Resident Evil VII Announced, Demo Available Today

During the Sony press conference at E3 2016, the next chapter in the Resident Evil franchise was unveiled, and you can play a demo this evening.

A mysterious dark room with a phone. Sparse lighting. Chilling, spooky mannequins. Ringing phones. It's a recipe for terror as the player explores a grim kitchen and dim-lit environs, with creepy aberrations lurking just out of sight, managing to cross the doorways just as the player tries to grab a quick peek. It's the stuff nightmares are made of, and sets the tone admirably.

Resident Evil VII will be available in full on both PlayStation VR and PS4.

You can play the demo later tonight on PS+.

Resident Evil VII will release on January 24, 2017.
