Overview

After a long streak of action games, Capcom attempts to return to true survival horror in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.  The game promises to return to the spirit of the series: survival horror, which the first games popularized. In order to do this, the game heavily revamps its format by veering away from the “Gears of War”-style gameplay of the previous Resident Evil games.

Story and Walkthrough

Main Article: RE7 Walkthrough

Resident Evil 7 follows the story of Ethan Winters. Ethan goes to a haunted plantation in Dulvey, Louisiana to look for his wife, Mia. However, things don’t go quite as planned, and Ethan must fight for his life. The game is divided into 9 chapters.

Check out our full walkthrough of Resident Evil 7 on the link above for a detailed guide on completing the main story, solving puzzles, beating bosses and more. We will be updating each section regularly so be sure to watch out for updates as we find out more about the game.

Gameplay

RE7’s gameplay differs heavily from almost all of the main titles of  the Resident Evil saga. Instead of playing the game through a third person perspective, the player will experience Resident Evil 7 through the eyes of Ethan Winters, the main protagonist.
