Hopefully by now you've had a chance to give the Resident Evil 7 demo a run for its money and had a chance to see just how the game is going to play out. If anything you've at least seen some of the footage that Capcom has already pumped out there so far but have yet to explain any of the story. This would be the bigger reason why a lot of people don't think that Resident Evil 7 is going to be a "zombie" game still but more of a ghost story. Hopefully that will all change now as we have another amazing gameplay video to look at and enjoy here.
This video also comes along with a bit more of the story as we get to meet Marguerite from the Louisiana plantation that this portion of Resident Evil 7 will be playing out on. We already met her husband Jack, presumably, in the first found footage demo and videos and now we get to see more on why we are going to experience what we will and have so far. It looks like something crazy has happened to their lands and they went missing. These found footage videos seem to be the story of what happened to them in between them going missing and where we are jumping into things.
With all of this it does seem like this is how the core of all of Resident Evil 7 is going to be played out. Yes there will be some non-flashback kind of scenes if the demo had anything to say but seeing as this is yet another found footage bit it seems this is how Capcom is going to go back to its roots with the franchise. In fact, I have a feeling that all of this will be happening the timeline around the same time that the first Resident Evil took place but in a different facility. These videos and gameplay are just the populace or Umbrella looking back at the videos to better understand things. Mark my words…
Resident Evil 7 — Lantern
Set within the sinister plantation house in Dulvey, Louisiana, the Baker family, including Jack and Marguerite, were residents but no-one has seen or heard from them in a while. Where could they be? One thing is clear in the latest content to be shown from the game – there’s something not quite right within the plantation. Who is the mysterious girl in the gameplay? What does Marguerite want with her?
It is also worth noting that according to the news that comes with the video here, we won't be actually playing as the girl we see here. This would be the girl behind the camera and not the lantern carrier. She will be part of Resident Evil 7 is some way that has yet to explained but it needs to be noted. I'm guessing we'll "play" as her in the found footage like before but in terms of a main character she will only be in the story and not the core gameplay.
What do you think about what you saw here for Resident Evil 7? Do you think that all of the horror scenes will be played out as these found footage segments or will it be only small sections? Do you have any ideas on who this new character could be? Let us know your thoughts on it all and feel free to speculate down in the comments. For all things Resident Evil 7 be sure to stay right here as we'll keep bringing you all of the new details as they get released out there.
