The latter games in the Resident Evil series included better graphics, new characters, and monsters apart from zombies. The game mechanics vary every time, but puzzle-solving has remained a constant throughout. The game’s main objective was to fight against the aftermaths of the spread of T-virus by the Umbrella Corporation. All the characters in the subsequent series fight bio-terrorism even after its downfall.
The 2017 game Resident Evil 7: Biohazard introduced the use of virtual reality in the game. 2021 sequel Resident Evil: Village also sports this same example.
