Resident Evil 7 Written by a Western Narrator, First Time in RE History

Resident Evil 7 is is written by Richard Pearsey, the creative talent behind Spec Ops: The Line and FEAR. This is the first time a major Resident Evil story is being handheld by someone from the west which means we may see a very different Resident Evil, something fresh that could bring the series back to form.

Pearsey also worked on the recent iOS game called iOS game 1979 Revolution, the title was banned in Iran.

Spec Ops and FEAR were both great games and it is safe to say Resident Evil 7 so far looks great. The title was revealed at E3 2016 and is fully playable in PlayStation VR. According to Capcom, this new entry will take the series back to its roots.

The game was announced at Sony’s E3 press conference but will come to other platforms as well. The PlayStation VR support is interesting and it is sort of like playing Silent Hills P.T in VR.

The game, or at least the demo, is clearly inspired by Konami’s cancelled game. Capcom has confirmed that the demo we saw at E3 won’t be a part of the game and we hope it isn’t.

The demo, when played in VR, is making people sick.

Many reviewers felt nauseated after playing the new Resident Evil demo. Resident Evil 7 VR demo allows players to control his head movements with a controller which is the root of this issue and if not fixed before release, PlayStation VR version of RE7 may not do so well in the market.

Resident Evil 7 will release on January 24, 2017.
