As Justin Timberlake might say if he were a Nerd Mucher, Chris Redfield is bringing sexy back, and them other fans don’t know how to act. It seems that though Resident Evil 7‘s Banned Footage Vol. 1 and 2 were lackluster at best, the free Not A Hero is going to feature an experience that “is a little different from the nightmare suffered by Ethan in RE7‘s main game. Chris has the skills, and the firepower, to get the job done.” So we’re probably going to see a lot of the more usual features of the Resident Evil series, such as zombies (perhaps the moulded will reappear?) and more shotgun shells than two would be nice.
The inclusion of Redfield was confirmed on the Official Resident Evil Twitter account, stating that “Chris Redfield returns in the free Not A Hero DLC for RE7 this Spring.
Who or what is he chasing? Find out soon in this separate story.” Though Redfield only appeared in three games out of seven, he’s been a favorite protagonist to many fans of the series.
Warning: Spoilers for Resident Evil 7 ahead!
As to how Redfield is going to connect with Ethan Winter’s story, our only clue is the end of the game. Once you’ve defeated Eveline final mutated form, Ethan is “rescued” by a military agent who introduced himself as “Redfield” and bore a remarkable resemblance to Chris Redfield. However, as the camera zooms out, the helicopter and other soldiers are branded with the Umbrella logo, an organization that is generally not a friend to the protagonist.
