Fake Chris Redfield Theories May Hold Some Truth In New Resident Evil 7 Trailer (VIDEO)
By now, whether or not fans have completed Resident Evil 7, it is likely apparent that the game hosts Chris Redfield at the end of the story and in the upcoming “Not a Hero” DLC. The fan favorite’s appearance seems very different from previous designs and his association with Umbrella Corporation has raised more than a few eyebrows. These differences have made many fans speculate that this is a fake Chris Redfield.
Capcom has denied these fan theories, stating pretty plainly that this is not a fake Chris Redfield. They attribute his appearance to a choice in design that better suited the realism of Resident Evil 7; while his association with Umbrella remains a question to be answered in the DLC. A new trailer for Not A Hero may have added some merit to the theory however and it can be seen below:
Conspiracy theorist Pete presents similar thoughts as the fake Chris Redfield fan theory and reveals a tape that supports his case. The tape features Chris Redfield hunting Lucas Baker and communicating with Umbrella through a radio comm. When the video ends Pete returns and questions the validity of Chris’ identity.
Fans have theorized that the fake Chris Redfield may be an Umbrella experiment, modified clone, or HUNK in disguise. Before fans get too hyped about the video, it should be kept in mind that this could just as easily be Capcom adding a little humor into their gameplay trailer. Ultimately, fans will have to wait for the DLC to launch on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and PlayStation VR on December 12th to find out for sure what the verdict is.
