Should Resident Evil 8 Go Back To Zombies?

I like zombies but I agree that they could try something new if they decide to go for a new game (RE8) and remakes simultaneously. The molded were rubbish, I hope they choose something different next time.

I'm still not over zombies. They are so much fun to take down. But I had to say that it doesn't really matter to me as long as they fit the story and lore. But I still like zombies... :D

Low point for the game, and some of the worst enemies in the mainline games. The quality of the game took a nosedive when they were introduced.

Put everything in it. Have some schmuck carrying a suitcase with every virus in it trip and release them all, creating a clusterfuck of zombies, ganados, leech men, giant insects, BOWs, and ghosts because why not.

1000% yes, though with the inclusion of other bio weapons. The g-mutants in the sewers we're a rad shift from the original spiders.
Humanoid monsters still kinda remain the spookiest for me, namely the Regenerator, which the plant bois in the lab reminded me heavily of. So I'd love to see some stuff along the regenerator/bandersnatch design. Crimson heads would also be rad if they return to a design similar to 7.

Dusk Golem Hi, there are recent rumors saying that RE8 will be out AFTER RE3 Remake, thats true? any info about that? My other question is, re8 or re3 are in development? at the same time??
I've promised not to say too much on REmake 3 for now, but RE8 is almost definitely going to be a next-gen title for what it's worth. RE8 and REmake 3 and one other unannounced RE project are in the works right now. While nothing is set in stone since things change in development and some of these are 2-3 years away, most likely (and if things go on schedule) there will be a new RE game in 2020, then in 2021, and then in 2022, but don't take this as word of gospel since a project that's three years away for example could experience any number of changes, delays, or being pushed forward in three years.

Capcom has formed a much better project pipeline recently, that much I can say clearly.

But we already have Lickers...
DID I STUTTER?!

On a more serious note, an enemy along the lines of The Thing would be very interesting, and what I mean by that is an enemy who you have no idea is infected and out to kill you. Have no idea how they would incorporate that. Actually, on second thought, that would make it a completely different game. I'm just speaking out loud!

While I really liked RE7 and thought the change to first person was brilliant, after playing REmake 2, Indefinsgely prefer third person, and as for the OP, definitely, zombies need to come back.

I like the zombies in the RE2 remake. Being resilient and sometimes coming back make me take them a lot more seriously as a threat. With that said, I don't really mind if they decide to go with another zombie variation or whatever.

I don't really care what types of monsters we'll face. I just want them to be varied. The molded were all the same, there was a severe lack of variety in RE7.

Yes. And I'm sad it took them a decade to figure out that the best thing was basically the original formula, but just basically do it like RE2rm + a little more variety. Maybe add to the character's moveset a little and put in a little more enemy variety and we're good. No more FPP and no more molded.

Not necessarily zombies but all i want them to do is to get rid of the cheap muddy enemies and make some effort in design and variety.

As long as it makes for a great horror game with tinges of action (instead of 6 and 7s action game with tinges of horror), I don't think they should box themselves in any other ways.

The Molded are boring and the Las Plagas are designed for action RE, not survival horror. Classic zombies work better than either of those for horror RE as the basic enemy unit.

With how utterly silly the RE Lore is, story as a reason they can't use zombies is unconvincing.

I like what RE4 - 6 did with their enemies when dealing enough damage. Transforming into something tougher. RE6 was amazing with its enemy variety. Would have been awesome if in RE2make some of the zombies would transform into a Licker hybrid after a watermelon pop.

Indeed. I think zombies in RE2 are absolutely amazing, I'm still getting surprised by how well they work within the game framework. At the same time, it's reasonable to expect something different in RE8... so zombies that have more to them than just being zombies is an alternative. We already saw something like that with REmake (Crimson Heads), but there are a lot of possibilities.

Some more ganado type enemies would be nice. Not the average ganado. The wolverine and regenerator ones where killing them is strategic.
