Yes, Resident Evil 7 will have guns; check out the shotgun!

shottie

With Resident Evil 7, Capcom is planning to bring to series back to its roots, while also moving it forward with a new gameplay perspective. But one thing that’s been worrying fans is the lack of combat being shown.

Capcom has been really careful about what they’ve been showing in their trailers. They’ve been slowly peeling back layers of the game, instead of outright revealing everything there is to the game before it launches. So, after confirming that the game will actually have combat, Capcom has given us a visual taste of the mechanic.

Below you’ll find a new video that showcases the shotgun being retrieved from an item box. Yes, item boxes are back! Check it out below.

    I just want it noooooooow!!! 😭😭😭😭😭😭

  • Xuchilpaba

    That’s very good. It’s means I can kill that old bastard who made me suffer and drove me mad with his “welcome to the family, son” bullshit, I’m gonna disown that particular bastard, in the face, point blank.

    • Yudha

      Actually that’ll make a great finishing move for the final boss battle against Jack Baker (If he’s the final boss)

  • Chris Hawk

    Best…thing…EVER!!!!! This small segment just shows how resident evil this is gonna be. I’m so excited

  • Zain

    Im not sure if these 10 clips will shut the whiny haters sayin its an outlast clone lol…Oh well Im sure they’ll find smthn else to bitch bout smh -_- anyways Im SUPER EXCITED for it!!! I hope they slide in a zombie/monster clip tho XD

    • Xuchilpaba

      Now is a good time to not bring it up again, when people have already already forgot that. So let it die, If you repeat it 40 times, it becomes real!

      • Zain

        Trust me theres still ppl think that way bout it lol

    • Chris Hawk

      Yeah according to their logic, Outlast 2 is ripoff of RE4 because they both have killer villagers. I really hope they show a zombie/monster clip and a head explosion too.

      • Zain

        I hope so too, and whats funny is that RE2 brought new characters with it but with RE7 its bad? Lmao how would u wanna make the gamers be scared or whatever if we play as Leon or Chris? Like…I dont hv any problem with a new protagonist cuz no 1 knows the outcome of anything for example who lives and who dont u feel me? For me RE is all bout this universe filled with viruses and monsters, and then u hv stories within this world.. It doesnt hv to be always bout these old characters lol theres this guy who literally said “Atleast RE4 felt like an RE game cuz we played as Leon” :l…Anyways, Im sure RE7 will be an amazing game also the marketing for it is great so far imo πŸ˜€

        • Chris Hawk

          Yeah and Leon was basically a complete different character compared to RE2. There’s much more to resident evil then old characters and a dumb perspective.

          • Alex

            I think the best of Resident Evil is the “feeling” of it. Like you said it’s not about characters, it never was. It’s about atmosphere, which is something the series has been lacking for a decade.

          • Chris Hawk

            And it really seems that they are really getting that feeling down. Like that vol.2 video pretty much shows everything that’s going to make it a resident evil game. From the atmosphere(the room), resource management(itembox), and combat(shotgun). They are really nailing it so far

          • Alex

            Absolutely. It’s so surreal to me because it really feeeels like RE1 but at the same time is very different and I have NO idea what to expect. There is something so surreal about having that feeling fresh again, from a completely different visual perspective. Like, imagine playing RE1 again, but for the first time, and you can look anywhere you want. That’s fucking awesome and anyone who thinks otherwise, is IMO, a dope.

          • Chris Hawk

            I love that it has that familiar yet very different feel. It gives it more of a chance to differentiate itself and stick to a formula. That’s exactly what I want from it. I want something different and better not a game that is trying too hard to be exactly the same as the previous games but only slightly changed (The evil within). It feels forced which can really mess up a experience. RE7 so far doesn’t feel like it’s in the shadow of every other resident evil game.

        • Yudha

          Actually I kinda get that “Atleast RE felt like an RE because we played as…” feeling on RE6 xD well for me anyway, the only thing that helps me survive the action side of RE is because of the characters.

          But I agree too that they have become a very powerful characters. Like nothing can stop them or scare them anymore (Unless maybe it’s a personal stake).

          Let’s hope that with this new atmosphere, RE7 can be the mark of Survival Horror reborn.

    • Yudha

      Better yet… If returning character news is super legit then I hope they drop a clip for it. You know like 3 second of Chris or Ada for example.

      • MassDistraction

        That would be spoilers, though. I’m sick and tired of spoilers in my trailers.

        • Yudha

          Hmmm good point, lol.

  • Henrikm

    They will switch from saying outlast clone too doom clone^^ (and every other fps there is) some will never be satisfied.

