Capcom To Showcase ‘Resident Evil 7’ Live-action Event, Launch This January!
'Resident Evil 7” is a complete turn from where the series had taken on. The horror roots of the game seemed to be lost more and more with every coming installment and it was finally the time for a drastic change in the series to bring back those chills that used to crawl down your spine.
To celebrate the coming release of the newest “Resident Evil” game, Capcom has organized a free live-action event which will put players in the “Resident Evil” universe for 45 minutes of horror. The event is situated in London and will be released in the form of a puzzle room, from which the players will have to escape in their attempt to uncover the mysteries hidden within.
The event is completely free, starting from 20th January and finishing on the 23rd of January, where entrance will be made on a first come – first served basis, PC Gamer reports.
Upload VR shares additional news on the “Resident Evil 7” experience. Participants in the event will be part of a paranormal TV Show’s crew. The show is called the Sewer Gators and they will investigate the disappearance of the first crew which went into the house and never came back. According to Capcom representatives, this is the perfect opportunity for everyone who has wanted to enter the dark world of “Resident Evil” and be part of it even if it is for only 45 minutes.
Resident Evil 7 News reports that the newest installment in the cult franchise will be available on PC, PS 4 and XBOX One. The game will play in the first person perspective and will take a turn towards survival horror elements typical for games like “Amnesia” and “Outlast”. Weapons will be available through the game, but they will be well hidden and ammunition will be scarce.
Those of you too eager to wait for the game’s release may indulge themselves in the VR special playthrough which was recently released on the internet. “Resident Evil 7” will be released on 24 January for PC, PS 4 and Xbox One.
