Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is rapidly approaching release, naturally making it ripe to be brought up during Sony’s PlayStation Experience keynote today. The game won’t be available to the public until January, but Capcom isn’t wasting time after the positive reception to their Beginning Hour demo that came to the PlayStation Store this past Summer, as Resident Evil 7: Biohazard’s demo will receive a massive update tonight.
This update was teased with a new trailer that spotlighted a bit more of the game’s storyline, which will involve all-new protagonist, Ethan nosing into the bayou household of the murderous Baker family to search for his missing wife, in a hefty departure from the series’ previous games’ plotlines. Supernatural enemies will still be included in the game however, with some more monstrous foes also glimpsed in the new trailer. It’s presumed that the updated demo will possibly pit PlayStation 4 owners against these foes for the first time, but most excitingly, this update will bring PlayStation VR compatibility to the demo! The final release of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard on PlayStation 4 will also feature fill compatibility with PlayStation VR.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on January 24th, 2017, in all territories except Japan, where the game will instead release on January 26th. The PlayStation 4 version of the game will also receive DLC releases ahead of the Xbox One and PC versions, as was confirmed with the first DLC expansion, Banned Footage being a timed exclusive on PlayStation 4 when it releases.
