GamesCom Trailer: “Resident Evil 7”

Sony PlayStation has released a new gameplay trailer for “Resident Evil 7,” a trailer that includes a new found-footage sequence of a captive who must escape a plantation mansion to survive. Set in modern day Louisiana, the new entry aims to return to the series’ roots of survival horror.

The story follows on from the events of the sixth film and puts players in a first-person perspective for the first time in the series – allowing for the game to be played both in 2D on PlayStation 4 and in virtual reality on PlayStation VR. The game is slated for release on January 24th next year.
