The launch date of Netflix's live-action Resident Evil TV show is fast-approaching, and now Netflix has launched the show's first teaser trailer, giving us a good look at just what fans can expect from the show. While the trailer doesn't give us anything really concrete to go on, it does sew together lots of clips that makes the show look very action-packed and character-driven.
We already know a bit about the show's plot, although a press release sent to TheGamer has revealed a little bit more. The show is set 14 years after the outbreak and focuses on Jade Wesker, daughter of series villain Albert Wesker. Jade is grappling with her past, the connections between her father and the Umbrella Corporation, but also what happened to her sister Billie, all while fighting to survive in a zombie-infested city.
Eagle-eyed fans will even notice one or two little easter eggs to discover within the trailer, although you will need to keep your eyes open and grab your phone to make the most of them. It's important to note that this is just a teaser trailer for the show and we'll likely hear more about the show, and possibly get another trailer, before it launches this summer.
If this is the first you're hearing about a live-action Resident Evil show, let us fill you in. The show was first announced back in August 2020 with a very short description of its plot. The show's cast was then announced last year, the most notable actor being Lance Reddick taking on the role of Albert Wesker. This was closely followed by a release date, as Netflix's Resident Evil show will air on July 14 this summer.
In other Resident evil news, we've seen some signs of life from the largely forgotten Resident Evil Re:Verse that Capcom has in the works. Despite being pulled after overwhelmingly negative feedback from the game's beta test, Re:Verse was recently rated for Google Stadia. Not exactly a massive update, but the fact the game has been rated for another platform does signify the game is still being worked on behind the scenes.
