Get ready to get hyped because Resident Evil is back with new characters and gameplay style!
Resident Evil 7 – Biohazard is an upcoming survival horror video game developed and published by Capcom. The game is slated for release on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with the PlayStation 4 version having support for the PlayStation VR headset. It will be the eleventh entry into the main Resident Evil series, and the first main series installment to be played from a first-person perspective. It will be released worldwide in January 2017.
Resident Evil 7 was announced during Sony’s presentation at E3 2016. Later that day, a gameplay teaser titled Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour was released to the PlayStation Store, which was meant to show the direction the development team had taken and is not a part of the final game.
What is the story of the game?
The game is set in 2017; approximately 4 years after the events of Resident Evil 6 in the fictional city of Dulvey, Louisiana in the Southern United States. It features a new protagonist named Ethan Winters who is a civilian that offers fewer combat skills than most previous Resident Evil main characters. Ethan is searching for his missing wife, Mia, which leads him to a derelict plantation mansion, home of the Baker family.
Although connections to previous games in the series will be made, the game will feature an entirely new cast of characters. The title of the game, which for the first time contains in it both the “Resident Evil” and “Biohazard” brand names of the series across all regions, is said to be a clue to what’s behind the game’s plot.
What about the gameplay?
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 are also confirmed to appear in the game. Quick time events, on the other hand, will be entirely absent. The PlayStation 4 version of the game is also playable from start to finish in VR using the PlayStation VR headset, but the core gameplay mechanics will remain identical between both modes.
