On 19th May 2021, Netflix released a new trailer for the upcoming release of the animated series Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, also known as Biohazard: Infinite Darkness. The show features Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield, the main characters of Resident Evil 2, as the protagonists.

The show takes place in 2006, when a strange hacking incident is soon followed by a zombie attack on the White House. The trailer begins with a traumatic flashback of a past viral outbreak, before proceeding to show the said zombie attack.

Meanwhile, we learn from the character trailer, released on 16th April 2021, that Claire finds a drawing by a boy depicting the horrors of Raccoon City – the city where many of Resident Evil’s early games took place.

Stringing these events together, we can expect the unravelling of a bigger conspiracy to come.

Watch the newly released trailer below.

Resident Evil is a survival horror game produced by Japanese video game developer Capcom. The franchise currently consists of 8 games, going from Resident Evil in 1996 to Resident Evil Village in 2021.

The earlier games take place in a fictional American city called “Raccoon City”, in which an organisation called “Umbrella Corporation” is developing bioweapons. Unfortunately, a dangerous “T-virus” leaks into the sewers and eventually mutates insects, animals, and human beings into aggressive creatures.

The later games follow the aftermath of the Raccoon City outbreak in other regions.

You get to play as various characters involved in the outbreaks. The gameplay mainly involves shooting mutated beings while progressing through the storyline.

Catch Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness on Netflix

Netflix will be launching Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness worldwide on 8th July 2021. Judging by the trailer’s impressive production quality, we’re in for a good ride. Perhaps, JTB can learn a thing or two about good-looking CGI by watching the show too.
