The “Resident Evil” horror video game franchise is the best when it comes to giving its fans the creeps and thrills of surviving a zombie-themed holocaust. And by simply looking at the latest game trailer of the 11th installment in the series, “Resident Evil 7,” it looks like game developer Capcom has once again created a terrifying yet irresistible gaming experience.
The trailer, which was unveiled at the ongoing Gamescom 2016 in Cologne, Germany, is different from the previous “Beginning Hour” teasers from its predecessors, according to Engadget, and it is because instead of offering a video preview, this one comes in the form of found footage, which is a showcase of the actual gameplay.
The video showcases the voice of what seems to be a woman who is trying to communicate with another person, probably asking for help while she appears to be getting chased by another woman. She eventually ends up in an abandoned cabin, where right after another woman holding a lantern is shown, probably the same one who is looking for the one who took solace in the cabin. The trailer ends in the creepiest way possible, when out of nowhere, the scary one with the lantern shows right beside the woman’s face, whispering, “Where do you think you’re going?”
As previously said, this trailer is the first time that Capcom elected to show an actual in-game or gameplay footage since the previous ones were merely demonstrations or a glimpse of some of the features and improvements of the game title.
Now, there’s even great expectation for the actual game to live up to the hype, especially with the most impressive trailer the creators could muster.
“Resident Evil 7” is scheduled for a full game release in January 2017 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
