Resident Evil 7: Biohazard launches January 2017; PS Plus demo available today - Resident Evil 7: Biohazard for PS4 News -

Capcom has announced Resident Evil 7: Biohazard - and you'll be able to play it on PS4 later today.

A playable demo of the game will be available to download starting today exclusively to PlayStation Plus members. To grab it, just head to PlayStation Store.

Unlike previous games in the series, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is the first game in the long-running horror franchise to feature a new first-person perspective, ditching the third-person view of earlier titles. It can also be played through in full on PlayStation VR.

It isn't yet known whether the game will also be arriving on other platforms besides PS4. [UPDATE: Capcom has confirmed that it is also coming to Xbox One and PC.]

UPDATE 2: Capcom has released further information on the game and released the first screenshots.

"Set in modern day rural America and taking place after the dramatic events of Resident Evil® 6, players experience the terror directly from the first person perspective. The Resident Evil® 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour demo, also announced today, portrays events leading up to the main game and ties directly into the impactful PlayStation VR “KITCHEN” tech demo first shown at E3 2015. In the new teaser demo, the player awakens inside a dilapidated cottage on an ominous plantation mansion. Can they make it out alive?

"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."
