Resident Evil 8 was revealed during the PlayStation 5 games reveal event Thursday after months of speculation the game was coming.

Series fans have had their hands tied with the Resident Evil 2 and 3 remakes, but it's time to return to a new entry in the franchise. Resident Evil 8, the number revealed at the end of a spooky trailer creating the word Village, is coming to PlayStation 5 in 2021.

The trailer showcased some of the story's elements and plot lines while still keeping the main plot under wraps. Players look to once again control Resident Evil 7 protagonist Ethan Winters as he investigates a village.

The trailer built hype and anticipation while showing Chris Redfield at the end. It's unsure how Chris and Ethan play into the new story, but fans are excited to continue the story after how successful RE7 was.

Expect more details on the new entry in Capcom's franchise as its 2021 release date draws nearer.
