'Resident Evil 7' release date, news: Game to bring back exploration and puzzle solving


Fans are certainly hyped up about the new “Resident Evil 7: Biohazard” game, as an early coverage of the game reveals that it will be returning to its roots, meaning that the game will have exploration-based puzzles and the like.

According to Game Rant, “Resident Evil 7” is still on-schedule when it comes to its release date for the three major platforms: PS4, Xbox One, and PC. With this, players will have something to look forward to, as the game is still pretty much covered up in mysteries due to the fact that Capcom is not really revealing much.

So far, Capcom has shown some VR demos, one of which does not include gameplay, as well as a creepy “Lantern” demo where the player is tasked to hide from an old woman. Fans cannot draw any comparison from the game’s predecessors, but its similarities with the “Silent Hill P.T.” game are aplenty. As such, fans think that “Resident Evil 7” is an entirely new horror game.

However, GameSpot reports that spending four hours of gameplay during their recent trip to Capcom Japan, they learned that “Resident Evil 7” adheres to every aspect of a horror survival game. The game implements inventory management, item scavenging, and a constant feeling of dread in every corner.

The same report goes so far as to remark that the game closely follows the core tenets of the “Resident Evil” series, in such a way that it closely resembles the original game set in the first person instead. Basically, the demo is set in a mansion riddled with hidden paths and corridors before opening up into the rest of a derelict South American plantation.

As such, for fans who have been waiting for years in order for the series to veer back into its roots, they are certainly excited once it gets released on Jan. 24, 2017.
