Resident Evil 8 gameplay
Although we’ve got to get a big slice of Resident Evil 8 gameplay, it seems to be another first-person Resident Evil affair, based in some kind of village.
The exact location is yet to be revealed, but it looks like the British countryside to us. However, rumors have suggested it was based on cults, and it’s definitely got that sort of vibe from what we’ve seen so far. Along with the werewolves of course.

Is it Resident Evil 8 or Resident Evil Village?
Technically, both names are correct, It’s either you call it Resident Evil 8 or Resident Evil Village. In Resident Evil Village, the number 8 is also in the title.
In the game’s logo, the gold coloring highlights the Roman numeral “VIII” (8) as a subtle means to indicate this is the eighth main Resident Evil game.
