Gamescom 2016: New Resident Evil 7 biohazard trailer and screens have been released!

re78 copy

Resident Evil 7’s “Beginning Hour” demo ended with a found footage-style segment that further deepened the mystery behind what’s going on in the story. There will be more of that in the main game. And with this brand new gameplay trailer we get a taste of another found footage scenario (complete with the same type of filter.)

Here we see through the eyes of a girl being pursued by a crazy old woman throughout a part of the plantation house the game is set in. Things look extremely eerie, what with baby dolls hanging around that reminded me a lot of Alex Wesker. Check out the trailer and brand new screens below!

Resident Evil 7 biohazard will be released on January 24 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

    So…. is it safe to assume that this old woman might be Marguerite Baker?

    And I think (and some other people on YouTube too) that there will be 2 mode (or timeline) in the main game. Present is when you control the main protagonist with guns, other mechanics, etc. And the flashback mode where we control a player with a found footage style like this and Clancy’s.

    • Mr.Csquared

      It has been confirmed to be Marguerite and I believe this girl is one of the kidnappedMissin. People from the new papers. The bakers took them all to experiment on or worse. I’ll share more in my theory comment

  • Mr.Csquared

    Here is my theory.

    It’s been confirmed in the blog post this is an actual VHS tape segment from the real game. We see more of the Baker mansion here and it seems like this girl talking to an Ethan (main character?) and is warning him about the Bakers. More specifically Marguerite who is seen in this trailer and is obviously a ViP antagonist in the game. It’s obvious the family is infected with a virus that allows them to keep some intelligence where they can talk and kidnap people for god knows what. Maybe tests subjects? Who Knows but I am intrigued by this and want more!

    So this is only a segment of the game revealing the story. You are defenses yes but perhaps that’s just this segment and in the real world, you (Ethan?) are able to defend yourself with weapons.

    • Yudha

      Care to share the link to blog? 😀

      • Mr.Csquared

        Here ya go. http://bit.ly/RE7Lantern

        Maybe today at Gamescom or maybe at TGS we will see actual survival gameplay. So far we know a Bit of the story and that horror, atmosphere and mystery is cranked up! (Yay!)

        • Yudha

          And might be a good way for Capcom to actually be true to their words. It’s a great marketing strategy I get it but some of the old school fans out there wants to see their beloved series return to it’s roots in a new refreshing way.

          And here I am, still waiting for the demo to be released on Steam 🙁

    • Shane

      I second this theory. The VHS tapes will flesh out the history behind the plantation while our modern day character will be the main event with weapons, item management and the rest of the main mechanics.

  • LoveAnimation

    Seems like the main enemies of the game are going to be crazy people that are probably infected by something but i guess there will be monsters too.

    • Mark Merrett

      Kinda like re4 i think but less people and under their own control. I bet as the game moves on they have mutations or they have some kind of monster children/family members the normalish ones we have seen, tend to. Im wondering if this is an effect of the c virus when it doesn’t turn people into zombies or new one? Will be a resurrection of umbrella?

      • Yudha

        Kinda reminds me of The Hills Have Eyes or the Wrong Turn movies

  • John Ruth

    Guess I’m pretty alone here but my feelings are this Trailer is unimaginative and boring. I hope these Tape parts are only small segments of the Game were you actually have to flee against an overpowered monster. Currently, from what they’ve show in the lantern trailer, the Game can be some random in development Title presented by some Indie guys via Steam.

    • Chris Hawk

      I’m honestly excited but I see your concerns. Don’t worry though combat was already confirmed. I think this was here to show off more atmosphere and enemy behaviors. The enemies presented to me look very ominous in how they walk slowly after you.

    • Xuchilpaba

      You’re not alone.

  • Naissus

    This looks like a continuation of Outlast, not Resident Evil.

    • Chris Hawk

      Let me guess, its because it’s first person right?

      • Mark Merrett

        Because its doing the same kind a things outlast did minus the camera+batteries. I hope the part where you can attack brings it back to more re style game play, just in first person.

        • Chris Hawk

          Well it better. I’m pretty positive that gunplay is happening. This trailer just shows stealth is going to be a option

          • Naissus

            I would like to see that. It would be great if the game was created from the ground up to be played in different ways (stealth, guns, mix). For every scenario there is the option to fight or sneak.

          • Chris Hawk

            Exactly It sounds fucking awesome. They are hinting at it so that got me stoked

      • Shane

        We even have a screenshot of a Shotgun on this very article, some people.

      • Naissus

        No, that would be dumb. its the atmosphere, being chased my a person that looks like an Outlast mutant, also the mutant putting a box in your way to prevent you from traveling in that direction reminds me of a certain part in Outlast Whistelblower I believe.

