    Resident Evil 7: biohazard (also officially stylised as Resident Evil VII: Biohazard in some circles) is happening, people.

    PlayStation Plus subscribers can check out a playable Resident Evil 7: biohazard - Beginning Hour teaser demo on PS4 right here: http://bit.ly/RE7e3

    Steve!!!

    Thanks for compiling,
    Ill watch all this before thinking about whether I should complain or not.

    Edit:
    Story wise I'm interested
    Gameplay wise, I'm not.
    I don't really like first person Survival horrors. They get very samey as time goes on.
    Alien isolation and outlast for example, they both were fun and creepy as hell to begin with. But by the end you are just redoing the same 2 things over and over (run and hide) making small bits of progress each time.
    The former game though you could actually fight back but even that was stale.

    I would like it if the first person was story segmented like returning to the apartment in silent hill 4 or when youre interviewed by the psychiatrist in until dawn. But I don't think I could handle going through an entire rezzy game this way.
    Especially since the rezzy games we know are how they are, with the 3rd cgi film coming out next year also.
    I honestly hope the first person VR concept is just like a PT deal, but is only used sparingly in the actual game.

    The demo feels more like I'm playing thru a Rob Zombie horror movie. Like House of 1000 Corpses without the awesome song.

    hmm,First person RE ?
    idk that didn't worked out very well... just like outlast ,or Alien isolation,i rarely see anyone talk about it....
    idk why i keep go back and still play the Old RE while i have a feeling this one gonna die soon, because of the internet you watch some game play and spoil it...

    I loved what I heard and saw in the trailer. :)

    But, making an awesome trailer is one thing, making an awesome game is something else. We can only hope.

    RE 7 is the true successor to original RE 1.

    My one wish is that they don't completely isolate from the previous Resident Evil's, like they are talking about. The producers talk about how this will be a new start and honestly i'm glad. I think some characters have become samey and cliched but i hope some characters return. Not a character that was obscure and unimportant but a character that is rather known and okay.

    This looks like it'll be scary. But god I hope theres a 3rd person option. I hate 1st person. Resident evil doesn't need 1st person to be scary.

    Can someone link me to the ESRB description, saw it on reddit/4chan yesterday. Tried searching on the website [esrb] but to no avail, could not find it. Crazy to think they could leak story like that, i only though it was for age rating.

    All i know is the main characters name is Ethan.

    if you could link or reply with a pic that would be great.

    This is like DEJA VU! I swear to God in 2012 i read a thread just like this except it was called "RE 6" instead of 7, though i would say this time it actually looks like it could deliver on its promise.

    Time freaking flies when you're not a kid! 2012 feels like yesterday to me.
