Capcom has unveiled a new trailer for Resident Evil 7 biohazard for E3 2016. Fans have been clamoring for a scarier Resident Evil game, and Capcom has listened -- the horror survival game will be even more terrifying when the franchise returns.
The newest entry in the highly popular Resident Evil franchise will call back to the first games and provide even more scares (it's actually reminding me of Silent Hill) by immersing players in a first-person view, complete with a “photorealistic graphical style.” According to PlayStation Blog:
"Capcom is able to achieve a shocking degree of visual fidelity thanks to the new and fully VR compatible proprietary in-house RE Engine. Last year’s “Kitchen” tech demo for PlayStation VR was in fact built on this new engine as well. With the RE Engine plus industry leading audio and visual technologies, you experience every abhorrent detail up close and personal in Resident Evil 7. Compatibility with PlayStation VR escalates the unsettling feeling of presence to a level that horror fans have never experienced. No Resident Evil you’ve ever survived can prepare you for this.
Of course, a horror story is only as frightening as its setting, and Resident Evil 7 pays tribute to the franchise’s origins on this front as well. Resident Evil 7 is set after the events of Resident Evil 6, taking place in the modern day and revolving around a foreboding, derelict plantation mansion in rural America. Players must explore and survive the horrors within the mysterious, sprawling estate. Check it out:
PS4 owners will even get a chance to have a preview of the game by downloading the “Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour” demo on PlayStation Store. Have you downloaded it yet? The full game will be available for PS4 and PS VR when it hits store shelves on Jan. 24, 2017.
