E3 2016: New Resident Evil 7 details revealed

re7

Capcom has just concluded their Resident Evil 7 stream where they sat down with the game’s developer. Not a lot was revealed, since they don’t want to spoil anything from the story, but we have a decent amount of new information to chew on.

The game’s demo that is currently available on PlayStation 4 for PlayStation Plus subscribers, titled “Beginning Hour,” has been described in an official press release as being separate from the main game. It’s actually a prelude that leads up to the events of the game. As the developer described the demo, it’s more about setting the tone for the game.

The game’s protagonist will be a normal person, not someone with the skillset that comes with being a STARS officer or like other heroes/heroines from the series’ past (think Outbreak). Those that have been left wondering how this is still Resident Evil shouldn’t worry. It’s been stated that it will all make sense in the end, and it was intended for us to question what we’re seeing, and for us to speculate and make any possible connections to the series’ lore.

Oh, and one more thing: there won’t be any QTE’s in the game.

Stay tuned for more!

  • Mr.Csquared

    Thank you guys for doing this! My hype and interest just keeps getting higher and higher!

    This game is a total reboot from the sound of things. It was time to wipe the slate clean anyway. Though I wonder if the main character will end up being a create your own avatar

    • Brandon Taylor Smith

      I would love this to the moon. and back.

        The fact that it’s first person makes me think that the main character will be a player avatar. It makes sense because of the whole “regular untrained person”, it definitely makes sense that the player would be considered the untrained everyman. In terms of narrative, I do think it was time to wipe the slate clean because of RE6’s whole “Worldwide Bioterror” storyline, there was really no where else to go. And when it says The Family, I don’t think it’s talking about The Simmon’s Family, I think it’s talking about the plantation owners.

    This just gets better and better and better…

    I been a fan of RE from the beginning and I am hoping it doesn’t look anything like this demo cause if it is first person. I could never call it an RE it would just be a PT/Outlast type of game…As an RE fan it serverly disppointed me playing the demo if that is what I got to look forward to. I am not saying I wont play this game ever but if it is like what the demo showed then I will be trying it as a non RE fan.

      I own all games 1-6 and all spin offs and I like the fact it feels different , Resident evil has never been just one game style though , first few games were Fixed camera and tank controls , then we had survivor in 1st person view , then we had RE4 change the style to 3rd person view and more action and more of the same for RE5 and 6 And now we have 1st person again but this is just a Prologue demo and we didn’t even get to try out the combat yet so we can’t really pass too much judgment on it yet.

      • Yuki Aya Masahiko

        I own all of them as well including not so popular ones which even I didn’t like them. And I kno a lot has changed some for the better and some for the worse. I am not saying I won’t try it just from what I seen of the demo makes it seem more of a PT/Outlast title then an RE. I just am disappointed with it so far but I am still going to give it a chance. Just not sure if I should as a fan of RE or judge it solely on the survival horror aspect so I’m not biest.

      • Julia Kaeidman

        It’s not confirmed that it will be 1st person, we don’t know yet..There is a good chance that it will be third person like rest of the games, Like they said Demo has nothing to do with Resident Evil 7…Final product won’t include any of these character sor settings from demo, Its just to show people what direction it’s going, to prove it WILL be scary as demo..

    “Beginning Hour” is an initialism for “BioHazard” (B and H). Similar to how PT stood for Playable Teaser.

  • Ken Gibson

    I will play it only for the critical storyline. Other than that, i expected resident evil 7 to be more like the last war in biohazard. Leon gives up on ada, chris and jill are torn apart, a new fear factor system that causes panicky movement to be unwieldly in pressurecooker situations. Wesker is reborn. Jake meets dad. A climatic experience of horror and action. Instead? I get ghostfacers and a sandbox amityville silent hill ripoff. Whoever has written the script to this game, please throw it away as they are not interested or has used none of the source material and has made up their own(*coughsdmccoughs*) pay attention to scriptlines. At least when bungie left halo, 343 still stuck to the halo canon. Why cant u capcom? Stop sinking your ships with lackluster games like that excuse for street fighter.

      Go make your own games and quit complaining. 😉

    a normal person …. HOLY SHIT YEAH!!!

    Was the part I liked the most aswell.

    If they trying to create a new kind of RE they might need to move on from atleast some of the main cast,for me personally all of them.

    QTE gone this part I like aswell.

    If done well QTE can work but personally thought that button mashing takes away alot from what happening on screen both storywise and gameplaywise if one i suddenly forced to button mash.

  • Armando R. Arroyo

    thank you for the RE Zero & RE1 Remakes and I love it! and can’t wait to get RE2 Remake but this is almost 20 years we need RE3 Remake too! and please remastered HD Code Veronica those are the best games ever and WE WANT ALL PHYSICAL DISK(S) for the ones that don’t go online we begged way to long we are the fans that paid out money for you please give us our complete collection for PS4 again PHYSICAL DISK(S) Also about the Resident Evil 4 for PS4 physical disk version (USA) is it HD Remastered ? or is it only ported from PS2 to PS4 and is the graphic’s just like the PS2 version I can not find any info about it

  • coolsavon

    QTE isn’t bad if done right. RE4’s QTEs for the most part – were actually pretty fun/entertaining. but oh well, im excited to see RE7 now if the demo wasn’t actually how the game will be like,

    • Chris Hawk

      True but resident evil 4 was a different beast with it’s emphasis on action. QTE’s in this game would probably feel out of place and annoying.
