RE7 Teaser Demo Breaks Download Records
Capcom confirmed today that the Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour demo is now the most downloaded single-player demo on PS4 in the first week of release for North America. In addition, the RE7 demo, which is currently only available for PlayStation Plus subscribers, has reached over 2 million downloads worldwide.
“We would like to thank all our fans for the feedback and support – the nail-biting exploration and terrifying atmosphere in the demo is just a taste of what can be expected when the game releases on January 24, 2017” – said the Capcom PR Team.
“The Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour demo portrays events leading up to the main game and ties directly into the impactful PlayStation VR “KITCHEN” tech demo first shown at E3 2015. In the new teaser demo, the player awakens inside a dilapidated cottage on an ominous plantation mansion. Can they make it out alive? PlayStation Plus subscribers can now download the standalone teaser demo for PlayStation 4 and will have first access before it is available on other platforms at a later date.”
“Resident Evil 7 biohazard is the next major entry in the renowned Resident Evil series and sets a new course for the franchise as it leverages its roots and opens the door to a truly terrifying horror experience. A dramatic new shift for the series to first person view in a photorealistic style powered by Capcom’s new RE Engine, Resident Evil 7 delivers an unprecedented level of immersion that brings the thrilling horror up close and personal. The intense horror experience will be further amplified when playing the game in the included PlayStation VR Mode option on PS4.”
“Set in modern day rural America and taking place after the dramatic events of Resident Evil® 6, players experience the terror directly from the first person perspective. Resident Evil 7 embodies the series’ signature gameplay elements of exploration and tense atmosphere that first coined “survival horror” some twenty years ago; meanwhile, a complete refresh of gameplay systems simultaneously propels the survival horror experience to the next level.”
