Approximately 2 years after the events of Resident Evil 7, a large proportion of the Viral outbreaks have subsided with all political governments signing a treaty known as the V.S.A. (Viral Safety Agreement), which denies any government from creating biological weapons and places heavy surveillance on all Biological based research. During this time, the B.S.A.A. an organization that had for a long time been inactive is restarted by a small group of its leading operatives including Chris Redfield and Jill Velntine, the new B.S.A.A. forms a security base in Montreal, Canada and spreads out embassies into nearly every country across the planet. It is stated that the organization is not a political faction and is only interested in preventing any viral outbreaks.
During the 2 years however, a small group of capitalists, later known as the 12 Unholy Disciples join together forming a secret organization from the remains of Umbrella and Neo-Umbrella called Umbrella-P (Umbrella-Pain) whose main goal is financial domination through the use of Viral attacks on countries. It is unknown where the group's main base of operations is and thus is impossible to truly destroy the organization.
Chris Redfield, returns as the main protagonist of Resident Evil 8, after forming the new B.S.A.A. he took it upon himself to raise awareness of the T-Virus, G-Virus, Las Plagas, T-Veronica Virus, Uroboros Virus, T-Abyss Virus & C-Virus explaining the differences between them and introducing a system known as the V.P.R. (Viral Protection Rules) that lists what to do based on the Virus encountered. Chris continues training and enhancing his skills in the field to prepare for any and all Viral outbreaks, he has become well-acquainted with most weaponry including Firearms, Artillery and Military Vehicles. During the game, the player will usually play as Chris Redfield, navigating through the treacherous areas of Umbrella-P's bases.
Jill Valentine once again returns having undergone a prolonged hiatus due to the damage done by Wesker in Resident Evil 5, she initially acts as the communications head of the new B.S.A.A. and helps handle diplomatic negotiations with the governments of the world. As Chris is infiltrating the Umbrella-P bases, Jill soon realizes a pattern in the bases and tags along with Chris in some of the later bases to attempt to gain an understanding of the experiments being conducted. Jill is more experienced in dealing with one-on-one combat than Chris is although is sometimes overwhelmed by large groups of monsters.
Barry Burton was assumed lost in action by the new B.S.A.A. as he mysteriously dissapeared approximately 3 months before Resident Evil 8 starts, he acted as a lead instructor for new members of the B.S.A.A. and would occasionally go out on field missions that involved stealth tactics. Barry was last recorded having gone to investigate a mysterious signal detected in the Arctic however later rescue attempts proved fruitless in their attempts to find Barry. Chris would later stumble into Barry who is locked up in the Arctic Umbrella-P base, guarded by a monsterous human known as Russe.
Claire Redfield, Chris' younger sister had for a long time maintained a distance from Chris' new B.S.A.A. group despite multiple invitations to join the organization. Claire had gone on record stating that after Sushestvovanie Island and Raccoon City she would go on her own to help in crisis. There had been reported sightings of Claire helping civilians in Europe and Western Asia during various Viral Outbreaks, indicating that she works as a seperate entity from the B.S.A.A. Questioning on the European Union concluded that she may be being supplied by them or at least supported, it is unknown if she is under an organization however. Claire would later become a branched member of the B.S.A.A. after assisting Chris in Viral Outbreaks in Spain, Italy & Russia.
Leon S. Kennedy
After the events that transpired in Resident Evil 6, Leon saught to bring unity to the American Continents as relationships between the countries on both continents were becoming tense. Leon didn't join the new B.S.A.A. and instead saught to become directly involved in diplomatic relationships for the United States. After about 9 months of relieving diplomatic tension between the American Countries, Leon started a campaign known as the Unity Program which would later go on to form the A.U.A. (American Unity Association) a group that ensured the American Countries would work effectively in protecting each other from Viral Outbreaks. Leon and Chris would later team up a few times to deal with Umbrella-P activity in the USA and Argentina.
A clone of the former Umbrella worker, this Albert was attempted to be controlled by the 12 Unholy Disciples however as time progressed a change in power occured allowing the clone to gain control of Umbrella-P. It isn't stated whether this Albert is actually a clone or the result of the C-Virus on another individual, although evidence supports the prior as Albert infects himself with the T2-Virus near the end of the game which includes the C-Virus.
