Resident Evil: Biohazard - Redefining Survival Horror, Even After 20 Years
RESIDENT EVIL 7: BIOHAZARD
PlayStation 4 Xbox One [First Person Survival Horror] Release: Jan. 24, 2017
With all the excitement surrounding the upcoming reception of VR tech, specifically the PlayStation VR, we've see a lot of games which center around creating an immersive experience for the gamer. During it's pre-release tour, one of the tech demos which really stood out was Capcom's Kitchen which we personally got to try; all we can say is that it was one of the scariest moments in gaming we've had.
At the PlayStation E3 Conference, first person footage of a untitled horror game instantly gave off the aesthetic of Kitchen, and lo and behold, the trailer above is indeed an announcement for the next canonical Resident Evil; Capcom has confirmed that Kitchen has a heavy influence on the upcoming survival horror game.
While RE 7 is set to release for next year, PlayStation Plus members can download a non-VR demo in the meantime on the PlayStation Network. We've literally just tried it, and without spoiling anything, even though it's a departure from the traditional 3rd person Resident Evil format, the result is a genuinely terrifying experience, and a great portent to the macabre thrills to come.
“Terrifying fans at events across the globe last year, the PlayStation VR “KITCHEN” tech demo was developed utilizing the RE Engine’s VR oriented tools, and is the foundation on which the talented Resident Evil team has crafted the immersive horror experience in Resident Evil 7. Powered by the RE Engine in tandem with industry leading audio and visual technologies, Resident Evil 7 is poised to deliver a disturbingly realistic experience that will define the next era in horror entertainment.”
“Resident Evil 7 embodies the series’ signature gameplay elements of exploration and tense atmosphere that first coined “survival horror” some twenty years ago; meanwhile, a complete refresh of gameplay systems simultaneously propels the survival horror experience to the next level."
Pre-orders are now open, and demos will roll out for both Xbox One and PC before launch. Definitely something to look forward to, and definitely one to watch for all horror fans.
