New Resident Evil 7 Biohazard trailer introduces new characters

Check out a found footage video tape segment from next year’s horror sequel

Hey PlayStation fans, Resident Evil 7 Biohazard brings its terrifying horror experience to Gamescom in Cologne, Germany this week where visitors can check out the Beginning Hour demo in the intense PlayStation VR mode at Sony’s booth.

If you didn’t catch the original announcement, you can also experience the horror at home with the Beginning Hour demo, available now for PS Plus members! Evil comes home on 24th January 2017 on PlayStation 4 (with the full gameplay experience available via the included optional PlayStation VR mode).

Resident Evil 7 Biohazard

Resident Evil 7 Biohazard takes place in Dulvey, Louisiana, where something’s amiss. Nobody’s heard from Jack or Marguerite Baker in ages, with rumours flying about what may have happened to them.

At the end of Beginning Hour, you see a tagline that says “Meet the Family,” and in that demo, you get a glimpse at the supposedly missing Jack Baker. We now have some fresh new video and screenshots that introduce more mysterious characters and offer a further look into the terrifying plantation grounds from the upcoming survival horror game. With this latest info drop, you’ll encounter Marguerite, another one of the mysterious family members in the game.

While Beginning Hour acts as a set-up for the main game to provide a sense of the tense atmosphere that awaits you, this time you’ll get to see a found footage video tape segment that will appear in the final game. (And don’t worry, your eyes aren’t playing tricks, you may notice the graphical effects that make everything look like they’re taken from a videotape, which is distinct to these segments and aren’t representative of the graphics in the rest of the game.)

If you played Beginning Hour, you encountered one of these found footage type segments where you were introduced to the “Sewer Gators” film crew and witnessed their grisly fate. This time, you’ll get a sneak peek at content from a tape labelled “Mia,” and you’ll get to see some other areas of the house that you saw in Beginning Hour and characters within – including Marguerite.

Who is the young woman in the videotape? What does Marguerite want with her, and will she escape? We can say that while the young woman may be the focus of this particular found footage video tape segment, you won’t be playing as her in the main game. You’ll have to wait a little longer to find out more about the other characters and what happens in the game!

If you haven’t already, you can experience the horror now with the Beginning Hour demo, available now on PS4 for PS Plus members! Evil comes home on 24th January 2017.

Isn’t Resident Evil called Biohazard in Japan? What are they calling this game there?

Please be Rebbeca Chambers, the only cast member I think that has never reappeared in the timeline past RE1

2.1

I believe she’s gonna be in the next CGI film.

WHAT ABOUT THE DELETING DUMMY FINGER

Yawn inducing. I know everyone is going to love this more than the last entries but I loved those, they were some of the few games left coming from Japan that I loved on a technical level; graphically, controls-wise, built for co op. This I’m going to pass on as it seems to rely mostly on the horror atmosphere, the gameplay doesn’t appeal to me and I’m not a fan of horror by itself.

4.1

so, you loved a fake Resident Evil?

Fake resident evil? Re 4/5/6 were brilliant, but I’m not sure on re7 yet I want to see some shooting.

4.3

they are Fake Resident Evil, it only had the name and some Resident evil character, but it wasn’t Resident Evil. With 7 I’m asking If the game will be like the first 3 resident evil games, but with different perspective

I hope the final game will be like the classic Resident Evil (1,2 and 3) but with different perspective, and not some kind of P.T, Outlast and other BS.
I would like to see the return of notes sparsed in the map, where you read on what happend because I loved reading notes in the old Resident Evil games

looks incredible. can’t wait.

This looks interesting as a horror game but why is this Res 7, a spin off yeah but it shouldn’t be numbered. Numbered Res games are all 3rd person and should remain so. Plus I was really hoping this would have zombies.. really miss them in Res games. Oh well guess I will just wait for Res 2 remake, providing Capcom don’t screw that up.

So is it just me who can’t pre order the game on the UK store, or nah?
