Capcom has announced that they are working on a brand new type of game for the Resident Evil series in the form of Resident Evil 7: biohazard. Announced during the Sony E3 2016 press conference, Resident Evil 7: biohazard is being developed for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC and will be released on January 24, 2017. To go along with this news the company announced that a demo called “Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour” will be available for PlayStation Plus subscribers tonight.
This demo will be playable using the basic controller but will also be fully compatible with PlayStation VR when it launches and it appears that the full game might be played entirely in first person. Resident Evil 7: biohazard is being developed using a brand new in-house engine and takes place after the events of Resident Evil 6 and takes place in modern day revolving around a foreboding, derelict plantation mansion in rural America. Players must explore and “survive the horrors within the mysterious, sprawling estate.”
