The story begins in Ethan and Mia's house: the hero can calmly explore the rooms, and then put his daughter Rose to bed. Immediately after that, Chris Redfield bursts into the house - this scene was repeatedly shown in the trailers for the game. Chris shoots Mia, pushes Ethan and Rose into the car and drives away, but the car crashes along the way.

Ethan wakes up in a snowy forest. The character starts looking for his phone and stumbles upon a destroyed house. The insider isn't sure exactly what will happen next, but Ethan will eventually meet the old man from the first trailer who gets bitten by a werewolf. Here, the hero will receive his first weapon (pistol) and climb into the basement, which, apparently, will lead him to the mansion.
