Netflix have announced the premiere date of CGI animated series Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness.
Set in 2006 (two years after Resident Evil 4), the White House has been victim to a hacker. While US agent Leon S. Kennedy were convened to investigate, zombies begin to assault the heart of the US government. Later, Claire Redfield approaches Leon about a drawing from a child refugee; zombies attacking his home. Two outbreaks worlds apart, yet nonetheless connected.
The new release date trailer shows the assault on the White House, and Claire dating to expose what happened in Raccoon City to the world. We also get a clear view of what seems to be an especially nasty monster Leon and Claire will have to deal with.
You can find the release date trailer below.
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness premieres July 8th on Netflix.
You can find the full rundown (via the Resident Evil news blog [translation: Google Translate]) below.
“In 2006, the White House, a symbol of the United States, was hacked by someone. Traces of unauthorized access were found in top secret files under the presidential jurisdiction. US agents Leon S. Kennedy and others convened for the investigation encounter unidentified zombies in the sudden power outage of the White House and control them with SWAT.
Meanwhile, Terrasave employee Claire Redfield encounters a strange painting by a boy with aphasia in a country he visited to help refugees. Claire pursues her own investigation triggered by the picture that seems to have drawn a virus-infected person.
The next morning, Claire visits the White House to petition for the construction of a welfare facility, finds Leon who happens to meet again, and shows the boy’s drawing. Leon realizes something about the connection between the White House zombie incident and the strange painting, but leaves the scene saying it has nothing to do with Claire. The two zombie outbreaks that took place in distant countries eventually evolved into a nation-shaking situation.”
