So far all week we've had some great teases and early looks at stuff coming to Resident Evil 7. Be it the pre-order bonuses that we could be getting to Capcom teasing us with new looks at the crazed family we were introduced to in the demo of the game. Well it looks like they were truly holding out to give us all of those fun updates for Resident Evil 7 until TGS as we have a new information dump on our hands here as well as a proper introduction to the Baker family. Thankfully there was no word on the gaming being delayed and it is still set to hit the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 24th. Let's hope this stays the same.
First up we have a new look at the Baker family as mentioned yesterday in an image tease that didn't show off too much. Now it looks like they were once truly happy people and through the events leading up to Resident Evil 7 something warped them into the murder hillbillies we are going to have to survive or maybe join in the game. It also looks like they have been infected by the T or G virus or something the same as they look to have no issue losing limbs or hacking them off each other as punishment. Assumingly that they will regrow at some point given the line "Not again." Have a look for yourself and welcome to the family now.
Resident Evil 7 — TAPE-2 “The Bakers”
Down in Dulvey, Louisiana lies an old, derelict plantation house that looks like it hasn’t seen use in years. It turns out someone is home, though – meet the Baker family and get a glimpse at what’s to come in Resident Evil 7 biohazard, available January 24th, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. In addition to being fully playable with the included optional PlayStation VR mode, Resident Evil 7 will also support 4K on the PlayStation 4 Pro.
Like I said though, that isn't the only bit of news coming to Resident Evil 7 here as it looks like the Deluxe Edition of the game has also been upgraded to give us more of the game than we thought as well. All without delaying it any further. As it looks, the original Deluxe Edition was going to give those who dropped $79.99 USD to pre-order the game two extra story episodes. Now there is a third one coming to add even more story to it all. Of course Capcom isn't doing that out of the kindness of their hearts and this edition will now cost $89.99 USD but that will only be for those who had yet to pre-order before today. They get the extra episode for the low cost of FREE.
Pre-orders for Resident Evil 7 are currently available in both standard and deluxe versions on PlayStation 4. The deluxe edition was previously available for pre-order in North America for $79.99 MSRP which included the main game and a season pass containing access to two additional playable story episodes which will be launching after the title’s release on January 24, 2016. Capcom confirmed today that the deluxe edition has been upgraded to include another playable story episode bringing the total of additional pieces of content to three and the price will be updated to $89.99 MSRP beginning tomorrow, September 15. Anyone who previously pre-ordered the digital deluxe edition in North America on the PlayStation Store will automatically be upgraded to the new deluxe edition at no additional charge.
But wait, there's still more. Hopefully you still remember that Resident Evil 7 demo that came out for all of those PS Plus members back at E3. It was a solid demo to show you the "feel" that they were going for with the new game and it was so wildly popular that it pulled in 3 million downloads to date. That number is about to get shattered as they have now made the demo available for anyone who has a PS4 and the time to play. For all of those who downloaded, played, and then deleted the demo you also have a reason to pick it back up as they have added in a lot more content and opened up more of the mansion for us to explore. Hopefully you are ready to crap yourself once again here.
At Tokyo Game Show earlier today, Capcom confirmed several new details about the Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour demo. Currently available exclusively to PlayStation Plus subscribers, it broke records as the most downloaded demo in the first seven days of its release for North America on PS4. Capcom shared that the demo has just recently reached over 3 million downloads worldwide to date. It was also announced that the demo will receive a brand new update that allows players to explore more of the mysterious, derelict mansion. This new “Twilight” version will be available tomorrow, September 15, and will be available for all PS4 users to download.
