Resident Evil Village (or Resident Evil 8) is the return of our favorite survival horror saga: this installment follows the terrifying story of Ethan Winters. In the previous opus, Ethan had to face all kinds of enemies and misfortunes to try to get his wife back, Mia. After tons of effort and suffering in the Bakers' house, it seemed that they were finally going to be able to have a quiet life together. However, as you have undoubtedly imagined, this is not the case. In Resident Evil 8: Village a new nightmare awaits... Will you be able to save them?

Story

The story of Resident Evil turns around the Umbrella corporation, supposedly a pharmaceutical company but actually responsible for various experiments with biological weapons. After a series of events, a dangerous virus was released in the Arklay Mountains, causing chaos and countless deaths. In every installment, we follow different characters that are trying to survive and solve things, but the situation only seems to get worse, with the successive appearance of new and more powerful types of viruses. This is how we got to the events of Resident Evil 7, where Ethan Winters comes to the rescue of his wife Mia, who has been missing for 3 years. The protagonist ends up saving her with the help of Chris Redfield and Blue Umbrella, an organization made of former members of the original company who now want to fix the damage. And this is where the adventure of Resident Evil Village begins, with a special place in the plot for Ethan and Mia’s daughter, Rose.
