ESRB rating reveals new Resident Evil 7 story details

re71

I’m going to start this by giving a spoiler warning. I mean, sure, we don’t get super spoilers that ruin entire parts of the game’s plot, but we still get some little spoilers here nonetheless. The “here” comes in the form of Resident Evil 7’s ESRB rating.

The main character’s name is Ethan (I hope there’s no Jason), and he finds himself in the game’s derelict plantation mansion looking for his wife. The story will have some “fucks” and “shits” along the way through the dialogue, and, of course, scenes of explicit violence and gore. (A man will have a shovel dug into his face, and someone else gets their leg severed by one from the knee down.)

Though we’ve yet to see any actual combat, the game will let players use pistols, shotguns, flamethrowers, explosive and chainsaws to take on mutant baddies. It’s interesting they note “mutant creatures” as opposed to just regular ol’ zombies, because, again, we haven’t seen any of that yet in the trailers and such.

We’ll keep you updated with more Resident Evil 7 news!

    Guy kills another guy with a shovel on Louisiana, with zombies around. 10/10 GOTY

  • LoveAnimation

    I guess there is going to be plenty of comparisons between this game and Outlast 2 because they are both about a man searching for his wife, they get released around the same time and plenty of other similar stuff.

    • Andrey Martim

      Silent Hill 2 also have this story at the beggining, is nothing new.

      Also we have two RE games with the “someone is searching their missing family” premise, RE2 and Code Veronica.

      • LoveAnimation

        Yea i know that the min character searching for a loved one is nothing new in horror games but peopl wi probaysill compare this game and utlast 2 because so far they seem pretty siilar and people on the internet love to compare and argue about things like this.

        • Patric Nilsson

          True. Despite that RE7 has been in development since early 2014 people will still argue this.

          • Rourke Keegan

            Actually 2012, Capcom said that they launched into RE7 almost immediatly after RE6 was finished.

          • Chris Hawk

            I think that even capcom knew that they fucked up right after they made RE6.

          • Andrey Martim

            A build of RE7 was cancelled. There are art of it on the internet.

        • Chris Hawk

          As far I know, that finding your wife story is not happening in the full game of outlast 2. It was only something for the demo just like the teaser demo RE7 with the video crew.

  • Mohammad A. Fikree

    Good thing you screenshot that because it’s no longer at their website. Great timing!

  • DeathNote81

    (Sobs) Who cares?! It’s in F.P.!

  • Nickolaidas
  • Patric Nilsson

    Just something I’d like to say to everybody I’ve argued with because they kept saying this would be just like Outlast without any real weapon play:
    Told you so!

    • Chris Hawk

      Ikr!? We get real references this time. Yeah for us!!

  • Chris Hawk

    Awesome! confirmation without capcom doing it. I mean there’s gonna be fucking flamethrowers and chainsaws for christ sake! This is gonna be so fucking awesome!!

    • Shane

      Here’s the thing, I would have rather gone into the game blind and had the surprise of finding those weapons, we knew about the pistol and shotgun but nothing about a flamethrower or chainsaw. This leak is making many people relax, but Capcom has a media release schedule planned out for a reason.

      • Chris Hawk

        Well I would’ve like going blind better too ,but I don’t know it does add that sense of build-up because you know it’s there but you have to find it kind of thing .

      • disqus_qwYHorFTGc

        I’m just hoping we don’t know 80% of the games story when it comes out, unlike RE5 and 6

        • Zain

          The producer said they’re gonna get us to the game with so little info bout the story so I guess we’re safe on that aspect for a better experience 😀

  • Xuchilpaba

    Mutant creature = B.O.W ?
    I’d kill for a well designed bow. I’m bored of all those uninspired giant fleshy mess they pushing for as adversaries. And since this game will be a FPS, enemy design’s importance is even more heightened.

    • Chris Hawk

      Just…like…FUCK YEAH!! I want new original B.O.W.’s at this point. That’s what I’m rooting for at this point. Exploration- Check! Puzzle-solving-Check! Managing limited resources-Check! Combat in a horrifying situation-Check! B.O.W’s-Check!. Last thing we got is Enemy Design.

    • Yudha

      Don’t forget about some returning B.O.Ws. Maybe Hunters or Lickers? So we will feel more connected with older RE titles.

      • Xuchilpaba

        Remember Outbreak lady Lickers? I kind of liked those.

  • Yudha

    The only think I’m worried about right now is that they gonna make Ethan a Silent Protagonist. Just like Clancy. But considering the Unknown Man from beginning hour and Mia from lantern do speak, I guess it’s 50:50

    • Rourke Keegan

      Technically, Clancy DOES speak, in the E3 reveal. We hear him say “What the fuck? I’m going to end up just like Andre”, which is probably from either another trailer or an extension to Beginning Hour.

      • Yudha

        Ohh really? I thought it was Pete’s voice. Thanks for the correction!

      • Chris Hawk

        I think there’s gonna be a tape in RE7. That is a extension of Beginning Hour ,or we are just gonna get another teaser demo.
