Chris Redfield Is On The Warpath
Ever since his reveal at the end of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, players were curious if they would get a chance to jump back into the boots of the one man army that is Chris Redfield. With this DLC we have seemingly got our wish, but it looks like the game is taking things in a much more action-orientated direction.
Has the series taken a back-step towards the days of Resident Evil 5 and 6?
According to an article on Gamesradar –
This new trailer for Resident Evil 7’s free Not A Hero DLC proves that, even in this slightly re-imagined world, veteran BOW killers don’t have any patience for that “running and hiding” stuff. The main campaign starring Ethan Winters expertly rebuilt Resident Evil’s early survival horror fundamentals for first-person horror and now you get to see what it looks like with some more of that late-era Resident Evil monster slaying action.The jury’s still out on whether this really is our Chris Redfield: why’s he working for Umbrella all of a sudden, and why does he look and sound different? Normally I’d chalk the differences up to tech and vision changes as Capcom pivots the series in a more grounded direction, but this is Resident Evil we’re talking about. For all we know, Umbrella finally admitted that nobody does monster cleanup like Chris Redfield so it captured him, stuck him in a tank, and started sending out imperfect, disposable Chris clones to do their dirty work.Whoever this guy is, he definitely fights like our Chris. Unlike Ethan who more or less blunders into danger, Redfield arrives in the bayou loaded for BOW and ready to punch the hell out of any gloopy plant monster or boulder or whatever else this strange world puts between him and the credits screen.
