One of the biggest surprises of E3 2016 was the announcement of Resident Evil VII, and the subsequent Beginning Hour demo Capcom unleashed on PS4 owners. However, fans soon discovered that the demo couldn’t really be completed, with many of its mysteries unsolvable, and its items without purpose. Capcom may be rectifying that soon, as it plans on releasing a brand new “Twilight Version” update for the demo on September 15th.
Capcom also released a new trailer for Resident Evil 7 today, one that gives players a new look at the terrifying Baker family, their unappetizing dining habits and some of the game’s first-person combat mechanics.
Additionally, pre-orders for Resident Evil 7 are now available for both the standard and deluxe versions for PlayStation 4. The deluxe edition was previously available for pre-order in North America for $79.99 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, 2017. Capcom also 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. 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.
All customers who pre-order the will receive a Survival Pack which includes consumable healing items, an early unlock of the insanely difficult Madhouse mode, and a mysterious Lucky Coin in-game defense item. In addition, North American pre-orders for the PS4 version on the PlayStation Store will instantly receive a dynamic theme for PS4. Pre-orders for Microsoft and Steam digital releases will be available in the coming weeks.
Resident Evil 7 is set to release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 24, 2017.
