Capcom Announces Resident Evil 7 (In VR Too)

The game will also be a highlight title for PlayStation VR with the trailer taking place in a VR environment.

A dramatic new shift for the series to first person view in a photorealistic style powered by Capcom’s new RE Engine, Resident Evil 7 delivers an unprecedented level of immersion that brings the thrilling horror up close and personal.

Set in modern day rural America and taking place after the dramatic events of Resident Evil® 6, players experience the terror directly from the first person perspective. The Resident Evil® 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour demo, also announced today, portrays events leading up to the main game and ties directly into the impactful PlayStation VR “KITCHEN” tech demo first shown at E3 2015. In the new teaser demo, the player awakens inside a dilapidated cottage on an ominous plantation mansion. Can they make it out alive?

The demo is currently exclusive to PS4 users with PS Plus, with other platforms getting it at a later specified date. The VR mission was showcased last E3 during Capcoms Kitchen tech demo, which was utilizing the same engine and environment as the final game.
