While watching The Texas Chainsaw Massacre in its various guises over the years, the thought has never once crossed my mind that I would like to be one of those people trying to flee for their lives from some inbred Texan family who subsist off eating human offal. Capcom hopes you’ll pay $60 for the privilege with Resident Evil 7 though, and the basis of the latest trailer you’re going to need to be prepared for a truly terrifying ordeal.

It’s like all my worst P.T. / Alien Isolation / Amnesia nightmares rolled into one. The stars of the show are the Baker family, from Dulvey, Louisiana. They live in a derelict plantation house and are clearly far more preoccupied with torture than giving the carpets a nice hoover.

While the snippets we’re seeing and playing seem unconnected, there are a few new details to be gleaned from this trailer. Combat is now very much a thing, at least in some capacity, and the player can get their hands on firearms to defend themselves. It appears as if Capcom is barreling down the survival horror route with the combat though; aiming looks tricky and imprecise.

All in all I can’t tell whether I’m looking forward to or dreading the prospect of pulling down my headset and experiencing Resident Evil VII in VR.

For those of you of a PlayStation persuasion, an updated demo is due to hit at some point so look out for that. It continues the tale of Resi Evil 7: The Beginning Hour, and should finally help us understand what to do with the mannequin’s finger.

So Capcom is finally saying no to third person perspective and zombies in a RE game. It just might be the change this series needed.
