Building on the success of one of the best-loved and best-selling survival horror video games of all time, the Resident Evil series tells a new story on two different timelines.
In the first, fourteen-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker move to New Raccoon City, a city of industries and offices that they have to get used to despite themselves, right in the middle of their teens. The more time passes, the more they realize that the city is not what it seems and that their father may be hiding dark secrets. Secrets capable of destroying the world.
In the second we are catapulted into the future, about ten years later. Less than fifteen million people and over six billion monsters now live on Earth: people and animals infected with the T virus. A 30-year-old Jade tries to survive in this new world tormented by the secrets of the past concerning her sister, her father and herself. .
