'Resident Evil 7: Biohazard' latest news: demo hints at more creepiness


The notion that the “Resident Evil” series of survival horror video games is the scariest and creepiest of all time is something that’s very hard to argue with. And judging by the couple of teasers for the upcoming installment, “Resident Evil 7: Biohazard,” anyone who plans on purchasing the game and playing it alone in the dark will have to at least think twice.

In a recent update from the PlayStation blog, the first “Beginning Hour” in-game demo will be followed by a new one called “The Twilight Update,” in which gamers are given the opportunity to explore the things that can be done in the run-down shack.

Per Engadget, game developer Capcom revealed that even if players feel like they’ve already explored every corner and part of the house, there will always be something new that will scare everyone to death. Well, there’s really no telling what sort of eeriness await players once the light turns on and off and on again. A head, severed finger, or human feces perhaps?

As of this writing, the patch may already have been released and the only thing those willing to try it need to do is be brave enough to actually do it. The good news though is that unlike the first demo, this is no longer locked to the PlayStation Plus membership program, which means those who aren’t subscribed can get their hands on it, too.

And if that’s not enough scary stuff, players can now take a look at this new trailer with the introduction of the Baker Family:

Seriously, who would want to accept a dinner invite from this family?

“Resident Evil 7: Biohazard’s” setting is in Dulvey, Louisiana, where a couple named Jack and Marguerite Baker mysteriously disappeared without anyone knowing what happened to them. The game, which is set in a rural mansion, is reportedly a continuation of the events of the previous installment, “Resident Evil 6.”

“Resident Evil 7: Biohazard” is scheduled for a worldwide release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC on Jan. 24, 2017.
