All Articles: Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
It looks like there’s still some life left in the Resident Evil franchise. The latest game in the series, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, topped the NPD Group’s report on the best-selling games in January 2017. The only other new release to crack the top ten was Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue, which camein at #6.
“With only five days in the market, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard was the best-selling game in January. The last time Capcom had the best-selling game of the month (in dollar sales) was in March 2009 with Resident Evil 5,” NPD Analyst Sam Naji told GamesIndustry.biz.
Overall spending on game titles was up 14% last month over January 2016, thanks mostly to continued demand for 2016’s biggest releases including Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (#2), Battlfield 1 (#4), and NBA 2K17 (#5). And Grand Theft Auto V (#3) continues to burn up the charts more than four years after it was first released.
The complete list of best-selling games from January 2017 can be found after the break. (more…)
It doesn’t feature any familiar characters or shambling hordes of zombies… but the Resident Evil franchise is back. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is now available to download for the Xbox One through the Xbox Games Store and it asks players to explore a creepy plantation in Louisiana in a brand new first-person viewpoint. Don’t worry, a fine family of cannibals is more than willing to give you a tour.
Also available to download from the Xbox Games Store today is TowerFall Ascension. Matt Thorson’s multiplayer archery competition has made its way to the Xbox One alongside the Dark World expansion and the complete single-player campaign.
Finally today, Milestone will bring the arcade thrills of Moto Racer 4 to the Xbox One. Featuring tracks from across the globe, players will be able to race for the checkered flag in single-player and multiplayer modes.
More information about this trio of games can be found after the break. (more…)
It’s a big week for the PlayStation Store as developers and publishers plan to add more than a dozen new games to the digital storefront this week…
Let’s start things off with Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, the latest game in Capcom’s long-running zombie saga. Resident Evil 7 promises to switch things up on the PS4 and many of the franchise’s most familiar characters won’t make an appearance in the game. However, there is a deranged family of cannibals to deal with, and full PlayStation VR support for the first-person horror title.
PS4 owners interested in a different sort of wild ride might want to look into Yakuza 0, which will travel back to the beginnings of Sega’s gangland tale. Players will learn all about how Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima got their start in the Yakuza, and they’ll experience the “unbridled decadence” of Tokyo in the 1980s.
Also available this week is a trio of RPGs that will most likely offer more uplifting stories. Square Enix has remade Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance (previously a 3DS exclusive) for the PS4 as Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue. Bandai Namco will expand the Tales series with the pirate-themed PS4 adventure Tales of Berseria. And Snowcastle Games will bring their retro-inspired RPG, Earthlock: Festival of Magic, to the PS4 later this week.
More information on all of these games can be found after the break. (more…)
We’re finally kicking off 2017 in style with a big batch of new releases that’ll be available to purchase this week…
Capcom will resurrect the Resident Evil franchise once again with Resident Evil 7: Biohazard for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Utilizing a brand new first-person perspective (and PlayStation VR support on the PS4), the latest Resident Evil game will mark a fresh start for the series.
Also available this week is Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue, a high definition remake of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, which was originally released for the 3DS in 2012. The PS4-exclusive package will also include a movie-length retelling of mobile title Kingdom Hearts Unchained X and a brand new epilogue to Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep.
Speaking of prologues, Sega will go back to the beginning of the Yakuza series and reveal the story of how Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima originally climbed the ranks of the crime syndicate in Yakuza Zero for the PS4. Players will be able to battle it out with rival gangs, or indulge in “all the vices 1988’s Japan had to offer.”
You won’t find any gangsters in Bandai Namco’s Tales of Berseria, but you will find plenty of pirates in the PS4 RPG. The latest game in the Tales franchise will star Velvet, a young woman who has to defeat her own inner demons while sailing the seven seas of Midgand in search of adventure.
Capcom will release Resident Evil 7: Biohazard next week, but a new product listing on Steam has given us a sneak peek at the game’s Season Pass. Priced at $29.99, the Season Pass will include a handful of short (and most likely, creepy) bonus levels and an “Additional Story Episode”:
- Additional Story Episode
- Banned Footage Vol. 1
- Ethan Must Die
- Banned Footage Vol. 2
- Jack’s 55th Birthday
According to Capcom, all of Resident Evil 7’s downloadable content will be released by the end of the year.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will be available for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on January 24.
Resident Evil 7: Beginning Hour “Midnight Version” Hands-On Preview: The Witching Hour Gives Us Our Best Look at RE7 Yet
I’ve gone hands-on with Resident Evil 7: Biohazard twice now, first with the original Beginning Hour demo and then with the VR Lantern demo. Both left me with very different impressions, but since the Beginning Hour demo received one last update following Sony’s PlayStation Experience event, I decided to jump back in with high hopes. How did it go? (more…)
Have you ever purchased a Collector’s Edition for your favorite game and thought to yourself… “You know what this package is really missing? A severed finger!” Thankfully, Capcom has heard your pleas and partnered with GameStop to produce a Collector’s Edition for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard that’ll make all your dreams come true.
Priced at $180, the Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Collector’s Edition will include a 4GB USB Drive molded in the shape of a severed finger. The “Premium Packaging” will also contain a Music Box shaped like the Baker Mansion, a “Creepy Note” from one of the Mansion’s residents, and an “Exclusive Lithograph” showcasing the Baker family in all their mystique:
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Collector’s Edition
- Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Game Disc in Exclusive Metal Case
- Mansion Music Box – Plays a Sample of “Aunt Rhody” with Accompanying LED Effects (8″ Tall).
- Exclusive Lithograph – Showcasing the Baker Family in All Their Mystique.
- Creepy Note – From One of the Mansion’s Residents.
- Dummy Finger 4GB USB Drive
- VHS Tape Box for Dummy Finger
The Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Collector’s Edition will be available for the PS4 and Xbox One on January 24, 2017.
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…)
