Resident Evil Village has already had some chilling trailers and terrifying gameplay footage, but a Resident Evil 8 screenshot featuring Chris Redfield has potentially revealed some shocking new plot details. 

An absolute icon in the world of horror, survival-horror, action-horror, and a multitude of other sub-genres – Resident Evil is a universally known franchise that spans over 20 years and has produced some great games.

But is the series about to throw a huge spanner in the works with regards to one of its characters? If so, it may alter the lore of the game’s forever.

Resident Evil hasn’t ever really been known for its excellence in storytelling. Hammy dialogue and questionable cut-scenes have always stunted any real growth in the long-running story, but Resident Evil 7 took the series back to its roots by providing a proper horror/story experience.

That could be all about to change, though. A screenshot taken from the official Resident Evil Village Steam database shows that one of the most famous/popular characters from the game could be about to have a drastic personality change.

It appears to be an updated logo from the upcoming game, but the intention is clear with it.

The latest teaser is so small, it’s quite grainy but shows those key, lore-changing details.

Is the legendary soldier – Chris Redfield – about to finally become the enemy? After all the trials and tribulations that Chris has overcome and his many tussles with Wesker, Chris may undo all his good work. Does he become a werewolf or some other biological monstrosity?

When the game was first shown off at the PS5 reveal, it was perceived that Chris was potentially now a bad guy.

The reveal trailer ends with Ethan prone on the floor being stared at by Chris wielding a gun. He utters: “Sorry Ethan”, before unloading several bullets into Mia – killing Ethan’s wife before his eyes. Knowing Capcom, the trailer, and this potentially leaked image, are just a ruse, and something deeper lies beneath. We’ll have to wait and see.

Some of the rarest skins in Apex Legends are making a return for the annual Black Friday sale, including Wraith’s famous Airship Assassin skin, cosmetics returning from Legendary Hunt bundles, and more.

It was heavily speculated in the runup to Thanksgiving week that Wraith’s fan-favorite skin would be returning for the second year in a row, and the shop update on November 24 confirmed those leaks and rumors.

Wraith isn’t the only hero getting some of her old skins up for sale again though, Octane’s highly sought-after Jester look will also be back, along with several from the Legendary Hunt themed event all the way back from Season 1.
