Capcom has today finally released the highly anticipated Resident Evil 7 Biohazard video game which is now available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One systems.
The single player survival horror game is set approximately four years after the events of Resident Evil 6, during 2017 in the fictional city of Dulvey, Louisiana. Players take the role of Ethan Winters, a civilian who offers fewer combat skills than most previous Resident Evil protagonists.
Check out the official launch trailer below to learn more about what you can expect from Resident Evil 7 Biohazard.
The game begins with Ethan traveling to Louisiana after having received a request from Mia to find her there, despite the fact that Mia had gone missing three years ago and was presumed dead. When Ethan arrives, he finds a seemingly abandoned farmhouse with Mia imprisoned in the basement. Mia warns him that they must escape before “Daddy” finds them. Ethan then receives a phone call from a woman named Zoe, who tells him that there is an escape route through the attic. However, as Ethan and Mia make their way up there, Mia suddenly goes berserk and begins attacking Ethan, forcing him to kill her in self defense. He is then knocked out by Jack Baker, the patriarch of the Baker family.
Ethan then wakes up to find himself captive and in the company of the Baker family, who consist of Jack, his wife Marguerite, their son Lucas, and an unnamed elderly woman in a wheelchair. The Bakers attempt to force feed him their food and begin torturing him until they are distracted by a phone call. Ethan manages to break free from his bonds and tries to find a way to escape the Bakers’ mansion. During this time, he periodically receives helpful advice from Zoe, who reveals herself to be Jack’s daughter. When a police officer comes to investigate the mansion, Ethan tries to warn him about the Bakers, but the officer is skeptical of his claims and is killed by Jack. Ethan manages to kill Jack in response, but quickly finds out that Jack and the other Bakers have powerful regenerative abilities, allowing them to heal normally fatal wounds. Ethan must also avoid monstrous creatures that the Bakers have been creating from other people they have kidnapped. Eventually, Ethan has a second showdown with Jack, killing him again and obtaining the key he needs to escape the mansion.
