Earlier in the week, we were privileged enough to have some hands-on time with the playable teaser for Resident Evil 7. Called “The Beginning Hour”, the teaser lets you run around a mansion while solving minor puzzles and slowly unraveling a mystery. I personally enjoyed it, but questioned just how “Resident Evil” the whole experience was. Thankfully, it seems that the final game won’t be totally devoid of the Resident Evil hallmarks.
Capcom held a post reveal stream where the producers of the title sat down and answered some questions that the community posed which might help to allay some concerns that die-hard fans of the franchise may have.
First off the team wanted to stress that the demo was designed to focus on demonstrating the style of exploration and horror that players can expect from the final game – but that the demo itself will not appear in the final game as the team wanted to make sure they gave as little as possible away to keep the mystery and a sense of uncertainty strong. And much like the demo, Resident Evil 7 won’t have quick time events.
