Capcom has a lot riding on the shoulders of "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard" as it is the final installment of the long-time running horror franchise. Developers have just released the "Beginning Hour Demo" and things are starting look promising.

Fans and critics alike, have observed the different approach Capcom has taken with "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard." The upcoming game is different from the usual hack and slash, open-fire, panic-attack-inducing thrill that its predecessors used to attract players. Although "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard" will continue from where "Resident Evil 6" left off, Ethan will be taking us on a different kind of adventure.

In a previous report in Jobs & Hire, it was mentioned that "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard" will dish out fear and terror in a different way, unlike the action filled, adrenaline pumping zombie fright night fans are used to. The upcoming game will prey on psychological fear instead. With that being said, fans are worried that it may not work out too well for the title, especially since the expectations are sky high for Capcom's last installment to the popular zombie franchise that defined a generation.

However, things are looking brighter now that the "Resident Evil 7: Beginning Hour Demo" has been released and players are hyped up. Since the demo was announced during the recently concluded E3 event, over three million fans have downloaded the demo already as reported by PlayStation Blog.

Players are now enjoying the thrilling escape from a creepy mansion, as they navigate hallways and decipher hidden messages in "Resident Evil 7: BioHazard." The PlayStation community has already enjoyed the "Resident Evil 7: Beginning Hour Demo" with its first update "Twilight," while the final update "Midnight" is already well on its way.

What makes matters even better is that "Resident Evil 7: BioHazard" has confirmed to have a PSVR mode, 4K resolution and HDR Support available, thus making Capcom's goal to scare players via psychological fear, all the more promising. Do make sure you have a PS4 Pro and a television that is compatible with 4K resolution to squeeze out every ounce of horror the game has to offer.

Moreover, as a consolation, PS4 models will have HDR support available, allowing players to soak in the glorious fear that "Resident Evil 7: BioHazard" will provide as reported by Game N Guide.
