Now that Resident Evil/ Biohazard 2 has been out for sometime, and the eastereggs already spread everywhere it's about time fans consider what could be next.
Brad Vickers no longer a T-Virus zombie?
Maybe he just took the helicopter and flew off. . . (again)
But seriously looking back at the original games it never really made sense that Brad would be a walking zombie of the dead. Technically much like Jill they are both infected by the Trevor parasite also refereed to as NE-α Type strain. This could be setting Brad up as a Lisa Trevor like monster of moaning sorrow once he is attacked by the main antagonist
Well we all know Jill Valentine will be more capable than Leon and Claire, plus may have a dog companion?
As most Resident Evil/ Biohazard fans know, Jill gets the job done. With Jill already surviving the mansion, Crimson Heads, Lisa, Yawn, Plant 42, and the Super Tyrant. I expect some kind of return of the dodge mechanic, or something with less RNG. May even bring over the block feature from VII for her.
Moving on, I don't recall this in the original, but at the desk of Jill she has a photo of a pet dog, not sure if it'll already turn into a zombie (potential mercy kill) or just left forgotten to the developer. However my thoughts are it would be interesting if they took some notes from another Capcom Survival Horror, Demento. I can dream. .
The Umbrella Mercenaries are heavily rewritten, or at least one of them.
Russian Veteran Solider Mikhail Viktor, the very same NPC that shouts for his fallen comrades, kicks barrels, and throws grenades in the original Nemesis game. Seems now to have been rewritten and settled down cooking for the locals of Raccoon City, with his homelands recipes. Does this mean he won't do his heroics as he did in the original? Or will he come out of retirement for his swan song in the remake?
On that note, since Resident Evil VII made the events of Outbreak somewhat canon, Nikolai Zinoviev has a chance to be an even bigger threat than blowing up a Hospital and shooting his own squad down. May even see him with the Thanatos Tyrant
I don't think bringing Outbreak events into this is a fantastic idea, yet was the first game I played in the franchise, so have some bias to re view that scene in the RE Engine.
