Capcom has been suffering a lot in recent weeks due to deep leaks from the core of the company. More than 1TB of information got out of control and that caused basically almost all of their upcoming ads to be leaked. They didn’t all happen in one day, but every couple of days or weeks important new information about the future of the company appears. Now, this problem has also reached Resident Evil 8, as a development version of this long-awaited title has been leaked.
Now, something more damaging than basic plot details and release schedules has been disseminated. The latest leak exposes outright story spoilers for the ending of Resident Evil Village, as outlined by a ResetEra post. The leak includes a breakdown of why Chris Redfield has reentered the picture. Details about Ethan Winters’ full arc in the new story are featured, too, along with hints regarding the fate of his wife, Mia. Spoilers concerning Resident Evil Village’s main villain sit front and center, as well, with information that addresses fan theories and teases how the character in question is connected to the series at-large. It additionally seems as though questions centered around Ethan’s and Mia’s child are set to receive answers in the next installment. Finally, the leak features full-on ending details, right down to basic scene descriptions.
What’s the deal with Chris :Chris is not evil. He has left the BSAA and went rogue. He’s trying to find and kill the main villain of the game, a woman with morphing abilities. Chris has been hunting her for three years, she’s extremely dangerous, and the methods he’s taking to take her down is something the BSAA would never approve of. At the beginning of the game, the person he shoots isn’t Mia, it’s this person. Also, you play the entire later half of the game as Chris.
What’s the deal with Ethan :You play as Ethan during the first half of the game. He’s then confronted by the main villain and his fate is unknown while we play as Chris. You retake control of Ethan for the final boss. He dies during the battle and ask Chris to take care of his daugther named Rose.
What’s the deal with Mia :Mia’s fate is very obscure, with contradictory infos which make it seems that her fate is tied to a choice. She’s been captured by Miranda before the start of the game so she’s not the one who gets shot by Chris. There is a cutscene named “Chris and Mia escape by Helicopter” but she’s totally absent from the ending of the game.
The main villain :She’s not Alex like most people think. Her name is Miranda and she’s seemingly connected to Eveline and the Mold from RE7. She can change her appareance and transform into a huge molded dragon-like monster at the end.
Ethan’s and Mia’s daugther :Her name is Rose and she’s apparently/supposedly the reincarnation of Eveline. Miranda disguised herself as Mia to try to steal her but got shot by Chris. Later, she was able to steal her from Chris. The village treats Rose as some kind of godess.
The Ending :Chris decides to retire, in order to be able to properly raise Rose as his surrogate daugther. There is a huge time skip, between 15 to 20 years. It’s the late 2030s. Rose is an adult, Chris is an old man, She’s visiting Ethan’s grave when an agent parks nearby and she goes to him as they have a job for her. The agent jokingly calls her Eveline which makes her very angry. She then use some Wesker-style martial art against the agent before threatening him to not call her like that or she’ll use a “technique/power” that even Chris doesn’t even know about.
Resident Evil 8 will be released in 2021.