A group of Capitalists that formed a new Umbrella organization called Umbrella-P, working in secrecy the organization created an enhanced version of the Las Plagas virus that allowed them to control anyone they turned into a worker. It is revealed that they have 12 bases that work off of a central base, while throughout the game the player searches for and infiltrates these 12 Non-Main Bases, the main base is never discovered.

After the events of Resident Evil 0, Billy went into hiding to avoid the investigation following him about his involvement with James Marcus. After the events of Resident Evil 2 (and Resident Evil 3), Billy had been apparently sighted living in Alaska where contact was minimized. Billy is encountered attempting to join up with the B.S.A.A. near the start of the game explaining that he had been hiding however with the recent viral outbreaks wanted to find Rebecca as he owed her for her vow of silence. Billy later assists Chris in investigating the Arctic B.S.A.A. base, along with Jake Muller and they find out that Rebecca and Sherry had also been investigating the base however was captured by James A. Billy later helps out by becoming an optional assistant character if the player and Billy rescue Rebecca from the Arctic Base.
Rebecca had initially been keeping her distance from the B.S.A.A. organization after an incident with a Bioterrorist attack in Australia. Rebecca is noted as being involved in the infiltration of the North Island Umbrella-P base however shortly after Chris infiltrated the Easter Island Umbrella-P base she had been reported as missing. It would not be until Chris, along with Billy & Jake infiltrated the Arctic base that they would find Rebecca again who had been captured and was being interrogated to try and find answers to the Proto-T-Virus made by James Marcus. Rebecca however could be rescued by Chris and Billy and help the group reach the deeper sections of the Arctic Base. Later on Rebecca would become an optional assistant however, only if Chris and Billy saved her.
Jake, after his involvement in the Middle East crisis with Napad B.O.W.'s went into researching possible Anti-Viral Agents for the C-Virus, although he was able to create a vaccine for the common C-Virus, the enhanced C-Virus proved to be too great, so Jake began working with the B.S.A.A. as a lead researcher and occasionally as a field agent. Jake would later team up with Chris and Billy to infiltrate an Umbrella-P base in the Arctic after he'd found out they were holding Sherry captive for the traces of G-Virus left in her. Chris and Jake would later rescue Sherry from a monster known as Iranoid. After the group returned to the B.S.A.A. Base, Jake offered his assistance to Chris again with the incident in Jeruaslem, during this time, he and Chris settle old conflicts that were still causing tension between them after Resident Evil 6.
After the subsiding of the D.S.O. due to lack of funding, Sherry tagged along with Leon for a while however after being approached by the B.S.A.A. Sherry reluctantly joined the organization much to Leon's dismay as they offered her a chance to help create vaccines for the numerous viruses created by the Bio-terrorists. Sherry later worked with Jake creating the vaccination for the common C-Virus and Sherry was able to extract some of her DNA to start work towards a cure for the G-Virus. However during this procedure, she was captured and held hostage by Umbrella-P at their Arctic Base. Sherry was interrogated and had her blood used in experiments to create new G-Virus infected. Sherry could be rescued by Chris and Jake and help them navigate through a secret area of the Arctic Base. Sherry would later provide assistance in Madrid if she was rescued being able to severely weaken some of the B.O.W.s encountered.
Natalia had in the recent years developed a split personality due to Alex's concious in her mind. Through research at the B.S.A.A. base on the Prototype Virus they were able to subside the concious long enough to extract all traces of Alex that hade developed in Natalia. These traces would later be burnt, destroying the Prototype Virus for good. Natalia spends most of the game in the B.S.A.A. base undergoing treatment to ensure that the Alex concious doesn't return. Towards the end of the game, Chris can rescue Natalia from Wesker at the cost of having to fight the U-21, it is implied that if Chris doesn't save Natalia, she is killed by Wesker or the U-21. Natalia, if resuced provides Chris with an alternative path to the reactor room allowing him to avoid a couple of Tyrants.
