At the recent Sony Interactive Entertainment E3 press conference today, Capcom announced Resident Evil 7 biohazard. Resident Evil 7 sets a new course for the Resident Evil series as it leverages its roots and opens the door to a truly new terrifying horror experience. Capcom takes a dramatic new shift for the series to first person view in a photorealistic style powered by Capcom’s new RE Engine.
Resident Evil 7 is scheduled for release on PS4 (the full gameplay experience will also be available via the included PlayStation VR Mode), Xbox One and Windows PC across North America and Europe on January 24, 2017.
Resident Evil 7 biohazard is set in a modern day rural America and taking place after the dramatic events of Resident Evil 6, where players experience the terror directly from the first person perspective. The Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour demo, also announced today, portrays events leading up to the main game and ties directly into the impactful PS VR KITCHEN tech demo first shown last year at E3.
In the new teaser demo, the player awakens inside a dilapidated cottage on an ominous plantation mansion. The simple question is…can they make it out alive?
PlayStation Plus subscribers can now download the standalone teaser demo for PS4 called Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour and will have first access before it is available on other platforms at a later date. Players can get a taste of what they can expect from Resident Evil 7 with a sampling of the nail-biting exploration and terrifying atmosphere the game will offer when it releases early next year.
