Resident Evil 7 will return to its horror roots



One of the big surprises during the PlayStation press conference was the reveal trailer for Resident Evil 7. What was originally known as PlayStation VR “KITCHEN” tech demo was revealed to be a return to the series’ “Survival Horror” roots that has been missing from the series for the last few installments.

The trailer gives us a small taste of what we can expect, but Capcom also revealed that the demo for RE7 will be available to download on the PlayStation Store sometime soon for PlayStation 4 users.

Resident Evil 7 embodies the series’ signature gameplay elements of exploration and tense atmosphere that first coined “survival horror” some twenty years ago; meanwhile, a complete refresh of gameplay systems simultaneously propels the survival horror experience to the next level. Terrifying fans at events across the globe last year, the PlayStation VR “KITCHEN” tech demo was developed utilizing the RE Engine’s VR oriented tools, and is the foundation on which the talented Resident Evil team has crafted the immersive horror experience in Resident Evil 7. Powered by the RE Engine in tandem with industry leading audio and visual technologies, Resident Evil 7 is poised to deliver a disturbingly realistic experience that will define the next era in horror entertainment.

Is this the return to horror genre that we have been waiting for?
