All Articles: Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

New Retail Releases: Resident Evil 7, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8, Yakuza Zero, 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.

Finally this week, Milestone will release Moto Racer 4, another motorcycle racer, for the PS4 and Xbox One.

Resident Evil 7: Beginning Hour “Midnight Version” Hands-On Preview: The Witching Hour Gives Us Our Best Look at RE7 Yet

residentevil7-header

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…)

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.
