Xbox team announced today that Resident Evil VII: biohazard is coming to Xbox One on January 24th, 2017. Read below
“The game’s subtitle, biohazard, also evokes a return to the classic entries in the franchise. biohazard is the Japanese name of the series, so does that mean this entry will have a connection to the well-established Resident Evil lore, or is this a reimagining of the series that will redefine survivor-horror as well know it? We only have seven months to find out – and we can’t wait for what already looks like one of the most thrilling, chilling Resident Evil experiences to date.”
Evoking a simple-yet-frighteningly effective “don’t go into the basement” aesthetic, Capcom’s gameplay trailer showcased an abandoned, dilapidated house possibly located in Louisiana – if the flashes of a newspaper headline exclaiming “GHOSTS SIGHTED IN BAYOU” are anything to go by. Presented in a brand-new, first-person perspective for maximum fright immersion, the gameplay snippet featured a man picking up a phone (one that would look right at home in the ’90s, might we add) with a Southern-voiced woman on the other end.
