Greetings everyone,

Just started it and I've got to say its pretty amazing, I'm loving it! It is very intense and reminds me of first games with more horror and survival and less action.

No spoilers please

Although I have been through RE 1,2,3,4,5, I have not been following the lore since 3. And I don't remember what happened since RE3. Why all of a sudden zombies got intelligent? I mean I remember in 4 and 5 they were talking, but in this one they are line normal psychos with enhanced strength and stuff.
Shall it be revealed?

Do I need to know anything about the story so far?

Thanks in advance

No, think of this as a quasi-reboot

Ah, the Resident Evil way...

What you see in 4, 5, and 6 aren't zombies. They are people infected by a parasite that gives them abilities and kind of takes them over gradually.

I think the overall universe is still there but literally nothing was really referenced. I enjoyed the game overall, but thought last third of the game was not as great.

After 3 they weren’t really zombies any more. in RE4 they used a parasite to control the villagers. I think after that they made a new virus that was different then the T Virus and G Virus, which made them mindless zombies.

RE7 is a soft reboot. Takes place in the same universe and makes sly references here and there, but overall you don't really need to know about the story.

After 3, in RE4 you're dealing with Las Plagas, a mind-controlling parasite unlike the T-Virus which is... well, a virus. RE5 is two separate things: a more advanced form of Las Plagas as well as an offshoot of the original Progenitor Virus (which was then further researched to make the T-Virus) called Uroboros.

Without giving spoilers, neither the T-Virus, G-Virus, Las Plagas nor Uroboros are in RE7.

Apples and oranges, these people are not zombie virus victims.

Just go and enjoy the best Resident Evil game out there. Just a warning, it'll be less survival/horror and more action later, depending on your difficulty.

Nope. It's a reboot on the franchise

As I said, this is only partially true. It's a soft reboot, you should specify that.
