Resident Evil 7 Demo Receives Final Update Before Launch

first_img Resident Evil 7 Coming to Switch Thanks to the Power of the CloudGame of the Year: Jordan Minor’s Actual Games of the Year (2017) Stay on target Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is set for release next month, and Capcom has released the final teaser and a demo update to tide you over before launch.The demo update, titled “Midnight,” grants players more access to the Baker farm house and adds PlayStation VR and PlayStation 4 Pro support. It also reveals the answers to puzzles that have been haunting players for months. What’s the finger item used for? We can finally find out in this update, which’ll hit Xbox One on Dec. 9 and on Steam on Dec. 19.Along with the update, we got a new teaser, released this weekend, which tells us more about our protagonist. Ethan Winters is on the hunt for his wife, who he believed died three years ago. He receives a message alerting him to her presence, therefore heading to a creepy farmhouse owned by the Baker family in an attempt to search for her.Sounds eerily similar to the synopsis for Silent Hill 2, where a man has to head to the town of Silent Hill after receiving a letter from his dead wife.Capcom’s heading in a new direction with the franchise, which in recent years had become stale and repetitive, moving away from scares and survival horror and into more generic action shooter territory. The first footage we saw from the game, which has VR compatibility, teased a first-person experience with more of an emphasis on atmosphere, puzzle-solving, and attempts to build up genuine terror. It was stark and unique compared to what we saw in Resident Evil 6, which amounted to little more than a rehash with the same characters we’d been playing for years and poorly-designed levels.Resident Evil 7, on the other hand, looks reminiscent of P.T. and, of course, Silent Hill and that’s probably a good thing. Our first impressions of the demo were mostly positive. It wasn’t a Resident Evil game in the traditional sense, but it was different, and managed to give us a few scares.Resident Evil 7: Biohazard launches on January 24, 2017 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.last_img
