Resident Evil 7 is Not a Ghost Story but Devs Are Still vague About Zombies

Resident Evil 7 PS4 demo

Sony revealed a Resident Evil 7 demo at E3 2016 with support for PlayStation VR. The demo didn’t feel like Resident Evil and was more of a P.T 2.0. Many wondered if Resident Evil is moving away from the zombies and biological weapons lore to a more supernatural ghost like story.

Rest assured, Resident Evil 7 isn’t a supernatural ghost story even though its demo gives us the impression. Capcom assured the community but remains vague about the return of zombies and bio-weapons.

According to director Kōshi Nakanishi:

I’ve seen from initial reactions of what we’ve put out that people are getting the impression that we’ve taken Resident Evil and turned it into some sort of supernatural, occult, ghost story.

I think you can look at the trailer or the demo and get that impression, but don’t worry, we haven’t just thrown out Resident Evil as it exists and turned it into a ghost story. It will all make sense in the end.

Capcom already confirmed that the demo is not part of the main game. More of Resident Evil will be shared in the coming months ahead of its official release.

I know it’s frustrating holding back on what we can show fans, but this is really the best way to let you enjoy the game to the fullest when it finally comes out. We just have a trailer and a demo at this moment, but watch this space in the coming months and we hope you look forward to the game. We’re going to do our best to make the best game we can.

Resident Evil 7 is taking the series back to its roots early next year on PlayStation 4, PlayStation VR and other platforms. The game fully playable with PlayStation VR but many report motion sickness after playing the demo.