  • Andy

    Just becasue it has a shotgun and a item chest doesn’t mean anything. This is pandering to the fans in a very obvious way.

    • Chris Hawk

      Of fucking course, you’re saying this. Yes it does mean something because it shows that there is a big possibility of the game that will be a lot like the originals. Have you seen the kitchen demo lately? That lady is very unstable and aggressive not in a psychopath way but in a person with a uncontrollable viral or parasite controlling her. The esrb rating description even says that the game will have mutated creatures ,so shut up and be patient.

      • Alex

        I feel like the people upset about focusing on new characters are going to try to discredit anything that makes this a true RE game because every time more is revealed they lose ground on their complaints. I can only speak about myself but to me an item box is much more important to RE than any of the characters. RE6 had a ton of familiar characters, and they squandered it.

        • Chris Hawk

          The item box is definitely much more important. It shows that they are listening.

          • Alex

            I unfortunately feel like there is a sect of RE fans that will give pretty much anything “Resident Evil” a pass so long as it’s familiar and comfortable to them. Who gives a shit if it’s a good game or actually played like RE was designed to play, right? Look at Leon’s hair! The irony is, it’s forcing in returning characters that is truly pandering.

          • Chris Hawk

            That’s the thing that made Resident Evil 6 so stupid. It had so much pandering forced bullshit. It had so many characters and references that it made me sick. It’s Chris Redfield so let’s have a giant snake…but it’s invisible oooooohhhhhhh nooooooooo. “It’s raccoon city all over again” says Leon even though he couldn’t tell that the first two people were obviously infected. Oh yeah let’s make a vs. fight against Leon and Chris because the fans love it.

          • Alex

            Absolutely 100% agree.

            The entire time I’m playing RE6 I felt like the game was saying “Isn’t this cooool?!” And every time I’d have to say “not really, it’s mostly derivative…of itself.” Just the fact that someone actually wrote a character that is “Wesker’s son” is straight up embarrassing. Oh man, my PTSD is kicking in.

          • Chris Hawk

            Hahaha yeah dude. That was me in my ptsd. I can’t stand that game. Seeing this kind of video gets me in tears because I’ve been begging for an actual survival horror resident evil game and we are finally getting it. I never thought that they would do this. It’s a dream come true.

          • Alex

            Clearly we’re all just Capcom sheep who are incapable of being objectively critical of a series we’ve loved for years.

            If this is Capcom “pandering” they can pander to me all night long.

          • Chris Hawk

            Exactly and now let’s go to the pandering train because listening to the fans is the new pandering. #panderingisthebest.

          • Andy

            Didn’t Revelations 1 have an item box? No one made a big deal then. What makes this any different?

          • Xuchilpaba

            Revelations 1 -and 2 for that matter- was an action game and its item box used only for switching weapons and not actual item management and since you can carry every other thing in your inventory it did little sense and it’s almost unnecessary. It was little more than a gimmick. So people were ‘meh’ about it.

            Everybody have been assuming this game will turn out be a P.T/Outlast type of ‘run and hide’ game and now they have been shown the guns, the limited inventory with the item box, a real fucking inventory, no less. Which means item management. It’s kinda big deal because the game has started to look like a survival horror.

      • Mr.Csquared

        I wouldn’t bother dude. I can tell Andy is one of those people that doesn’t pay attention or even bother to do his research where all of his complaints about only fighting the Bakers and no infected enemies for example have been debunked. Pandering….WTF?

        • Chris Hawk

          Yeah sorry, it’s just too tempting. Also yeah pandering?! Like really WTF dude?! That’s makes no fucking sense. Also crime genre vibes? At least we are looking forward to the game. Resident evil 7 is probably going to the best resident evil we’ve seen in years.

          • Mr.Csquared

            Its cool man. I got triggered too and had to tell him off in my comment. Capcom is keeping their word and its pandering? Whatever and I agree. RE7 really has potential to be the best in a long time. I extremely look forward to release and more of these short videos. Wonder what else we will get? Hopefully its weekly too.

          • Chris Hawk

            Yeah its really exciting me. The way they are advertising it helps too. One card at a time and its great. I just need a monster to get blown away by the shotgun and I’m good.

          • Mr.Csquared

            LOL Really. Unlike Andy up there, we appreciate the mystery and no spoilers like past games have been guilty of. I think a good gory headshot would be good enough XD. (From a Magnum maybe?)

          • Chris Hawk

            The mystery makes it better. We haven’t had a good mystery since REmake. Holy shit, a magnum would be the best!! I see that then I’m instantly sold…even tho I already preordered it. Physical copies for the win!!

