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.
