We all have to agree that Resident Evil 4 was one of the most influential and best action games of all times, but it seems that the upcoming Resident Evil 7 will finally bring back the horror to the gamers.

The Resident Evil 5 and 6 were quite bad, because the developers have tried to go toe-to-toe with action genre games and it seems that they have forgotten about what this serious was about: horror.

A demo version of the upcoming Resident Evil 7: Biohazard has been released yesterday on the PlayStation Network, very shortly after Sony’s E3 press conference has ended. In the demo named “Beginning Hour” you will find yourself in a spooky house, which is nothing similar to any previous game in the series.

This demo is intended to give the Resident Evil fans a taste of what the next year’s survival horror game will be like. However, don’t expect it to be in the main game. According to the developer, the Resident Evil 7 teaser is “fully representative” of the kind of experience the players will get once the game will be officially released.

Unfortunately, the main playable character will not be the “macho superhero” type such as Chris Redfield from Resident Evil 5 or Leon Kennedy from Resident Evil 6. According to Masachika Kawata, the producer of the game, there will be a totally new character in this upcoming game.

When Kawata was asked to compare Resident Evil 7 with other horror games, such as Outlast or Amnesia, he said that both of them are great experiences, but he added that he felt frustrated because he couldn’t get a weapon in order to feel powerful enough to strike back when needed. On the other hand, the Resident Evil 7 playable character will have some weapons that he could use to hit the creatures that will attack him.

Kawata added that they didn’t show that aspect in the teaser demo of the Resident Evil 7, but weapons will exist once the full game will be released. The game will also come with some familiar Resident Evil mainstays such as healing herbs, but it will also feature elements of the series’ Western and Japanese titles.

The Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will be released for Windows PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on January 24, 2017.
