Are Capcom actually going to release Resident Evil 7, or just keep adding content to the demo until it’s basically a full game?
The publisher announced today that it’s added a slew of new rooms to the free demo it launched at E3 this year, while expanding its availability from PlayStation Plus subscribers to anyone with a PS4. They also took the excuse to show off the fact that the demo’s racked up 3 million downloads so far, and show off a new trailer that essentially serves as a blindingly unsubtle homage to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (not that I’m complaining or anything, the world needs more Leatherface).
Depending on how committed you are to the greater Resident Evil franchise, you may also be pleased to know that Capcom announced a new CGI-animated feature film, Resident Evil: Vendetta. Japan will get it in spring 2017, but no word on the rest of the world.
As for the game, that’ll hit PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 from January 24th — though the demo is still mysteriously tied to the Sony platform. That means I haven’t touched it yet, because my PS4 Slim doesn’t arrive until tomorrow. I could lie and say I’ll bother to update this post with my thoughts once I’ve played it, but you deserve better than that, dear readers.
