I wouldn't really know why they would choose 5, but I do see it associating it with STARS
The 5 is a sickle which is from the lady's daughter's in res village the new game, but them mentioning 3 weeks away and the font of the 5 is the same as res 3 logo, it might be nemesis
Oh boy is bad for me to be absolutely concerned if is going to be nemesis?
The whole 5 has the same font as 3 thing seems pretty accurate. Use the number as a hint two years in a row but in different ways is interesting I suppose, if true of course. Only a few weeks left to find out.
Well, it's just, I hate to say it I am... one of those people that don't really want Nemesis in DBD. Now it's not that I don't think he is iconic, it's just mind-boggling, to see a monster like Nemesis be stopped by... well anything in this game, pallets, flashlights, all of it. Mr. X seems a bit more logical, but my personal favorite that would make me [BAD WORD] my pants real hard... is if we got Jack Baker as well. RE 7 was my first ever RE game that I ever got and it wouldn't feel right to only just include the old-time stuff, it should be a mix for everyone.
What I can think of this: The Silent Hill chapter brought us a mix, the Midwich map belongs to Silent Hill 1, The killer belongs to Silent Hill 2 and the survivor to Silent Hill 3 (I'm not sure what I'm saying since I know very little about Silent Hill and the truth is that saga scares me).
Looking at the cover, I'm sure you can do the same 2 times in a row, The map may come from the first Resident Evil game, The killer may be Mr. X, The survivor may be Jill Valentine. But this I do not think fits perfectly and perhaps they seek to deceive us.
But I am sure that the survivor (s) can be members of S.T.A.R.S, a woman and a man and from there they can get many legendary skins like Claire, Leon, Ada, Ethan, Alice, etc.
The killer, I still hope that this is the first chapter to bring us at once, 2 killers.
Maybe each one from a different timeline. Now say Mr. X from the old games, and have someone like Jack Baker, Dimetrescu, or Heisenberg be the other killer for fans of the current timeline, a nice balance for everyone.
Jack Baker was a great character for RE7, but he just wouldn't fit in DbD. Too much like an original BHVR killer, just a man, no powers beyond the usual strength and endurance, and his personality wouldn't fully shine through since he wouldn't talk. He's also not iconic and is only recognizable and beloved to RE7 fans.
What if they have another announcement besides RE? The devs love surprising us ^^
@QwQw actually made a concept of how Jack Baker would work, and honestly its not that bad at all. plus I don't think Capcom will allow Jack without his iconic lines to be implemented into DBD. He isn't just beloved to fans of just RE7 he helped reinvent the terrifying villain like Mr. X with both being stalkers.
There will never be two killers in one chapter, BHVR can barely release one without breaking the game. Two survivors, one male, one female is highly likely and BHVR would be throwing away so much money if they didn't. Leon would be guaranteed as the male survivor as he prints money and since Nemesis is more likely than Mr. X it will give RE2 fans something to work with, as well as RE4 fans, which aren't likely to get anything else out of the chapter. The female survivor could be Claire, which would likely, under the Silent Hill methodology, mean that the mansion from the first game would be the map. But if I were BHVR I'd choose Leon and Jill, because they're the most iconic protagonists and Jill is arguably the face of the early Survival Horror games while Leon is the face of the 4-6 action era. It would also give fans of both the RE1 and RE2 duos one character each, and it would be the first time Leon and Jill ever meet.
I think it's still the same timeline, the first person games just don't have anything to do with the old games outside of the presence of Chris Redfield. I'd actually argue that Mr. X should count as a new character at this point because nobody really cared about him until two years ago and the hardcore, 20+ year RE2 fanboys probably care more about Birkin. Even Jack Baker feels like an older character to me than the version of Mr. X that everybody loves.
I think it's unlikely that the newer, first person era of Resident Evil will get any representation simply because it's one single game (Village doesn't count, being far from release when BHVR started working on this DLC). If Village had already released last year to massive acclaim, then sure, that would be fair. But as it stands when people think of Resident Evil they think more of the old classic survival horror games or the action games, not a single first person game from half a decade ago.
Thats hard to imagine, what other then RE would you think the devs are working on
So what I'm getting is that a game... the first RE game that I ever touched... that helped me paint the whole franchise... in a new light... that I thought was a stereotypical/overdone and overused zombie apocalypse series... doesn't deserve to be in DBD because... it's just... one game... I'm sorry but RE7 helped bring back what a [BAD WORD] show it became since 5, and 6. I think all of the mainstream games of RE should get represented because it's not fair to just include the classics it's like giving a middle finger for not existing 20 years ago. I'm sorry but I have been slightly grinding my teeth while typing this, its not fair for everyone
I actually agree with your view on 7, I'd rather play it than 5, 6, or even 4, and think it was a return to form. But being hunted by a corrupted family in Louisiana for one game just isn't iconic to the series. People associate RE with zombie outbreaks and laboratories. Jack would not be recognizably a Resident Evil villain. And the other elements of the game are even less deserving of representation - the Baker house is good but it has nothing on the mansion from the first game or any part of Raccoon City, and Ethan literally has no face as far as Capcom is concerned.
I'm liking this! Anything that gives a Nemesis vibe is good to me
You know what, I'm not even going to argue. I'm nearly done trying to defend RE7 coming in at this point, it always goes along the lines of that RE7 isn't this or that, it's not iconic, you only played RE7 what a noob lol. I'm [BAD WORD] done, I barely care who the killer is at this point, I just... I've been mocked and belittled for wanting something that I want in DBD, its happened with Fnaf, and now its RE7.
They nerfed that remember?
We might see what it means in the new RE game
The 5 looks like the 3 on the original RE3 box art, but I'm not seeing the hat five. The thing on the left looks like it could be either Nemesis's tentacle or the Mold from RE7 (I actually thought it was Godzilla at first because the thing kinda resembles this one shot of him near the end of Godzilla vs Kong).
If it's really Nemesis, then hell yeah but also oh god why. I really don't want my favorite RE character to end up like Twins or Trickster, but at the same time he's freaking Nemesis!
The black gunk was also in last years anniversary picture so I wouldn't look too much into it. It's just the dbd logo but extra fancy for the birthday party. It's not going to be Lady D, the chapter has been in works way before the announcement, and they wouldn't waste it just to market the new game that's already going to sell hot cakes.
I also thought immediately about a sickle (weapon from the village people) or a hook of some sorts..
but I don’t think they are doing the same thing with the number twice in a row. Not even sure they want to hint at anything, speculation and hype is pretty high already because it’s confirmed to be RE..
I can see Nemesis tentacles...
But im not sure, I think that's too much of a stretch.
This is a very unlikely guess but the 5 looks like a sickle.
Please don't be RE7.
I see black goo, the same kind of black goo that we seen in RE7, the molded, the baker family..... Evelin
As Space Coconut pointed out, the 5 looks very similar to the sickle used by the Witch Sisters in RE8.
Yeah it does look like the sickle but I'm not sure if they really are gonna release the witch sisters a the killers, that's kinda a bold moe on Bhvrs part particularly with a series as big as RE
It certainly is, although honestly, I'd personally much rather have them than Nemesis or Mr. X.
Yeah it's a double-wide surprise alright, she's very H.O.T!
