Capcom Announces Resident Evil 7

As part of the Sony press conference earlier tonight, the next chapter in the Resident Evil series was announced which will run on the company’s new “RE Engine”.

With Resident Evil 4, the game shifted its camera and its play style and now with RE7, large changes are coming again, most notably is the change to first person. It was also announced that the game will be fully playable with PSVR.

The game will launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC (Steam and Windows 10 store) on January 24th, 2017.

A demo for the game which is now available, acts as a lead in to the story of the main game and is directly tied to the PSVR demo “Kitchen” shown at E3 2015.

Will the change to first person and the chance of VR bring the series back to its horror roots or make it scarier than its ever been? We’ll do our best to check the game out this week at E3 to find out for ourselves!
