A batch of new HD images from Capcom’s Resident Evil 7 have been released and they look absolutely incredible. The amount of detail here is stunning and the atmosphere they give off is one of pervasive dread and unease. In one of the pictures, we see an old woman, gaunt and almost skeletal, sitting in a chair. In another, we see two creatures that appear to be made of mud and dirt. In yet another, there is a person holding a knife while spiders crawl on the wall and leap towards their arm (fucking horrifying).
The player controls the protagonist, Ethan, from a first-person perspective. As with previous Resident Evil games, the player will have access to a variety of weapons including pistols, shotguns, flamethrowers, explosives and chainsaws in the fight against enemies described as mutant creatures. However, according to developers, players should not expect a “gun fest”. Other notable mechanics of previous Resident Evil games, including puzzle-solving, resource management, and healing herbs have also been confirmed to be featured in the game. Quick time events, on the other hand, will be entirely absent.
Resident Evil 7 will come out for PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4 on January 24th. Supposedly, the PS4 version will have a 12-month exclusive window for VR support.
