Game Overview

The Resident Evil series is one of the most popular horror game franchises in the world, pioneering the definition of “survival horror” as a subgenre with the release of Resident Evil in 1996. Its influence went on to spawn various other media, such as comic books, novels, novelizations, sound dramas, and even animated and live-action films.

Told through an overarching plot that mainly involve the fictional Umbrella Corporation, the games mostly focus on an international pharmaceutical company directly responsible for the outbreak of the series’ staple of zombie hordes and bioweapons that frequently appear in the games.  They have also introduced various protagonists, ranging from trained police and military combatants to ordinary civilians swept into the events of the series.

The series has gone through many major gameplay changes. Beginning with the fixed camera gameplay of the game’s debut on the Playstation, it eventually adopted an over-the-shoulder style with a more action-oriented feel in Resident Evil 4. This change divided opinion among fans of the series, as it was met with both praise and criticism within the community. Resident Evil 7 then marked an anticipated return to its roots of survival horror, as well as being the first game in the series to be ported to eighth generation consoles.

With the announcement of an upcoming entry to the franchise, confirmed as Resident Evil 8, executive producer Jun Takeuchi has stated that plans for the title are “already in motion”. What’s more, it was revealed that RE 8 will have some major differences to its predecessor to essentially “evolve” the survival horror genre itself.

While there has yet to be any manifestation of the game’s release, more word of the upcoming entry to the franchise is certainly something to look forward to in the future.