        • Chris Hawk

          Atmosphere is pretty much a more dilapidated REmake. This mutant doesn’t even look close to the mutants from outlast. It looks like a ganado from RE4 but with a huge graphics update ,or the ghost from P.T.

          • Naissus

            I am sure this is some sort of a variant to Las Plagas. The use of colors is more to Outlast than Remake. While both RE7 and Remake are dilapidated mansions. Remake had a significant variety in colors. It felt more real. While RE7 along with Outlast reused the same colors a bit too much for me.

          • Chris Hawk

            You have a good eye in colors on environments ,but that doesn’t mean it’ll look like outlast.

        • Shane

          And Outlast mutants look like Ganado from RE4. RE7 doesn’t have to reinvent the wheel like RE has done in the past. Let’s not pretend like horror games are somehow unique, those days are largely finished.

          • Chris Hawk

            Very true It’s extremely hard to make something incredibly original nowadays especially in horror.

          • Naissus

            I hope you are wrong. I think there is room for originality. I would prefer that RE go back to the roots and keep everything fairly simple. Honestly, I would prefer Capcom, create a Dino Crisis REmake followed by a true Dino Crisis 3. But its not gonna happen.

  • D. Maki

    The Playstation Blog confirmed It is Marguerite Baker and the girl in the video is named Mia.

  • Shane

    Gonna just throw out some of my own speculation, but this girl you play as in the video may be the infected girl that stabs Pete in the back.

  • disqus_qwYHorFTGc

    I really hope that we don’t know 80% of the games story by the time it comes out like RE5, 6, and Revelations. Just keep people guessing and keep the mystery/mystique that it’s bringing, actually surprise people

  • Chris Hawk

    I will say that this was missed opportunity. It could’ve showed off gunplay to ease concerns ,but capcom are so focused on keeping stuff secret. Now I have to deal with bitching in the comment sections (Not this comment section. I mean the other ones) Thanks Capcom. Excited for the game tho as i already know that there will be gunplay and puzzles.

    • Shane

      I think we will be seeing more hands on impressions from the media within the next day or so. I read a preview that mentioned that turntable like puzzle we see in the footage, in addition to that he/she also mentioned Marguerite saying things while looking for the player and what she does when she spots you.

      • Chris Hawk

        Yeah that sounds cool. I just want them to show the gun-play already ,so people will stop bitching.

    • Mr.Csquared

      Actually the video I posted above explains the marketing strategy quite nicely and its interesting. Despite not apart of the real game, the point of the Beginning Hour teaser is to showcase the atmosphere and tone with exploration and putting stuff together. The point of this new demo actually from the real game as one of the tapes you can find, showcases the stealth and using that against Marguerite with the added puzzle room. Next I assume at TGS is Combat and enemies.

      • Chris Hawk

        I do respect that. It’s a pretty smart tactic tho.

  • Henrikm

    I am personally glad of RE7 route for me it feels very eerie and spooky than the series been in a very long time.

    Maybe the girl that knife the reporter guy is the girl we se in this trailer??? If one now go for the timeline thingie some people seem to talk about??

  • Andy

    Jump Scare walking simulator: Resident Evil Edition.

    Nothing about this game is getting me excited for this in the slightest. It’s all walking around and looking at things. At the end was a very predictable boo!! jump scare. This is not what I wanted RE to become when returning to the world of survival horror. :/

    • Yudha

      They confirmed that combat and some other RE Classic game mechanics will be present in the full game. I get it, they need to show it to the public right away but I guess it’s kinda too early for your conclusion.

    • Mr.Csquared

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFHj2sxGXYc Watch and listen to this about everything on the demo and why you should hold your damn horses. Combat and other footage and details is coming at TGS.

      • Chris Hawk

        I really hope they show combat at tgs. That’s what is worrying me right now

        • Mr.Csquared

          We know for a fact there is combat from the picture of a shotgun and that leaked picture from the e3 reveal with you holding a glock pistol and that every interview confirms it and because it’s Resident Evil. We just need to see it in action and since RE7 will be on stage at the event, that’s my bet on when we’ll see it in HD.

          • Chris Hawk

            I know for a fact that combat is happening. I just have a bad feeling they’ll get too secretive and just show puzzles instead of combat ,but man if they do I can’t wait to see the haters eat their words.

          • Mr.Csquared

            Judging from how Kawata’s translator and maybe Kawata himself sounded in his gamescom interview, they are heavily reassuring that combat/item and resource management and the zombies of the game will be shown soon as they straight up acknowledge the fans’ worries. So again, TGS is where I’m betting top dollar is where we will see gunplay since it is on conference stage and big things usually happen at that show. And hell yeah, i’m gonna laugh and enjoy all of the haters eat their words but enjoy real cool fans have their fears die out and actually look forward to the game.

          • Chris Hawk

            Yes that would be a good day.
