I have already put notice, so we are going to open the melon at once for all: at the end of Resident Evil 7 someone down a helicopter to rescue Ethan after the fight against the final boss (or the final boss). He says that he is called “Redfield”, but there are who aren’t sure whether Chris Redfield. The reason is not so much the physical appearance (something that often is very altered one game for another inside of the saga) as the fact that the helicopter that descends carries the coat of arms of Umbrella, the company that Chris Redfield has spent years fighting.
More details: Umbrella shield is a little different than usual in the franchise, something that could be simply a change in artistic direction (which is the main feature of Resident Evil 7) or a clue about some important volantazo in the lore of the series and the policies of the Corporation or the moral compass of Redfield. No fucking idea, the truth.
The other big question is to know what has happened with Lucas, the eldest son of the family Baker that we never arrived to face directly, and by the messages that we find, a subject to which Umbrella had been observing with special attention.
The next free DLC for Resident Evil 7 entitled Not A Hero and appears that it will focus on the figure of Redfield, or at least give us more information about its identity, its objectives in general about what roll carries. So has dropped Capcom on Twitter with a «what or who is pursuing?», with which it is possible that the two unknowns (Redfield and Lucas) are resolved this spring or, at a minimum, are a bit less uncertain.
Chris Redfield returns in the “Not A Hero” free DLC for #RE7 this Spring. Who or what is he chasing? Find out in this separate story soon. pic.twitter.com/vYQhSkfyVT
