Resident Evil 7 is coming in January
Capcom unveils their reimagining of the horror series that was patient zero of console horror games
Capcom joined Sony during their E3 press conference to reveal their terrifying new entry in the Resident Evil series.
Resident Evil 7: biohazard is a reimagining of the horror series which had lost its way somewhat in recent years. The game sees players wake up in a derelict cottage on the edge of an abandoned plantation estate immediately after the events of Resident Evil 6.
In a departure from the series' usual format Resident Evil 7 takes place entirely in a first-person perspective aiming to recapture the atmosphere and spirit of the series that helped coin the phrase "survival horror" back in the nineties. This is a design decision partly fuelled by the revelation that Resident Evil 7 will be completely playable through Sony's new Playstation VR headset which is due out later this year.
What's more there is a demo out now for Playstation Plus subscribers of PS4 that gives a short taste of what Capcom has done to reinvigorate the series.
Resident Evil 7: biohazard will be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on January the 24th, 2017.
