Resident Evil is back and it looks completely different than it has ever looked before.
Unveiled at Sony’s E3 Press Conference, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, redefines the series by being the first game in the franchise to shift to the first person perspective. Adding to the new perspective, Resident Evil 7 will also support full-VR functionality from beginning to end.
According to Capcom, Resident Evil 7 will be set after the events of Resident Evil 6 – “taking place in modern day and revolving around a foreboding, derelict plantation mansion in rural America.” Players will need to explore and survive the horrors within a mysterious, sprawling estate.
Playstation 4 owners that are Playstation Plus members will be able to download the Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour demo starting today, offering the first look at Capcom’s latest game.
Pre-orders for North America via the PlayStation Store are available starting today and come with the exclusive dynamic PS4 theme. Two editions will be able to preorder – Standard and the Digital Deluxe version.
Those who preorder the Digital Deluxe edition will receive the Survival Pack, which includes an early unlock to the hardest difficulty mode as well as a special item set when the game releases.
Resident Evil 7 will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 24, 2017.
