Coming back to the gameplay, the game is going to be played in a village full of combat, puzzles to solve, and exploration.

But the exact location is yet to be revealed, the location ( Village ) we are mention is based on the trailer.

In the trailer, they also revealed many new enemies like werewolves like man, An old woman, vampires, A giant enemy coming toward the player with an axe, and I am sure that there are still some amazing things to be revealed.

who’s name was Eveline. Then after Mia and Ethan busted out the plantation and find a way to escape the house.

Then they found a peaceful place and happy life to live on, but suddenly a night, after a long time Chris Redfield shows up.

He forced Ethan to go into a new nightmare. Ethan also going after some answers that why Redfield is behaving like this and many more answers. Now, this next line is quite confusing, I mean Redfield shooted Mia.

Yes, the person who saved Ethan at the end of RE7. But still, there is no clear idea why Chris has no chill in RE8. As far as I can see it, Capcom is trying to give villainous turn to the most enduring stars of the series. 

In RE7 Chris was working as an Umbrella corporation agent, but in Resident Evil 8: Village, it seems that his new role could be more harmful than it is showing in the trailer. 

And a second thought that comes to my mind is, maybe Capcom is trying to give an exciting taste before the launching so that it can impact the market.

Honestly, there are so many questions that started raising after the game trailer launch. Which won’t be solved until the game will launch in the market.

The reason why Ethan’s life crashing down because Redfield set up a chain of events.

Now Ethan started looking for the answer to Chris’s actions and eventually finding him in a strange village, all these events will take place in Europe.
