Final mini-trailers for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard promise a new full trailer in early December

residentevil7-header

Capcom’s series of mini-trailers for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard has come to an end with “Shadow” and “Aunt Rhody,” both of which are as mysterious as the preceding eight.

A fight with a creature that strongly resembles a Regenerator and an almost face-to-face meeting with the creepy Aunt Rhody eventually give way to a promise from Capcom that the third “Tape” trailer will be released in early December. Tape #1, “Desolation,” was our first look into the world of Resident Evil 7 back in June. While Tape #2, “The Bakers,” introduced us to a family of cannibals that might be scarier than Leatherface and his kinfolk.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on January 24. You can find the “Shadow” and “Aunt Rhody” mini-trailers after the break. (more…)

Did you know Capcom has been posting a series of Resident Evil 7 mini-trailers?

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard‘s launch is just a few months away, but did you know that Capcom’s been posting short mini-trailers from the game for the last two weeks? Each video is less than a minute long, and all of them focus on a tiny sliver of the horror game’s world.

This cryptic vibe is definitely still present in “A Closer Look” and “Imagination,” a pair of new mini-trailers that were released today. And in case you missed any of the previous videos, all eight mini-trailers can be found after the break.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will be released on January 24 for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. (more…)

Capcom updates Resident Evil 7 demo on PS4 for everyone; New trailer evokes Texas Chain Saw Massacre

We’ve got cannibals! Capcom released a brand new trailer for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard this morning in conjunction with the Tokyo Game Show, and it owes more than a little bit to Tobe Hooper’s terrifying Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Viewers will be introduced to the mysterious Baker family, as well as several scenes showcasing the game’s “visceral combat.”

Capcom also announced plans to update the “Beginning Hour” demo, and best of all, it’ll no longer be exclusive to PlayStation Plus subscribers. Starting today, all PS4 owners will be able to download the “Beginning Hour” demo.

Finally, the Capcom-Unity blog has revealed new information about Resident Evil 7’s Season Pass and Digital Deluxe Edition. Previously, the publisher planned to release two additional Story Chapters as part of the Season Pass. But now, that number will increase to three, and so will the price of the Season Pass (from $20 to $30). More than a dozen new screenshots can also be found at the blog.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on January 24, 2017.

ESRB Rating Summary for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard revealed… and then removed

residentevil7-header

For a brief window of time this morning, the Rating Summary for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard could be found on the ESRB’s website. It’s offline now, but the short paragraph did reveal a bit more information about the mysterious game, which Capcom is keeping tightly under wraps.

According to the Rating Summary, Resident Evil 7 will star Ethan, “a man searching for his missing wife.” We first heard Ethan’s name during the recently released Gamescom trailer, and it looks like the character will be knee deep in the dead during his quest:

This is a survival-horror game in which players assume the role of Ethan, a man searching for his missing wife in a derelict mansion. Combat is accompanied by realistic gunfire, screams of pain, and exaggerated blood-splatter effects. As players progress through the story, cutscenes can depict instances of gore and intense acts of violence: a character’s arm dismembered by a chainsaw; a man’s leg taken off at the knee with a shovel; a character impaled through the face with a shovel. Some areas also depict mutilated corpses with exposed organs/viscera. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in the dialogue.

While this certainly sounds like the Resident Evil we all know and love, Capcom hasn’t even hinted at the level of intense combat that’s supposedly contained within the game. At the very least, fans of Resident Evil 4 should be happy.

But we’ll all find out together when Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on January 24, 2017.

Get spooked by the new Resident Evil 7: Biohazard trailer at Gamescom 2016

I couldn’t even begin to tell you how the new Resident Evil 7: Biohazard trailer connects to the rest of the franchise. Released today at Gamescom, the trailer’s definitely spooky, but a ghost chasing a woman through a dingy basement is not where my mind goes when I think of Resident Evil.

That said, the trailer does introduce fans to Marguerite Baker, one of Resident Evil 7’s main characters:

Set within the sinister plantation house in Dulvey, Louisiana, the Baker family, including Jack and Marguerite, were residents but no-one has seen or heard from them in a while. Where could they be? One thing is clear in the latest content to be shown from the game – there’s something not quite right within the plantation. Who is the mysterious girl in the gameplay? What does Marguerite want with her?

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on January 24, 2017.

Resident Evil 7: Beginning Hour Hands-On Preview: Disturbing For the Wrong Reasons

residentevil7-header

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Resident Evil 7 has officially been announced. The reveal itself wasn’t that surprising… it was pretty much assumed the game would be announced at this year’s E3 Expo… but I don’t think anyone could have guessed it would look like this. With a new first-person perspective, a total absence of familiar characters, and no immediate ties to the previous games in the series, the seventh game in the series seems like a fresh start altogether.
