In addition, the demo, which is currently only available for PlayStation Plus subscribers, has reached over 2 million downloads worldwide.

We would like to thank all our fans for the feedback and support – the nail-biting exploration and terrifying atmosphere in the demo is just a taste of what can be expected when the game releases on January 24, 2017.

A description of the Resident Evil 7 demo can be read below:

The Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour demo portrays events leading up to the main game and ties directly into the impactful PlayStation VR “KITCHEN” tech demo first shown at E3 2015. In the new teaser demo, the player awakens inside a dilapidated cottage on an ominous plantation mansion. Can they make it out alive?

With Resident Evil 7, Capcom hopes to set a new course for the series. The game will run on Capcom’s new RE Engine, and will make a shift to first person view in a photorealistic style. The horror title is set in modern day rural America and will take place after the dramatic events of Resident Evil 6. According to Capcom, “Resident Evil 7 embodies the series’ signature gameplay elements of exploration and tense atmosphere that first coined “survival horror” some twenty years ago; meanwhile, a complete refresh of gameplay systems simultaneously propels the survival horror experience to the next level”.
