Game Trailer Preview
|Quote from a insider who witnessed the trailer:
The E3 trailer shows us a dusty ghetto, most likely located in somewhere Haiti, with tin-roofed shacks, truck tires wedged into the dirt which are used by people as seats, deteriorating chain link fences, and goats walking around the streets. It's important to note the setting in RE5 because it's shown during the daytime, something that we've hardly ever seen in past Resident Evil games. Could it be that Capcom's next episode in their zombie slaughtering franchise is so frightening that they do not need to use nighttime or darkness as cheap devices to scare the player to death? Possibly.
More importantly, the environment is significant because if the game does take place in Haiti, there's a very high likelihood Resident Evil 5's story involves voodoo, the dominant religion in Haiti where zombies and zombie mythos first originated from. In the voodoo religion, it is believed that a corpse can be reanimated by bokors, who are sorcerers who practice both black and white magic. While this is purely speculation, there is a strong possibility that the game will go back to the roots of zombie folklore.
Bloodthirsty villagers and a new enemy
The next thing we see in the trailer is a man with a terrified look on his face, who is probably on his way to becoming a zombie. The man is being inspected by another person as they grab onto his face. As the video continues, we are reunited with the unnamed character from first Resident Evil 5 trailer, whose head is kicked in by angry villagers. The rest of the trailer shows a man with aviator glasses shouting into a megaphone, a group of pissed off people armed with sickles and axes, a man being hung upside down by his ankles, someone bleeding out of their eye sockets, and a mysterious executioner with a bag over his head with ropes tied around it (you have to watch very closely as he's quite easy to miss).
