Resident Evil 7 “KITCHEN” Demo Now Available for PlayStation VR

The intense Resident Evil 7 biohazard “KITCHEN” demo is available today alongside the release of PlayStation VR. The demo is included on a disc as part of the PlayStation VR headset package in North America and is available as a free download in Europe for PlayStation VR owners.

“KITCHEN” features a quick and intense glimpse of the immersive horror experience players can expect from Resident Evil 7 biohazard, when it releases on January 24, 2017. In this atmospheric teaser demo, a disturbing kitchen provides the unsettling backdrop for a tense scenario that draws players into a hyper-realistic virtual world like never before.

Resident Evil 7 biohazard will be one of the first AAA games to be completely playable in VR as an option from start to finish, or any part thereof, when it releases on PlayStation 4. The flexibility of the optional PlayStation VR Mode included with the game gives players complete control over how much they want to engage in the immersive and terrifying VR experience. In fact, players are able to use the same save data to play the game in either standard or PlayStation VR Mode at any point.

Players experience the terror directly from the first person perspective for the first time in the Resident Evil series. Embodying the iconic gameplay elements of exploration and tense atmosphere that first coined “survival horror” some twenty years ago, Resident Evil 7 biohazard delivers a disturbingly realistic experience that will define the next era in horror entertainment. Returning to the series roots, signature gameplay features including exploration, puzzles and a realistic tense atmosphere awaits players. The classic inventory system returns but with limited space meaning players must choose what they carry with them carefully, making sure they remember to pack their green herbs!
