Today, we will dive into the ocean of horror games to understand the ending and plot of Resident Evil 8. Capcom’s “Resident Evil” series has always been a popular series among gamers, especially among horror game lovers. There is no doubt that since its release in 2020, the eighth part of the RE series is receiving attention. Because it already had a huge fan base before it was released. Since the release of the game, fans all over the world have put forward many theories about the plot. We can even see players playing roles in RE8, especially Mrs. Dimitrescu. Because of the tall and beautiful woman with sinister eyes, many Resident Evil fans’ hearts are petrified.
The plot of RE Village follows the story after the Biohazard incident, making it a direct sequel to the previous “Resident Evil” game. The player will once again control the character Ethan Winters (Ethan Winters), who is on a mission to find his kidnapped daughter in a mysterious village. In the survival adventure of this village, Ethan will encounter many terrible secrets. In addition to the best single player experience, players can also enjoy multiplayer games, which will be released as an update in 2022. The game also recalled many features from past games, such as the use of temporary roadblocks to defend against enemies, RE4’s inventory management mechanism, and the use of typewriters to save games (such as part four). Now let us discuss the ending and plot of Resident Evil 8 in detail, because the story of the game always makes players feel a little confused.
What is the ending and plot of Resident Evil 8?
Three years after the Bakers incident, Ethan and his wife Mia and their newborn daughter Rosemary lived a peaceful life in Europe. Chris Redfield, the protagonist of the past RE series, helped Ethan start a new life and bury his terrible past behind him. However, Chris and his team attacked the Winters family one day, killed Mia and kidnapped Ethan and his daughter. However, Ethan wakes up near a sinister village and starts searching for Rose. In that village, werewolf-like creatures called werewolves are attacking the villagers. Winters tried to protect them but failed, and the werewolf bit his hand. (Ethan had a problem with his hand because it was chopped off in Resident Evil, and then the werewolf bit it and was chopped in the village)
Heisenberg then grabbed Ethan and took him to Sister Miranda and her four lords. Miranda asks Heisenberg to take care of Ethan and send him into a death trap. However, Winters escaped the death trap and eventually came to Madame Dimitrescu’s castle, where he found his daughter’s head in a flask. An obese businessman named Duke told him that the priestess in the village had split the rose in two and planned a special ceremony, but Ethan could still rescue his daughter.
Ethan eliminated all four dukes and collected all four flasks. While adventuring in the village, Ethan met Chris again, and Chris revealed that the Mia they killed was actually Miranda. She imitated Ethan’s wife to kidnap Rose. She succeeded in doing this after a truck crash occurred at the beginning of the game. After Ethan killed all four lords, Mother Miranda appeared in front of Winters again and killed him.
After Ethan’s death, Agent Redfield began his mission to save Rose and kill Miranda. Soon Chris found Megamycete, a source of mold (a kind of fungus, a bit like the antagonist in RE7). BSAA agents also found Miranda’s laboratory and discovered all her secrets. Miranda has lived for centuries because of the giant bacteria. She was the one who introduced the fungus to the founder of Umbrella. In addition, Spencer used this knowledge to develop the game’s infamous “t virus”, which Miranda later experimented with to resurrect her dead daughter Eva. The werewolf, the four lords and Evelyn were failed attempts to resurrect Eva. However, she plans to use Rose this time because of her mutation ability. Chris also found the imprisoned Mia and rescued her during the mission.
At the same time, Ethan is in a conversation with Eveline in a world of oblivion. Evelyn revealed that when Jack Baker killed him in Resident Evil, he died. However, the mold gives Eson a super regeneration ability. Duke once again helped Ethan arrive at the ceremony site where Miranda resurrected her daughter. But the priestess finally resurrected Rose instead of Eva, which angered her. In a rage, she tried to kill Ethan, and the final boss battle began. After killing Miranda, Ethan’s body began to decay due to weakened ability. Soon, the giant bacteria emerged from the ground, causing serious damage. However, Ethan sacrificed himself and detonated the giant bacteria with him. Chris fled the village with Mia and Rose.
In the post-credit scene, we witnessed the young girl Rose visiting her father’s grave. However, she received a call from an organization asking her to perform a certain task. The game ends with a mysterious character approaching Rose’s vehicle.
What can we see in Resident Evil 9?
Judging from the ending of Resident Evil 8, we can expect Rose to become the protagonist of the next game and cooperate with Chris. Many player theories indicate that Rose has memories and rich knowledge of Miranda’s mother and Evelyn. Therefore, the mysterious person may be sent to hunt down Rose. At the same time, some theories also indicate that this is Ethan, who is still alive and protects his daughter from the shadows. But there is a third theory that seems very interesting, maybe Miranda or Evelyn’s will is resurrected in Ethan’s body. Therefore, the evil Ethan is chasing Rose to complete some sinister master plans. If the third theory is correct, then the next game will be full of drama. Because the conflict between father and daughter will be epic and emotional.
