During Tokyo Game Show earlier today, Capcom revealed new details about the Resident Evil 7 biohazard demo – Beginning Hour, which is currently available exclusively to PlayStation Plus subscribers.
Capcom announced that the demo, which is free to download, has just recently passed the 3 million download mark worldwide on PS4. It was also announced that the demo would receive a brand new update allowing players to further explore the creepy and mysterious derelict mansion. The new “Twilight” version of the demo will be available later today and will be free for all PS4 users to download.
In addition, Capcom released a new trailer TAPE-2 “The Bakers” providing a long overdue glimpse at some of the intense combat found in Resident Evil 7, as well as a dinner to forget with the morbidly disturbed Baker family, a scene oddly reminiscent of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
Capcom also revealed that pre-orders for Resident Evil 7 will soon be available on PS4 with a standard edition of the game available for €64.99/£49.99, while players can also purchase Day-1 Survival Edition which is only available up until the game’s full release for a special price of €69.99/£52.99. Day-1 Survival Edition contains both the custom theme and the Survival Pack: Recovery Set which includes consumable healing items, an early unlock of the insanely difficult Madhouse mode, and a mysterious Lucky Coin in-game defense item.
Alternatively, players can purchase the Deluxe Edition priced at €94.99/ £69.99 which includes all previous content from the Day-1 Survival Edition along with the Season Pass containing access to three additional playable story episodes. Pre-orders for Microsoft and Steam digital releases will be available in the coming weeks.
Resident Evil 7 biohazard will be available January 24, 2017 for PlayStation 4 with PlayStation VR mode, Xbox One and PC
