Resident Evil VII Biohazard | oprainfall

In a truly surprising announcement, Resident Evil VII now has a title and a release window of January 2017. Not only that, but they showed the scene fully in Playstation VR. And the game will be fully playable with the VR or without. The subtitle calls back to the series roots, Biohazard, as well as the tone and location of the trailer. This is looking surprisingly good already and goes a long way to getting me interested in this franchise again. We are very excited to see this direction and we will post the trailer as soon as it becomes available. The trailer started off with you waking up to a phone call and a woman tells you to get out of the house immediately. You don’t listen and end up seeing a truly trippy VHS tape. More news on this as soon as it becomes available.

*Update* Trailer has dropped and demo is available tonight with PS Plus.

About William Haderlie

Born in the 1970's, I've been an avid participant for much of video game history. A lifetime of being the sort of supergeek entrenched in the sciences and mathematics has not curbed my appreciation for the artistry of video games, cinema, and especially literature.

    I’ll check out the demo soon.

    • William Haderlie

      It’s looking surprisingly good. I’m on board and I have not liked both 5 and 6, and 4 was good but not as good as 1&2, to me. So I’m a little bit of a hard sell.

    • Mr0303

      I’m not a huge fan of the franchise, but I’ll see how the demo fares.

  • Panpopo

    Biggest surprise of E3 to me so far. Really want to play this demo now!

      Blew people’s minds. Give credit to Sony, much of their conference was kept entirely secret.

    This is going to be scary, maybe too scary in VR. Not sure if I’m brave enough…

  • Lord Ackercocke

    I usually avoid some horrors these days so there’s no way in hell will I play RE7 in VR. I’d rather not have a heart attack.

    • William Haderlie

      Pretty much what I said. VR is going to be a bit intense for a lot of people playing horror games. People are already struggling with perception of heights and such. Let alone something psychological horror related combined with the enclosed view. I’d experience it, but I’d also warn many other people off.

    “The subtitle calls back to the series roots”
