Remember how people used to groan when a new Resident Evil was announced, because since 4 they’ve been kinda… Well, Resident Evil? Yeah. Not anymore.
Since it was unveiled that some of the minds behind the fantastic P.T. had joined up with the guys at Capcom to work on Resident Evil 7, we knew something special was brewing. And something special has a-brewed.
A press release from Capcom reads:
Set in modern day rural America and taking place after the dramatic events of Resident Evil 6, players experience the terror directly from the first person perspective. In the new teaser demo, the player awakens inside a dilapidated cottage on an ominous plantation mansion. Can they make it out alive?
There will also be a playable demo on the show floor at E3, so we should have a better idea of what the game has to offer. Jump scares? Probably.
Resi 7 is also going to be flying the flag for PlayStation VR, being a fully first person experience. If that wasn’t enough, it’s also been announced that PlayStation Plus subscribers can download and play the demo for free right now.
Resident Evil 7 is touted for a release on January 24 2017, but dates are always fast and loose, so expect that to change.
