A new resident evil 9 Rumor is spreading. 2022, resident Evil is probably the largest franchise next to Capcom monster hunter. Between multimedia adaptations, Resident Evil Villageand the upcoming remake of Resident Evil 4, Capcom is pumping out a ton of content for fans of the survival horror series. And there’s no reason to expect that to change. And because there’s no reason to expect that to change, there’s no reason not to expect it resident evil 9. To this end, a new rumor claims to have the first details about this unannounced and at the time hypothetical game.
The rumor comes from an anonymous source, which is the first red flag. The second red flag is that this anonymous source is from 4chan. The third red flag is that it is in an information repository that has a reputation for being fake. So why is it doing the rounds? Well, firstly, fans are dying to hear about the future of the series, but secondly, because information about previous games in the series has been leaked on 4chan in the past, so there’s a precedent here. That said, it’s still very important to take everything below with a grain of salt.
The game’s working title is rumored to be resident Evil Apocalypse, and it’s set “in a ghost town out west where a certain investigation is going to take place.” This environment is said to consist of a small town and many different outdoor environments like caves and campgrounds. These areas are populated by enemies described as “deformed creatures” resembling mythological creatures. Apparently the locals call them “Goatman” and “Wendigo”. Additionally, there will be a “huge emphasis on body horror” and monsters will be able to get closer to players masquerading as “friendly NPCs” if the original NPC’s body died and players didn’t see it.
Speaking of the map, the rumor has it that there’s a large “restless” forest that players can easily get lost in, presumably because it’s dense and dark. Also, the following details are mentioned: an early boss named Barghest who is like a “huge black dog with a twist”, an antagonist named “Glaistig” with a “really beautiful design with green and gold ornaments and mourning green robe”, and another Woman / “bioweapon” character who acts as a guide for the player. Like Glaistig, it states that the monsters in the game fear/respect that character, just as they do with Glaistig.
The rumor also states that players can force open some doors, lock them, barricade them, and use breakable melee weapons. Finally, it is mentioned that the plot is about the “9. Phase of the Moon, which is where the name Apocalpyse comes from.
Is any of this true? only time good. In the meantime, we’ll be on the lookout for Capcom comment, but one is unlikely to arrive as rumors are never commented on.
