“[The Face Eater] is a dangerous creature that lurks in the Realm of Consciousness, and can steal the life from other living beings,” says Capcom producer Tsuyoshi Kanda in a new PlayStation Blog put up. “Once one captures Rose, she’ll take a significant amount of damage, so do everything you can to avoid them!”
Interestingly, Kanda additionally mentions that the DLC is stuffed with quite a few “monstrosities” that may solely be taken down by way of precision aiming, correct useful resource administration, and the efficient use of Rose’s particular talents. Given what we all know concerning the Realm of Consciousness and the Megamycete, it is sensible that Rose will bump up in opposition to some nightmarish new creations throughout her time there.
However, these Face Eaters actually do appear to be the celebrities of this explicit present. We’ll have to attend and see how they function in-game, however the temporary glimpse of them we see within the trailer means that they’re a lot greater than bullet sponges. Indeed, Rose barely has time to squeeze off a few pictures earlier than the Face Eater seen within the trailer breaks down a door, grabs maintain of her, and begins doing the one factor that it seemingly does greatest.
In a unusual means, I for one welcome our new Face Eater overlords. As a lot as I loved Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil Village, I discovered these video games’ primary monsters to be a bit missing. Some of them are extra memorable than others, however none of them actually grabbed me (so to talk) in the identical means that earlier Resident Evil monsters like Crimson Heads and Lickers have. That explicit period of memorable RE monsters simply gave the impression to be behind us.
Now, although, it looks like Capcom is likely to be considering giving a little extra like to extra than simply the stalker boss characters which have come to outline extra trendy Resident Evil video games. Even if the Face Eaters don’t turn into the brand new Necromorphs (the gold commonplace for spooky widespread horror sport enemies), it’s good to see the RE workforce spotlight a foe that isn’t a big vampire thirst entice.
With any luck, future Resident Evil video games might even characteristic a wider array of nightmarish creatures that trigger panic and confusion on the mere sight of them. That is, in any case, what the most effective online game monsters are imagined to do.
