Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is the latest instalment in the long-running survival horror franchise. In it, you play as Ethan Winters, whose wife Mia went missing three years ago. Now you've tracked her down to a remote Louisiana plantation, but she's not alone: there are monsters everywhere!
The game has been terrifying players since it was first released back in September 2016 as part of an early access beta test on PS4 and Xbox One consoles. The full version will be released on 24 January 2017 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One but some gamers have already decided that they're too scared to finish it because it's "too scary". So, if you're easily frightened by games then should you even bother trying out Resident Evil 7?
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is so scary that some people might find it too frightening to complete, says the person behind its terrifying demo.
"I think for some people this game will be too scary. It's always been our intention to make players feel uncomfortable," Koshi Nakanishi, director on Resident Evil 7: Biohazard and producer at Capcom, told GamesRadar+. "But if you're able to overcome that feeling and keep going... I think that's when a player is truly getting into the game."
Nakanishi also revealed that he was inspired by classic horror movies such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Night of the Living Dead when creating Resident Evil 7's atmosphere.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is due out on 24 January 2017. It will be available for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will cost $59.99 USD (around R1,300).
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is a survival horror game that has a first-person perspective. It's also less action-focused than previous installments in the series were, taking more inspiration from games like Amnesia and Outlast.
In order to survive your time with Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, you'll have to prepare yourself for the horrors ahead by stocking up on supplies like healing herbs and ammunition so you can fight back when enemies attack you.
For those who want a little something extra with their game, there are several editions available. The standard edition ($59.99) contains the game itself and no extra content, while the deluxe edition ($89.99) includes some physical items like an artbook, strategy guide and soundtrack CD as well as some digital bonuses like in-game currency that can be used to buy new costumes. Both versions of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard are also available for purchase at Best Buy with an additional $10 discount if you preorder them through BestBuy's Gamers Club program.
The gold edition features everything from those two packages plus a few more goodies: two steelbook cases (for storing your game discs), another art book filled with concept sketches from series creator Shinji Mikami and an action figure of Ethan Winters himself! If you're looking for even more Resident Evil merchandise this holiday season—and who isn't?—you can pick up the “Zombie Pack” containing three additional DLCs (Desperate Escape) that put players back into the shoes of classic RE star Chris Redfield). This bundle sells for $29.99 on its own or bundled together with either version of RE7 for $79.99 or $89.99 respectively).
Resident Evil 7 is a game that takes place in Louisiana. You play as Ethan Winters, whose wife Mia has been missing for three years.
You have to find her by entering the Baker family mansion and rescuing her from their clutches.
The Bakers are a family of cannibals, so you need to be careful not to get caught by them or you’ll end up on their dinner table!
If you’re the kind of person who gets easily scared, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard isn’t for you. The game is filled with jump scares, creepy characters and dark environments that might keep you up at night.
But if you can handle a little bit of fear, then this is one of the most fun games I have played in recent memory. It has everything that makes Resident Evil great—great combat, great puzzles and some really cool set pieces. It also has a lot more focus on story than previous titles in the franchise did which helps bring back some of its horror roots from way back when it was first released on PlayStation 1!
The game is extremely dark. It's more of a survival horror game than any other Resident Evil title, and this is done on purpose. The darkness creates a claustrophobic feeling in the player, where they can't see what's around them or behind them. This makes it easier to scare you because you're not sure what's happening around you at all times.
The darkness is also used as a way to hide enemies from view until they attack you, which makes for some great jump scares throughout the game (and sometimes even when you think something might be attacking).
If you've never played a Resident Evil game before, then Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is a great place to start. The RE series has always been known for its jump scares and shocking moments, but with this release Capcom has taken the scare factor to new levels. The result is an experience that's tense, exciting, and above all else incredibly immersive thanks to its first-person perspective.
However there are some players who feel like Resident Evil 7 is just too scary to enjoy—and they're right! Unfortunately this isn't something I can fix with words on a page—it's an emotional response that comes from your own experiences as an individual player (or non-player if you're one of those people).
Resident Evil 7 isn't all about jumping out at you -- there are plenty of psychological scares, too.
The game is more about atmosphere than jump scares. It's more about getting under your skin and making you feel uncomfortable than just relying on cheap tricks to make you jump in your seat. It's even more about making you feel like you are in danger, or that something bad is happening behind closed doors, or that someone is watching over your shoulder as they stalk their next victim.
The whole game takes place indoors, so it's a lot easier to develop this feeling of being trapped and cornered within the confines of an old Louisiana house full of dangerous mutated creatures called "mold." You'll constantly be trying not just to survive but also escape from this place while searching for clues as to why all these monsters exist here in the first place!
We hope that this article has made you aware of the potential dangers of playing Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, and that if you are planning on getting it for yourself or anyone else then you will have a less than frightening time.
