The launch of Resident Evil Portal coincides with the 25th Anniversary of the Resident Evil series this year. Known as Biohazard in its native Japan, the first game was released for the original Sony PlayStation in March of 1996 — instantly becoming one of the best games of the system and spawning numerous sequels and spin-offs as a result of its success. Resident Evil would on to create a whole new video game genre called “Survival Horror” — which would spawn similar games like the Silent Hill and Dead Space series of games.
The latest game in the series, Resident Evil Village, is going to be released this coming May for the PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. The game continues the story that began with 2017’s Resident Evil 7 — which introduced the RE Engine and a brand new main character in Ethan Winters. Longtime series protagonist Chris Redfield also returns — but his role still remains a mystery.
