Resident Evil 8 Might Be the Darkest and Most Gruesome RE Yet

A Capcom insider has shared some details on Resident Evil 8, stating that it will be the most gruesome and dark game in the RE series yet.

After many years in the dumps of the video game ecosystem, the Resident Evil franchise has revived itself has not just one of the best survival horror franchises on the market, but just one of the best franchises to pop into. Resident Evil 7 was the return to horror themes that fans had been chanting for for quite some time. The unannounced Resident Evil 8 might be taking it a step further.

Long time Capcom insider Dusk Golem shared some details on the next game. They stated that it will be by far the “darkest and most gruesome RE yet.” They also replied to a comment stating that the game will include some of the most incredibly disturbing enemy designs that have ever come to the RE series.

There have been some other interesting details about the game in the past that have surfaced such as it being in first-person again, and introducing new elements like Hallucinations and other new stuff to the series. It has also been reported that Resident Evil 8 might actually be titled Resident Evil 8 Village and will release sometime in 2021.

Resident Evil 7 was exactly what the franchise needed. It showed that the series can still be the horror kings of the video game industry and gave us fans what we had wanted for years. If they continue to build off their creations from that game, I am positive that 8 will be even as terrifying and fun as 7. I am just hoping that the game will come to VR platforms again!
