Report: Resident Evil 8 Will Also be First-Person

Capcom is currently working on a remake of Resident Evil 3. But there haven’t been any details about the next mainline Resident Evil game following 2017’s Resident Evil 7. Until now at least, in which a new report suggests Capcom will return to the first-person format for the next horror entry. According to the YouTube channel Residence of Evil, Resident Evil 8 will follow in Resident Evil 7’s footsteps and keep the first-person perspective. Eurogamer has heard similar details from sources familiar with Capcom. [widget path="global/article/imagegallery" parameters="legacyId=20100732&captions=true"] Resident Evil 7’s first-person perspective was a novel approach to a series that has mostly stayed in the third-person. It also mostly worked, giving Resident Evil a fresh take after years of what fans would consider missteps. Recently, Capcom has largely spent its time working on Resident Evil remakes and those have reverted to the series’ traditional third-person perspective. Games like Resident Evil 2 and the upcoming Resident Evil 3 remake all utilize the classic perspective, albeit on the shiny RE Engine. Other details from Residence of Evil include how Resident Evil 8 will mark the return of RE 7 protagonist Ethan Winters as well as Chris Redfield (presumably with his new design). There are also some details about potential enemies including some non-zombies like werewolves and female ghosts that chase you through a castle and village environment. IGN has reached out to Capcom asking for a comment, but the company declined to comment on rumors.
