A new trailer for Capcom’s upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 7 was launched at the Playstation Experience and it appears incredibly sinister. The story bears some strong resemblance to Silent Hill 2 but it’s obvious this game is going more for terror than nostalgic eeriness.
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.
