Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Promises to Bring Horror Back

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is going to bring “true” horror back to the series, Capcom announced during Sony’s E3 2016 press briefing.

Set before the events of Resident Evil 6, in a desolate American town, players must once again face grim horrors in hopes of survival. Powered by the new RE Engine, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is going to launch with support for PlayStation VR. Capcom confirmed that the entire game is playable with the headset alone, which is simply fascinating.

“While Resident Evil 7 draws from the series’ roots of atmospheric survival horror, it also delivers a whole new level of terror,” explained Capcom. “In the classic Resident Evil games of yesteryear, players braced for fear in the first-person via the creepy door-opening scenes, and Resident Evil 7 ramps up that tension with an immersive first-person view and a photorealistic graphical style.”

While the game is slated for release next year, the developer has gone ahead to place a playable demo for all PlayStation Plus subscribers. It’s unknown as to whether the demo will arrive later for everyone else as well.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is scheduled for release on January 24, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Besides the new game, Capcom is also working on a full Resident Evil 2 remake and the re-release of Resident Evil 4, 5, and 6 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
