’Resident Evil 7: Biohazard’ Demo In E3 Brings Major Hands On Horror

By Jane Reed

Players who follow "Resident Evil" closely know that the game made its mark with heavyweight horror turns and battles. Which is why "Resident Evil 7" is said to be more than that.

"Resident Evil 7: Biohazard" is going to be different. It is described to be a major course correction from "Resident Evil 4." It opens up in a scary house in the teaser demo released. The demo, titled "Beginning Hour," looks nothing like its predecessors. The series seems to be distant in feature, for RE 7.

Comparing RE 4 and Biohazard, The Verge has it that the only thing these games have in common are both games can't be played today. "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard" brings back the horror. The demo features the "Kitchen." In the Virtual Reality demo, the vibe is similar to the "Saw." You start with a chair, and your hands are tied. But that VR demo makes it quite immersive for players. If the character gets stabbed in the leg, it's as almost if the leg physically twitches in nervous response.

The "Kitchen" scene makes the RE7 quite radical. So this is a plus since it's playable with PlayStation VR. "Beginning Hour" is set in the same house as "Kitchen." Since the game uses a first person perspective, it's going to be an interactive experience for the player.

The game is also coming on to the PC and Xbox One platforms. According to Polygon, it won't be a Virtual Reality experience for these platforms. Mike McWhertor explains that "controlling the camera through head-tracking and the right analog stick wound up being disorienting."

Would "Resident Evil" be able to come back to its former glory with "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard?" Only players can tell when it comes out for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 24, 2017.