      • Andy

        I feel like I can’t comment on this site without someone jumping down my throat. Excuse me that I don’t sugar coat everything. Sorry that I’m not as excited as everyone else around here.

        • Mr.Csquared

          Sugar coat? It’s because you either make baseless accusations (Jumping to conclusions) or you keep complaining about things that have already been debunked. Like you said the game doesn’t look like its about virus and monsters when zombies and monsters have been confirmed many times and there are obvious clues about a virus infecting this family. You even commented on an article on this website when Rourke covered the scanning process for RE7 and there were pictures of zombies and mentions of disgusting monsters!

          • Chris Hawk

            Yeah you said it better then me. Well said.

          • Mr.Csquared

            I’m triggered again lol but you were right too about the Item boxes here and in REV1. Rev1’s really was only a weapon box and upgrade place where RE7’s is more the old school ones where you can put any item in to free up space in your inventory. Shows who the real fans are if we know the difference and he doesn’t.

          • Chris Hawk

            Yeah exactly. It’s very old school that’s why I got excited. I hate to be the guy blaming a different opinion ,but I can’t stand a invalid opinion based on baseless accusations and false info.

          • Mr.Csquared

            You and me both man. It’s fine to have different opinions but not really when they are as you said invalid with baseless accusations and false info. Nothing irritates me as much as people that jump to conclusions because they think they know it all.

          • Chris Hawk

            Yeah definitely

        • Chris Hawk

          It’s because you are bitching everytime about it. The item box was in revelations but it wasn’t really a item box. This video showed a real itembox where there’s real survival resource management. It’s like ur finding every excuse to hate it. I’m not sugarcoating it either. I don’t really like that the fact that they are putting in checkpoints. Since you are bitching, we have free will to bitch back.

    • Mr.Csquared

      Let me ask you something hotshot. HOW THE F is it pandering if since the reveal at E3, Capcom has been telling us RE7 will be the return to its survival horror roots and we are gonna get the classic RE gameplay elements? They are showing us with this clip of item boxes in game(and limited inventory) that they are keeping their promises and now you are accusing them of pandering? LOGIC!! (kappa)

    • Zain

      When the game comes out u give ur opinion, like wtf we only got bout 25% of the final game so take a chill pill and wait for more updates mr crime fighter lol

    • Yudha

      But of course guys, he’s favorite response would be “oh this is my opinion. Sorry if I bother you”.

      Well… Sounds to me like you’ve never even pay attention to any of RE gameplay mechanics EVER.

      Item Box on Rev1? You’re comparing RE7 item box to Rev1’s Item box? Really? Let me ask you something, can you store a damn item inside that box aside from weapons? And let me ask you again, from RE 1-CV can you even upgrade a goddamn weapon from those version of item box?

      Can you tell a goddamn difference? NO! because it’s your damn baseless opinion. That’s why.

      • Alex

        It really makes you wonder how many clowns are inundating the internet with their opinions that are totally worthless, but sure they’re “huge fans”.

        I actually would imagine there is a gigantic number of people who haven’t played any RE game prior to 4 and have no idea how to frame what’s happening in RE7. They’ve got some real opinions though.

    • Yudha

      Oh and one more thing…..

      Have you seen the trailer? Normal criminals can’t break through the wall with only a shovel and will definitely burnt to death if he set on fire.

      And that stab to Lucas’s arm? That would’ve been fatal.

      Ohh but of course, screw logic. Because it’s your baseless OPINION

  • Yudha

    The manual saving system is revealed. Thank me later.

    https://youtu.be/oxW4eBdRF_I

    • Chris Hawk

      We already knew this…but the save screen shows 8 mins and 46 seconds into the game and it already shows that he has been exploring ,so it seems like that you are actually exploring pretty early into the game. That gets me excited.

      • Yudha

        Yeah lol but we didn’t exactly knew what would the manual saving media be until now…

        Kinda makes sense they’re going to use the recorder. If only we have to find some cassettes to save…….

        • Chris Hawk

          A recorder is a nice touch. Maybe we’ll get a difficulty where you have to find cassettes to save and no checkpoints.

      • Yudha

        But the objective? Escape from the house? It looks like we’re not playing as Ethan yet in that video are we?

        • Chris Hawk

          Good point. I don’t know. Maybe it’s a sequence to introduce mechanics. It’s very unclear.

          • Mr.Csquared

            Possibly this is all for Beginning Hour? The next update will turn the teaser into a legit demo with all of this since Capcom did say the characters and stetting in the teaser won’t be in the game?

  • Yudha

    And in my theory, the knife could serve as a very helpful item

    https://youtu.be/S-whnhK8IxU

    • Chris Hawk

      A knife in a Resident evil game that is actually useful for once.
