Last week some information was leaked containing important information on the Resident EVIII game, letting us know what the game will be about. The information came out from the ESRB, which rated the game to be M for mature due to blood and gore, intense violence and strong language, which we all know that is part of a Resident Evil game. The information released along with the rating was the following:
This is a survival-horror game in which players assume the role of Ethan, a man searching for his missing wife in a derelict mansion. From a first-person perspective, players explore the environment and use pistols, shotguns, flamethrowers, explosives and chainsaws to kill mutant creatures. Combat is accompanied by realistic gunfire, screams of pain, and exaggerated blood-splatter effects. As players progress through the story, cutscenes can depict instances of gore and intense acts of violence: a character’s arm dismembered by a chainsaw; a man’s leg taken off at the knee with a shovel; a character impaled through the face with a shovel. Some areas also depict mutilated corpses with exposed organs/viscera. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in the dialogue.
This indicates we will be playing as Ethan (duh), and we can see that the game may be similar to the demo, the text indicates “dismembered by chainsaw”, as I remember there has not been chainsaw enemies in the RE world. This means the game as mentioned previously will be changing, it has been said this is related to the main series, but from what we have seen I don’t see anything that can link them together, except for the umbrella helicopter pictures shown in the demo. There needs to be more information released soon, we are closer every day to launch day and the more information the best in order to decide if we get the game or not. The information released so far is good, but knowing that this game is 5 months away many things can change. What do you think, is this game worth waiting for?
