Resident Evil 8 Discussion (No Spoilers)
I just pre-ordered it today. Comes out Friday. I loved RE7 and the story in RE8 is a continuation of that so I’m really looking forward to it.

Also, if y’all are looking at pre-ordering it, Best Buy is the way to go. You get the game, a steelbook, and some digital items for $59.99 on PS4.

Edit: It’s really good so far

Yep, one of my most hyped releases of the year. Everything looks bigger and better than 7. Huge sprawling map with varied locations, way more robust weapons and upgrade system, more varied areas, bigger scale and scope.

Haven’t played any of the demos or watched anything past the initial trailer. Saw the leaked map and said “yep I’m in”

Can’t wait

Preordered on the series x.

Planning on visiting New Zealand Thursday afternoon to do some early lycan/vampire slaying.

I played both demos that released on the PS4. Neither one really spoiled anything but it was kind of just a preview of the village area and the castle. It looks incredible. I can’t imagine how it would look and feel in person on a next gen console

re: Resident Evil 8 Discussion (No Spoilers)
My only heartbreak is that it's not available in VR like 7 was. I was planning on waiting for the VR version of 8 (likely a PSVR2 exclusive when it comes out) but I don't think I can wait

re: Resident Evil 8 Discussion (No Spoilers)
Yeah if the PS5 wasn’t coming out then I’m sure it’d be available for PSVR. But like you said I’m sure they want to bring it to the PSVR2 or whatever it’s gonna be called. I get it tho. I’m just thankful the base game is still gonna be on PS4. Might be awhile before I get a 5

When it comes out, we need to turn this thread into a RE8 (spoiler free) zone where we talk about our first impressions and complaints or whatever we want. Or we could always talk about spoilers as we go and just put it in the title. Up to y’all.

Im guessing that this town has something to do with umbrellas history since the logo shows up prominently in the trailer.

Given lady D’s height and her retractable claws, I wouldn’t be surprised if she some sort of tyrant model.

Im curious to see why Chris is now “evil”.

You know in the trailer when Lady D says something like “I see you’ve escaped my idiot brother’s games”....do we think she’s referring to Lucas or Jack Baker? I feel like she’s talking about Lucas bc he was more of the one who played games with you. But I saw other people saying they thought it was Jack.

Pretty sure that she means heisenberg. Guy in trench coat and glasses. Believe he is a lycan. But it’s difficult to know without full context.

I’m 99.9% sure that both Lucas and Jack are dead post resi 7 dlc.

re: Resident Evil 8 Discussion (No Spoilers)
Ohhhhh ok ok. Yeah I thought both of them were dead but I didn’t know if she was referencing what happened before they died. But your theory would make more sense. It barely showed him in the trailers and he wasn’t in either demo on the PS4, so I’m interested to learn more about him

Definitely I love how immersive RE games are. The story line and theme look so bad ass.

I saw that ps5 versions will have different performance options to choose from. Is ray tracing better even though it lowers frame rate?

Leave it to Reddit to get weak in the knees over a gargantuan plus sized model with a mean streak who is willing to punish them.

Checks all the soy male boxes.

Want to like it but the gunplay on PC was pretty garbage. Castle looked pretty good but the village section didn’t really impress me especially with the sponge enemy’s. Demo made me wait at least a bit.

Is it possible to have zero knowledge of the backstory and still follow this new game?
