction since 2016, but only under the title of a third Resident Evil Revelation part. For whatever reason, management eventually decided to convert that project into Resident Evil 8: So a new Resident Evil that is closely related to RE7. Simply because Resident Evil 7 protagonist Ethan Winters should appear, as well as the entire game again First person perspective will indulge.

If you’re not tired of the leaks, check out what AestheticGamer writes:

"'Resident Evil 2021' is Resident Evil 8, but it wasn't always RE8. During much of the development it existed as Revelations 3. "

Also interesting:

"Ethan and Chris were in the Ambassador demo, but I heard afterwards that they were 'changed'. I do not know what this means. But I just assume that the main character is any of them. Maybe Ethan. "

AethaticGamer noted a few days ago that we will soon have one anyway Announcement from Capcom may expect. So it means – again – to wait.

Next Resident Evil is said to be a controversial reinvention of the genre, says Leak

As you prepare for Resident Evil 3 remake, developer Capcom may soon have more up its sleeve: the infamous Twitter Leaker AestheticGamer has a few words about next resident evil dropped and it went Not for a new remake:

"Oh, to hell with it, I'll tell you a little more about this one 2021 resident evil game, and don't talk about it until RE3 Remake has been out for a while. On the 2021 RE game has been working since 2016, and when it comes out, it was about four to four and a half years in development (the main phase of development was then three to three and a half years). The Development is very similar to Resident Evil 3, not the remake, but I’ll only go on with what I mean later. The Announcement for this will take place very soon, and it is by far the biggest jump away from the seriesthat there has ever been. "

So the next Resident Evil should be not a remakebut a new part – whatever it is. According to AestheticGamer, the Appear in 2021, just like that announcement shouldn't be long in coming.

Resident Evil 3 Remake is the hell ride you wanted:Read in our test how effective Resident Evil 3 Remake will teach you to fear.

But what could he have meant by commenting on Resident Evil 3? There was one feature in the entire Resident Evil series that only in the third part occurred – and was not included in the remake: Live Action Selection. Resident Evil 3 has confronted you with situations in which you had to decide during action sequences: Do you avoid an attack by rolling away or jumping into a pit? The decisions hadInfluence on the situation, but also on the end of the game.

It is also interesting that AestheticGamer explains in another tweet about the topic, how different the ominous new Resident Evil should be:

“It is going to be so different that I think a lot of people will be upset when it is announced – but they should be more open. Internal tests and the like have shown that it is a high quality game and I am really looking forward to it. ”

Are we talking about a multiplayer game with live service? I mean do we? Because when players are upset, it's mostly because of single-player series that turn their backs on their legacy and instead head to more lucrative beaches. Should AestheticGamer keep with all the right we will find out very, very soon anyway.

Games in 2020: releases you shouldn't miss

Just a spin-off?

While some sources report that the information is certainly related to Resident Evil 8 thinks AestheticGamer (Dusk Golem) that there is also one another possibility gives.

“Me and the people who shared the RE8 rumor talked about it a few days ago because I'm sure it's more of a game that Capcom started about six months ago. I think Capcom did a test with the fans to see what it was about. I didn't know anything specific about werewolves and witches until we talked about it. The Chris thing and the B-Movie Monster story go very well with two other things that I know of.

However, I am sure that this is not the final direction RE8 is going. It could also be a side game. I know for sure that this is NOT the final version of RE8. However, it is not uncommon for ideas that are believed to be dead to be taken and transformed into something else, which is how Revelations 2 was created, ”says AestheticGamer.

So far, Capcom has not voiced on the rumors, so wait and drink tea. What do you say about the information? Are they believable and do they make you curious? Please write us your opinion in the comments.