Moira would later get involved in the B.S.A.A. acting as one of the leading field operatives much to Barry's attempts to prevent her from such a role. Barry and Moira would work together directly in the field until Moira was promoted to head of operations allowing her to command multiple field units. Moira remained in the B.S.A.A. base for most of the game directing Chris on some of his earlier missions. She becomes heavily involved in the Arctic Base infiltration after Barry is found. After the Arctic Base incident Moira attempts to help Chris directly however is stopped by Barry determined to not let her get into the danger that was unfolding. Moira reluctantly accepts her father's request and continues directing field groups. She is later encountered again during Wesker's attack on the B.S.A.A. base where she and Barry assist Chris in getting past the security locks on the upper levels fighting off an army of Hunters together. By the end of the game, Barry accepts Moira's determination and lets her go on field missions with him whenever she wants with one of the final shots being her and Barry gunning down a T-103.
After being suspended from all work and locked in a maximum security prison due to Bioterrorist involvement and crims against humanity, Ada Wong is only mentioned having been broken out by an unknown associate presumably one of the few remaining members of Neo-Umbrella. Ada Wong would then become part of Umbrella-P working as communications between the various bases. When Chris and Leon infilitrate various bases they express their feelings of betrayal by Ada as they believed her to be against the viral outbreaks to which Ada explains that she works for the highest bidder. However it is revealed when Chris and Leon infiltrate the Madrid Umbrella-P Base that Ada was actually being threatened by the Unholy Disciple, Philip, whom was using her to try to capture Chris and Leon off-guard. Ada is eventually saved by Leon and Chris who kill the unholy disciple allowing the trio to escape. Ada then disappears for most of the remaining game, contacting Chris through ammo packages as a thank you present for saving her. She is finally encountered again at the B.S.A.A. base where when Albert and Chris confront each other, Albert attempts to inject Chris with the T2-Virus however Ada shoots Albert's hand causing him to drop the T2-Virus.
Hunk remained loyal to the old Umbrella corporation and became known as the Red Silence, acting as an assassin for hire working specifically in the line of preventing the T-Virus, G-Virus, T-Veronica Virus & Progenitor Virus getting into the wrong hands. He soon learned after Wesker had been revived by cloning that he'd taken control of the new Umbrella-P organization. HUNK joined as a commander for a new unit and would be seen on occassion by Chris and the others moving mysterious shipments. HUNK would finally be encountered face to face with Chris in the Jerusalem Base where he was determined to prevent Chris from reaching the last Unholy Disciple, however Chris disarmed HUNK and beat him unconcious in Hand to Hand combat. HUNK was retrieved by the B.S.A.A. and interrogated for his involvement with Wesker. When Wesker's forces attacked the B.S.A.A. base, HUNK used the chaos to his advantage thanking Wesker on the way out by opening a security door allowing Wesker to reach the research facility. At the end of the movie, HUNK leaves a message and small mixture of T2-Virus for the B.S.A.A. telling them that Umbrella will never die.
In Resident Evil 8 the player travels to eleven locations in the world as well as temporarily staying in the B.S.A.A. headquarters in Montreal, Canada. The player's main goal in these eleven facilities is to find and destroy any research that is linked to previous outbreaks across the world. The first couple of facilities have the player, re-introduced to the main viruses in the series while later facilities show the combination of these viruses.
In these locations the player must solve a series of puzzles as well as find and access new areas of the facilities while also facing off against various mutants and zombies. Easter Island is regarded as the introductory facility due to its low levels of zombies and being the first location to introduce the Zombie Dogs, Lickers, Tyrants & Hunters.
Across the various areas Chris and the others infiltrate to stop Umbrella-P there are numerous enemies they run into along the way. These enemies can range from a standard Zombie or Cerberus to powerful Tyrants or Lickers. Enemies are also categorized by their viral infection.

He goes to the point of injecting himself with a prototype of the five viruses together, the TUGCV-Virus or T2-Virus. This prototype causes him to mutate into a horribly deformed humanoid creature. His head is split in two with Uroboros tentacles in the gap in between. Both of his eyes have greatly expanded to take up most of each side of his head. He has grown two large tentacles as secondary arms while his main arms have become clawed and have large spines protruding from the elbow joints. He has grown a tail which is able to shoot a highly flammable liquid which is ignited by his blood, his legs have also separated and now form four two toed legs.||
