The survival horror genre creepily crawls back into the franchise which coined the term. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (PC) is Capcom’s return to the roots while giving a different perspective and showing a different slice of the Resident Evil world. Ethan Winters’ search for his wife takes him to the estate of the Baker family, deep in Louisiana swamps. What he discovers there are things that will shake him to the core.
Resident Evil 7 is the first in the franchise to use a first-person perspective throughout the entire experience for maximum immersion. See the decaying Baker estate through the terrified eyes of Ethan Winters. In Resident Evil 7 for the first time in the series you will share the perspective of your character when the deranged enemies relentlessly hunt you. Resident Evil 7 Biohazard VR integration augments the immersion in a heart-stopping experience that will leave you terrified for hours.
Familiar universe, new story
Meet Ethan Winters. Ethan lost his wife three years ago and until recently he thought her dead. After a cryptic message he leaves to look for her only to arrive at an old estate in Louisiana swamps. The inhabitants are not a friendly bunch, however. Resident Evil 7’s primary antagonist is the Baker family, four insane, cannibalistic people that may not be even human anymore. Uncovering the secrets of the mansion and this family may be Ethan’s only way of surviving the ordeal.
Resident Evil 7 moves away from the action-centered recent RE titles. Don’t expect to feel like a superhuman sharpshooter in Resident Evil 7 gameplay. The bullets are scarce, the enemies don’t die easily or at all and Ethan is not the soldier who can take as much damage as he can deal. Be prepared to hide, to run, and to fight frantically for your life when the enemies discover you. Resident Evil 7 may a first-person perspective game, but it definitely isn’t a shooter.
Resident Evil 7 creatively uses the phenomenon of the found footage horror films in its gameplay. As Ethan discover tapes scattered around the estate by the previous victims of the Bakers. Each tape is a new gameplay section, showing you first-hand what the previous crew discovered and endured. Can you assemble all the pieces and figure out what you are actually up against?
Resident Evil 7 offers a new gameplay and story perspective on the franchise. A strong return to the survival horror genre, with mysteries to solve, and powerful enemies that are easier to avoid than to kill.
